Run DMC

One of the greatest hip hop crews of all time will reunite to play Fun Fun Fun Fest (Nov 2 - 4) in Austin, Texas! Darryl McDaniels (more commonly known as DMC) and Joseph Simmons (Run or Reverend Run) will reunite Run DMC to play the Austin Festival. The show will be their first in ten+ years, since the tragic passing of the great Jam Master Jay.

The festival goes down on November 2nd-4th in Austin, TX and features previously announced names like Atlas Sound, Baroness, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Starfucker, Rakim, Lagwagon, The Head and The Heart, Danny Brown, David Cross, Bob Mould, Tomahawk, Against Me!, and many that will be announced with the full lineup on Thursday (7/12), the same day weekend 3-day passes go on sale. A few PIP Passes are still available now. A portion of the proceeds from the ticket goes towards Jam Master Jay's JMJ Foundation for Music "which is dedicated to providing access to the arts, regardless of socio-economic status, for children and young adults."

Some classic Run DMC tracks are below.

Reuniting? 1/3 of the group is dead. Hilarious.

Memo: No one cares about show dates that aren't in NYC (or maybe close by in NJ).

^ But it's true. Believe me, I'm sure most are just trying to see if there's a date that's at the very least in the tri-state area (if not in NYC). Rarely do people here give a shit about an Austin date.


You country boy.

If the Smiths or Talking Heads reunited I would care about an Austin date!

it's not just an "austin date", it's a decent sized festival. people travel distances for festivals

texas is probably one of the few states where they could get away with this "reunion"

There is no real RUN DMC without Jay.

He's Jam Master Jay, the big beat blaster
He gets better 'cause he knows he has to
In '84 he'll be a little faster
And only practice makes a real Jam Master!

Anyone remember when DMC played the Jelly party at the waterfront solo?

Maybe the can pass off to this "reunion" of RUN DMC to country folks, but NYC knows better.
