Let’s admit it, Fun Fun Fun Fest has become the quintessential Austin music festival.  Come on, what other festival gives you a cannon that shoots tacos into the crowd? Backstage I saw a man walking around with dollar bills stapled all over his body requesting people staple him.  The weird Austin vibe was definitely felt, and fun (times 3) was definitely had.  While I did enjoy the music, I was also having a blast walking around and “style watching” (a fashion blogger’s version of people watching.)

Music and style go together like chips and salsa, and with the variety of music that played at the festival came with it a variety of fashions turning Auditorium Shores into a microcosm of style.  Overall there was of course some throwback 70’s inspired looks, an essential music festival style, but the 90’s grunge era also had a big influence on several festival goers.  I enjoyed making my way from the Orange Stage, the biggest and most mainstream stage, towards the Black Stage and watching the fashions fade from t-shirts and shorts to black leather, studs, and patches.
