In a move made to hit back at the multiple rain-outs of the past, outdoor live music event, Free Press Summer Fest, is changing seasons — and names — for 2018.

Organizers announced plans to move the event to March 24-25 and to rename it the In Bloom Music Festival. One thing that will not change is the location: it will still be held at Eleanor Tinsley Park along Buffalo Bayou.

The name change is the result of the music festival combining the efforts of the founders of both Free Press Summer Fest and Austin City Limits Music Festival.
