Free Press Summer Fest, Houston’s largest music festival, is coming up this weekend at Eleanor Tinsley Park. The festival is in its fourth year, and it seems to be getting bigger every year. With more than 100 bands on 8 stages over 2 days, it’s a good idea to get familiar with the lineup ahead of time.
You’re probably already familiar with the headliners – Snoop, Willie, Avett Brothers – but you might not be as familiar with some of the other bands, especially some of the really excellent local bands. So I put together a short list of acts I recommend checking out at FPSF. Take a look and a listen below, then check out the complete schedule to make your plans. And come say hi to me in the VIP Blogger tent.*
*What?! There is no VIP Blogger tent?! That’s crap – I was promised free Vitamin Water & Tito’s.
