ColleGrove, a bounce-rap duo composed of Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, leads the handful of lineup additions to Free Press Summer Fest just announced this morning, alongside witheringly sarcastic singer-songwriter Father John Misty and goth-pop ingenue Zola Jesus. The other additions announced are Brooklyn duo Lewis Del Mar and New Orleans's legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
There we were thinking FPSF couldn't surprise us anymore. We were also hoping some more locals would also be announced, but we'll have to see what happens.
Ticket prices have now increased to $157.50 for a two-day GA pass, minus fees. The festival is June 4 and 5 at Eleanor Tinsley Park. See fpsf.com to buy tickets and for other details.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
