Free Press Summer Fest set for Houston splash

May 29, 2013 by  

The fifth annual Houston Free Press Summer Fest is rapidly approaching the Bayou City in Texas, and will see a huge number of local and national musical acts bring their craft to over 60,000 eagerly awaiting fans.

Hosted in the Eleanor Tinsley Park, the festival represents notable accomplishments in visual and performance arts, as well as various sustainability initiatives. Headliners this year include The Postal Service, Bassnectar, Iggy and the Stooges, and Passion Pit to name but a few of a comprehensive list of recognizable and popular acts. The festival also provides music workshops for attendees looking to brush up on their own musical abilities.

The festival also prides itself on its promotional efforts for local visual artists. Artists make proposals months in advance for their work to be featured in front of the tens of thousands of festival goers. The festival then chooses the best of the artists to represent what is happening in the local Houston art scene.

Local print companies usually provide assistance in preparing flyer printing to promote the event. Artists also order business card printing as it behooves them to have the cards available at their various art displays in case visitors would like to contact them later to place an order or commission an art project.

The Free Press Summer Fest website has complete information about the event, ticket sales, and sponsorship and vendor applications. The event will be held this weekend, June 1 and 2.
