Free Press Summerfest Tickets
Summer is the season of music festivals with more and more
popping up every year. One of the most anticipated of the summer is the Free Press Summerfest in Houston, Texas. The acts
are a mix of hip hop, pop, rock and almost everything in between. 2013 saw some of the biggest acts in the work grace the
Summerfest stage like Seattle hip hop star Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, who hit #2 on the Billboard charts with the smash hit
"Can't Hold Us". Indie-electronic duo The Postal Service was also a headliner in 2013, featuring the lead singer of Death
Cab for Cutie, Benjamin Gibbard. Though The Postal Service released their one and only album Give Up in 2003, the record was
an incredible success and fans rejoice to see the duo live. Other notable 2013 performers included Arctic Monkeys, 2 Chainz
and Social Distortion. In 2012, the lineup was just as impressive. Snoop Dogg, 1990's rap superstar, rose to the top of the
music world when he was featured on Dr Dre's epic gangster rap albumThe Chronic in 1992, but his debut releaseDoggystylein
1993 made him a megastar, debuting at #1 on the charts. Another headliner in 1992 was the Avett Brothers, folk and bluegrass
pop stars from North Carolina, who hit is big in 2009 with I and Love and You, which was produced, oddly enough, by legendary
hip hop trailblazer Rick Rubin, co-founder of Def Jam records.
Though the lineup for 2014 has yet to be released, with
2013's festival selling out, look for the event to top itself for the sixth installment. Expect some of top artists and DJ's
of 2013 to be in Houston in June 2014.
Free Press Summerfest is quickly becoming one of the hottest
music events of the summer season. Held annually in Eleanor Tinsley Park in Houston, Texas, Free Press Summerfest is a 2 day
celebration of music and arts. The festival is brought to us by Free Press Houston and Pegstar.net Presents, who wanted to
celebrate the local music and art scene in Houston. The inaugural event took place in August 2009 with 30,000 fans enjoying
bands like Broken Social Scene, O Pioneers!, and local hip hop star Devin the Dude. A portion of the proceeds from the event
go to worthy local causes, which change every year. Another focus of the event is environmental awareness, especially the
power of recycling. The 2010 lineup drew headliners like Martin, Medeski and Wood and The Flaming Lips. 2011 drew big names
as well, like Weezer, Big Boi, and Yeasayer, with the attendance doubling to 60,000 fans. With 2012 seeing headliners like
Willie Nelson, The Flaming Lips, Two Door Cinema Club and Erykay Badu, the festival began to draw not just local heroes, but
some of the biggest names in music. The 2012 attendance was triple the original figure from 2009 and the Free Press Summerfest
became one of the must see festivals of the summer. The 2013 version took the event to even greater heights with tickets selling
out for artists like Passion Pit, Alabama Shakes, Arctic Monkeys and Geto Boys. Fans are waiting with bated breath to see
who takes the stage in 2014, but if this upward trend continues, it will be its best yet.
