Sound on Sound Fest
Despite being partially rained out, the allure of renaissance games and a muddy performance by Young Thug were enough to bring thousands to the first-year fest.

Last week Sound on Sound Fest, or SOS as attendees called it, took place in the enchanted Sherwood Forest, the typical hosting ground for the Texas Renaissance Fair. The event, which was billed as a replacement for Fun Fun Fun Fest, attracted thousands of fans throughout Central Texas with its stacked line-up and medieval entertainment.
Featuring performers such as Phantogram, Beach House, Run the Jewels, Young Thug, Death Grips and Courtney Barnett, music lovers of all kinds had a reason to attend. With renaissance games like axe-tossing and an opportunity to camp, the three-day festival was unique enough to raise the possibility of the concert becoming a tradition in the area. Though the third day was partially rained out, early buzz about the event is positive.
