Free Press Summer Fest Lineup Out Monday 3/5

After weeks of delay, the Free Press Summer Fest (June 2-3 in Houston) lineup will finally be announced tomorrow, Monday, March 5th at an unannounced time. More importantly, while pre-sale tickets are currently $45 for a 2-day pass, you can score one for a steal if you feel like waking up when a limited amount of tickets go on sale for just $15 at 5 a.m. on Monday. They will probably go up to $60 after the lineup is released later in the day.

The Houston, TX festival planners posted on Facebook that the lineup would be "coming soon" on February 4th, but weeks went by with only the news that Major Lazer will be one of the headliners (whose performance at FFF Fest 2011 managed to explode and implode my brain at the same time). Also leaked are appearances by Two Door Cinema Club and Maps & Atlases. Word is that the festival team was waiting to make the big announcement due to working on booking someone "BIG". This could be huge; from the fest's humble beginnings in 2009, it has grown exponentially in an extremely short amount of time - probably helped by a combination of the continuing popularity of music festivals and a bit of Austin-envy. But Summer Fest is no joke - Weezer, Cut Copy, Ween, Beirut, Yeasayer, Chromeo, and Big Boi were just a few of the major acts to grace this festival last year, and The Flaming Lips and Girl Talk headlined in 2010. Keep an eye out for an update on the lineup.
