Austin, Texas -- Separating itself from the myriad lineups already announced for the 2014 festival season, Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest has named old-school British heavy metal band Judas Priest as one of its headliners. 

Judas Priest will be joined by Nas and Death Cab For Cutie as fellow headliners, along with Girl Talk, Neutral Milk Hotel, King Diamond, Wiz Khalifa, Alt-J, Death From Above 1979, 2 Chainz, Death Grips, Rocket From The Crypt, Dinosaur Jr., Atmosphere, and many more as support. Scroll down for the full lineup, which was announced last night during a screening of cult classic Stunt Rock at the Blue Starlite Drive-In.

Fun Fun Fun Fest will take place November 7-9 at Auditorium Shores and, for the first time this year, in nearby Butler Park. FFF tickets are on sale now for $195 (3-day GA) and $450 (VIP/Ultimate Smooth).
