Following a weekend of record breaking attendance in Florida—including more than 50,000 at a sold out Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville in Jacksonville and over 23,000 at Monster Energy Fort Rock in Fort Myers–Danny Wimmer Presents has announced the first annual Houston Open Air music, whiskey, craft beer and Gourmet Man Food festival debuting Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25 at NRG Park, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
Houston Open Air is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, a producer of some of the biggest rock festivals in America, including LOUDER THAN LIFE, Chicago Open Air, Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville, Monster Energy Fort Rock, Monster Energy AFTERSHOCK, Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion, Monster Energy Rock Allegiance, Rock On The Range and more.
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/.
