Free Press Summer Fest

Of all the big American summer music festivals, Houston’s Free Press Summer Fest may be historically the most universally booked. Its lineup seems to pay no attention to genre-lines, and yet it’s consistently full of big draws, and it all somehow makes sense together. (It’s also one big festival that was booking Southern rap acts when the rest of the world was still scared of that stuff.) The festival just announced this year’s lineup, and it’s characteristic of the fest. Vampire Weekend, Jack White, Lauryn Hill, and Zedd will all headline. The undercard is full of worth-seeing stuff from around the musical map: Wu-Tang Clan, Dwight Yoakam, Deftones, the Kills, Childish Gambino, Sky Ferreira, tUnE-yArDs, Chvrches, Die Antwoord, Washed-Out, Jana Hunter, Drive-By Truckers, First Aid Kit, Flatbush Zombies, King Khan & The Shrines, White Sea, Destruction Unit, a no-longer-boxing-George-Zimmerman DMX, and a whole pile of others. Also, the idea of seeing Ying Yang Twins in 2014 is weirdly extremely appealing. It all goes down 5/31 and 6/1 at Eleanor Tinsley Park, and you’ll find details here.

  1. Pretty good line-up pretty weird to see ying yang twins on there haha

    • Alright someone just hates me. What about this comment deserved a downvote? I just said it was unexpected to see ying yang twins on the line up nothing good or bad about the ying yang twins or about the line up and even if you disagreed with my opinion that it was unexpected appearance it seems like an opinion you wouldn’t need to voice a distaste for. Now this pointless unnecessary and tedious comment I could understand downvoting , but the previous I just have to think is someone hunting me down for a previous comment I made that they were still upset with about. Of course I could just be reading into this too much.

  2. !!! #veryjazzed to be jamming / can’t wait to talk wire-fiddles with the* jack white lol
