This year's Fun Fun Fun Fest has just been announced to take place Nov. 7-9 at Auditorium Shores and Butler Park in the live music mecca of Austin, Texas. The FFF Fest always seems to deliver a solid bill, but this year it's extra special, as Judas Priest have been announced as festival headliners while the almighty King Diamond will also play a rare live show.

2014 is set to be a landmark year for Judas Priest. The band's 17th album 'Redeemer of Souls' is only a few months away from release and the Fun Fun Fun Fest is the band's first announced North American date of the year.

King Diamond is yet another amazing surprise announced for the ninth annual FFF Fest, as the master of metal falsetto will perform as well. King Diamond has taken it easy lately, performing very sporadically throughout the past eight years.

Other bands confirmed for this year's FFF Fest include Amon Amarth, Sick of it All, Deafheaven, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine, Dinosaur Jr., Iron Reagan, Pallbearer + many others.
