The initial Free Press Summer Fest 2013 line-up was announced today… and it’s fan-freakin-tastic.
Gotta give wicked credit to Houston for putting on an annual music fest with a consistently good line-up that DOESN’T include Paul Wall every year (not that I would complain).
My crew and I went last year and despite the intense heat (it’s in the first week of June), we were able to enjoy great sets from The Flaming Lips, Snoop Dogg (just before his “Snoop Lion” fiasco), Z-Ro Morris Day & the Time, Afrojack, Diplo, Wallpaper, Fitz & the Tantrums, among others.
Without further ado, here’s the 2013 Free Press Summer Fest line-up (and can I mention how AWESOME it is that Quad City DJs are performing?! Come on, ride the train, it’s the choochoo train, woo woo!!):
