Pop Giants Fun. Announce Sideshows

'As big as Kanye' in the states, fun. make their introduction to Australian audiences.

More Fun. More Fun.

One of the most prominent pop acts in the world at the moment, you'd have been forgiven for not knowing who fun. were at the start of the year. Indeed, you'd still be forgiven now, but with the trio appearing on the Splendour In The Grass line-up it's probably about time you found out.

After building a strong base with their 2009 debut Aim And Ignite, the band have enjoyed chart-dominating, Gotye-esque success with We Are Young- featuring Janelle Monae. And not just overseas either, the track has topped our own charts.

As well as their festival appearance, they've announced their first even Australian headline shows:

Wednesday 25 July - The Metro, Sydney
Friday 27 July - The Hi-Fi, Melbourne
Saturday 28 July - The Hi-Fi, Melbourne (under 18s matinee)
