Ice-T, Judge, The Walkmen, Bonobo and The Julie Ruin (which includes former Bikini Kill members Kathleen Hanna and Kathi Wilcox) are among the acts that will play Fun Fun Fun Fest in November, the festival announced Wednesday.

Organizers Transmission Events also announced that a second round of tickets for the festival, which will take place at Auditorium Shores from Nov. 8-10, will go on sale at 10 a.m. through funfunfunfest.com.

The partial lineup announcement includes an older hip-hop act, a reunited hardcore band, a DJ and and two rock acts — a diverse approach to booking that has helped to set the event apart from the much larger Austin City Limits Music Festival. The full lineup is expected in the beginning of July.
