You’ve probably been anticipating the lineup release for FPSF 2013 since June 4th of last year.
One or two of you have probably even crossed various body parts in secular prayer, pleading to the music goddesses for the chance to see your favorite band perform live in Houston during FPSF. We know that feel, y’all and we’re happy to make your wishes come true.
This year’s lineup includes a synthesis of iconic musical veterans and burgeoning talent that represents a musical palate carefully crafted to please both casual and ardent fans. The 2013 headliners include: reunited electropop innovators The Postal Service, punk rock patriarchs Iggy and The Stooges, EDM extraordinaire BASSNECTAR, three-time Grammy-nominated Alabama Shakes, Passion Pit, TV on the Radio, Gypsy-punk heroes Gogol Bordello, singer-songwriter Cat Power, Icelandic folk quartet Of Monsters and Men, punk mavens Social Distortion, British indie rockers Arctic Monkeys, rhythm and blues icon Mavis Staples, legendary Houston rap trio The Geto Boys, and many more. Be sure to peep the full lineup below.
For our fifth year, FPSF is significantly expanding production efforts with the addition of a third main stage, a refreshing and innovative approach to food—one that will represent the best local eats this city has to offer—and another exciting collaboration with Anvil’s Bobby Heugel and his team of fine cocktail-making bandits. This year’s festival will also build upon its already growing arts presence with the inclusion of large-scale, interactive artwork that is designed to bring festival goers closer together through fun, hands-on art projects.
