AUSTIN, TX (JULY 10, 2012) -- Fun Fun Fun Fest is excited to announce today that Run-D.M.C. will perform at the 7th annual festival which takes place November 2-4th in Austin, TX for the first time since disbanding in 2002. Surviving members Joseph "Run" Simmons and Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels will headline the main stage.

Run-D.M.C. formed in Hollis Queens, NY in the early '80s and are considered by many to be the true pioneers of hip-hop, in terms of beats, lyrics, fashion, and impact. Both their self-titled debut as well as the much-lauded Raising Hell in 1986 influenced the youth of a generation and eventually paved the way for many of today's rap's superstars.

Run-D.M.C. retired the moniker in 2002 following the untimely death of legendary DJ and producer, Jason "Jam-Master Jay" Mizell. In honor of Jay's life, FFF festival promoters are working with the band to donate a portion of proceeds to his foundation the JMJ Foundation for Music which is dedicated to providing access to the arts, regardless of socio-economic status, for children and young adults. Learn more about Jay's foundation here: www.jammasterjay.org/JMJfoundation.html
