dance to express, not to impress

FPSF Round 5

Last year Free Press kicked it up a peg with Pretty Lights and Afrojack which took FPSF over the top to be the biggest Houston music festival in a long time with over 40,000 attendees last year. Obviously EDM is hot why not do it again, well this year we get to see Bassnectar, Calvin Harris, Passion Pit, Mord Fustang (EMF13 performer), Matt & Kim, and Borgore, oh and we have newly formed local act TRVP LORDS  (ROB BASS & DJ SINIK) on the lineup as well. Can’t wait to just get wet raging out to bassnectar who has not been to houston in what seems like a small lifetime.


We hear that the production should be unlike anything we have seen, plus its always interesting to see a traditionally non-EDM festival expand on its production, always makes for a fun, creative experience. Non-EDM acts we are excited about include MGK who has really done a good job merging EDM into his live performances with acts like M!NT and BAAUER (live video) also he is one of the only acts where i approve of his Tiesto hook being used in his songs (song).
