Summer Fest Adds Big Boi, Beirut, Girls, Killing Joke

Free Press Summer Fest has added four headliners to the two-day festival scheduled for June 4 and 5 in Eleanor Tinsley Park, organizers Free Press Houston and announced this morning.

Atlanta rapper Big Boi (still one-half of OutKast, we think), Balkan-tinged indie-rockers Beirut, San Francisco sunshine kids Girls and industrial-goth groundbreakers Killing Joke join a lineup that already includes Weezer, Ween, Z-Ro, Cut Copy, Yeasayer, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, Bun B, Hayes Carll, Guitar Wolf and many more.

Passes are available online now and go on sale next week at Cactus Music (2110 Portsmouth). New this year is a "Dancey Pants" pass that grants admission into the VIP electronic tent.

See more information at the festival's Web site.
