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 pegstar.net 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.

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.
