Fun Fun Fun Fest takes place in Austin, Texas on Nov. 6-8, and today, its lineup was revealed via a hilarious video starring Bill Nye, the Science…Man. He explains in “scientific” terms what makes a music festival fun, like the proper ratio of convenience to tacos. He also discusses the festival’s many make-out zones, and has some fun with science puns. Oh, and climate change is real: The Science Man has spoken. But most importantly, we know who’s playing the fest this year.
