FPSF lineup hopes, expectations


Entering the second semester of the school, the anticipation for the summer season is inevitable.

There are always high hopes and expectations for summer time. Free Press Summer Fest is definitely one of things in particular that most people look forward to. FPSF is one of the largest music festivals in Texas and without a doubt one of the most anticipated events of the year next to Austin City Limits.

When FPSF first hit the scene in 2009 it was not all glitter and gold, but with the yearly improvement of caliber artists, FPSF has made its presence known and felt within the music festival industry. Just like Spiderman, the same goes for FPSF: “with great power comes great responsibility”, so of course there will be a lot of speculations for the artists that will be coming to perform this June.

We can immediately start scratching artist off the list of FPSF hopefuls such as Drake, DeadMau5, Lana Del Rey, Rae Sremmurd and sadly the childhood favorite Weird Al Yankovic. Though there are some big headliners that can not perform there we can still keep our hopes up for artist who are steadily producing banging hits. Artists such as Chance the Rapper, Wiz Khalifa, Disclosure, Steve Aoki, Skrillex and Nero.

This is just a list of artist that hopefully can come through, but with that being said we will not truly know if our hopes and dream become reality until the release of the lineup. Obviously everyone gets hype for the lineup, but what Mother Nature has in store is also a crucial thing to look forwards to. The first day of Free Press Summer Fest was far from clear skies with rain showers on and off which definitely made the first half of the music festival chaotic and hectic.

Though it made FPSF a little adventurous, I can speak for half of FPSF goers, by saying we hope Tim Heller says there is nothing but clear skies on this special weekend. Even if the Mother Nature decides to slow our roll at FPSF, if the lineup lives up to our hopes and expectation you can expect to have the time of your life.

So if you did not buy your presale ticket, make sure you snag one once the lineup is announced. I will personally show you how to get down on June 6 and 7.
