Music to our ears, the entertainment lineup for the 2017 Free Press Summer Fest was announced on Wednesday.

This year’s two-day festival boasts 55 renowned and up-and-coming artists on four stages with headliners including: New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde, rapper G-Eazy, and indie rock band The Shins. The lineup also includes a number of 2017 Grammy Award winners including dance/electronic band Flume, rock band Cage the Elephant, and Houston's own Solange, who recently dazzled crowds at Super Bowl LIVE.

The event shines the spotlight on several more bands with Houston roots, from three-piece exotic-jazz group Khruangbin to indie-pop quartet Rose Ette and synth-pop duo Night Drive.

Festival goers can also catch performances by Canadian rock band The Strumbellas, six-piece soul band St. Paul & The Broken Bones, indie rock band Grouplove, Dallas-born rapper Post Malone, German folk group Milky Chance, and more.

Now in its ninth year, the event should take place June 3 and June 4 at Eleanor Tinsley Park, but heavy storms forced both the 2015 and 2016 editions to relocate to NRG Park.  

Tickets ($148 for a two-day general admission pass; $250 for a two-day VIP pass) are on sale now on the Free Press Summer Fest website.
