Star Slinger and Big K.R.I.T. round out the Austin festival's second batch of announced performers.

Fun Fun Fun Fest continues to spill the lineup: on Thursday, the fest has announced Flag, Big K.R.I.T., Star Slinger and Deerhunter will be joining previously announced acts Ice-T, the Walkmen, Bonobo, Judge and the Julie Ruin.

The new batch is an eclectic mix of music: the electronic sound of Star Slinger, Big K.R.I.T.'s hip-hop, Deerhunter's ferocious indie rock and the vintage punk of Flag, one of two bands this year playing the music of Black Flag, with this incarnation including Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski and Bill Stevenson.

Fun Fun Fun Fest will return to Austin, Texas on Nov. 8-10. The full lineup will be revealed on July 10, the same date that tickets go on sale.
