Free Press Summer Festival changes location due to flooding

HOUSTON – The seventh annual Free Press Summer Festival will be held June 6 and 7.  But the event will move from Eleanor Tinsley Park to NRG Park. The festival will be held in the yellow lot. 

Storms have oversaturated the ground at Eleanor Tinsley Park, and organizers do not want to cause any further damage to the newly renovated grounds.

"While we are disappointed to move the festival again this year, we have a solid plan in place for fans to have a great FPSF experience at NRG Park. The safety of our patrons, artists and staff, as well as the preservation of Eleanor Tinsley Park are of the highest priority to all involved," said festival co-founder, Jagi Katial.

Free Press Summer Festival will proceed as planned and all tickets will be honored at the new venue. At this time, performance schedules will remain the same, with doors opening at 11 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
