How I Would Plan It: Free Press Summer Fest 2015

Free Press Summer Fest is a 2-day annual music festival in Houston, generally at Eleanor Tinsley Park. The fest started in 2009 and got my attention a few years back. I think this year’s lineup felt a little weaker than the last few years, but the schedule looked pretty good once I laid it all out. Due to the flooding in the South Texas area, the event has been moved to the NRG Field lots near Reliant Stadium, because everyone wants to party with 50,000 people in a parking lot. They also have a Fancy Pants Stage, exclusive to attendees with Fancy Pants passes, but I left those performances out of this schedule, for the little people. If you fancy, check it yourself. There are some good performance times for some solid acts there. Anyways:
