Run-D.M.C. Announces First Performance At The Fun Fun Fun Fest This November

(AllHipHop News) Today (July 10), Hip-hop group Run-D.M.C. confirmed their first appearance together in over 10 years.

AllHipHop.com broke the news about the group’s reuniting last week.
Organizers for the Fun Fun Fun Fest have confirmed that Run-D.M.C. will hit the stage during the annual festival, which takes place from November 2 – four in Austin Texas.

The performance marks Run-D.M.C.’s first official appearance together, since disbanding after the death of jam Master Jay in 2002.

Both Run and D.M.C. will headline the main stage of the Fun Fun Fun Fest.

“We couldn’t be more excited. Run-D.M.C. is one of our favorite bands, and one of the most influential groups of all-time – that we never thought that we would get to see play live, much less play in Austin at our festival,” Fun Fun Fun Fest producer James Moody told AllHipHop.com in a statement.

“This is as big as it gets and we are so proud to be working with them,” Moody added.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Jam Master Jay’s JMJ Foundation for Music, which is dedicated to providing access to the arts.

Other artists performing during the Fun Fun Fun Fest include Rakim, Danny Brown, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Starfucker, Atlas Sound and others.
