Free Press Summer Fest This Weekend

While Austin is buzzing with Chaos in Tejas Houston will be holding their annual Free Press Summer Festival at Eleanor Tinsley Park. The line-up is more mainstream than FunFunFun Fest and more indie than Austin City Limits Fest. Each year FSPF has booked an increasingly solid batch of artists and this year is no exception. If you can't find some music you like on any of the festival's NINE stages then there is, clearly, something wrong with you. Flaming Lips, Afrojack, Snoop Dogg and Erykah Badu headline Saturday night. Sunday night you'll have the chance to hear, Willie Nelson, Descendants, The Avett Brothers, Primus, and Pretty Lights. There are still passes available for one or both days. Oh, and don't worry, if these bold names don't make your heart race there are lots of other really great bands playing FPSF.
