Houston Open Air producer Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents explains, “We’re excited to bring a new rock festival to Houston. I have been looking at Houston for years. The market has all the elements needed for a unique destination festival: a strong rock community, a vibrant food scene, and a love of great whiskey and craft beer. We’re looking forward to bringing the Houston market a full festival experience with top rock bands, showing the rest of the country all that Houston has to offer, and helping to showcase some of the reasons that the Washington Post named Houston as one of the Top 5 food cities in America.”
Given the devastation caused by the recent flooding, Houston Open Air festival organizers are in talks with the Houston Mayor’s Office to highlight local disaster relief efforts and fundraising. Details of this program will be announced along with the lineups. In the meantime, we encourage people to donate to http://www.houstonrecovers.org/.
