FREE PRESS SUMMER FEST 2010
JUNE 5TH AND 6TH AT
ELEANOR TINSLEY PARK
Yeah, that’s right! The Flaming Lips are aiming to dominate their neighbor state in the next few months, as they headline March’s highly anticipated NX35 festival right after they kickoff SXSW at the Austin Music Hall. Now it’s just been announced that they will also headline the Free Press Summer Fest this June.
The Houston fest is making its play to become a more diverse festival this year, and just check out their lineup to prove their point. They’ll also be hosting Stars, Girl Talk, Ra Ra Riot, MMW, Uh Huh Her, Lucero and tons of local acts as well.
Another super-bonus? The prices. Weekend passes start at just $22.50 a piece and if you want delicious air-conditioning, pay only $50 to get that access. With their commitment to greening the fest, Free Press Summer Fest might just be the ACL Festival circa 2003. And that’s a very good thing as far as I’m concerned. With all the giant sweaty, super-priced festivals happening this summer, this one is worth checking out.
