    Free Press Houston and Pegstar.net Presents announced another top-notch lineup for Free Press Summer Festival 2013, which takes place June 1 and 2 at Eleanor Tinsley Park in Houston.

    FPSF 2013 represents a significant benchmark for the nation's most affordable music and arts festival as it welcomes its fifth year of production, featuring all-star musicians, tasty local eats, handcrafted cocktails and near sellout attendance.

    The 2013 headliners include: reunited electropop innovators The Postal Service, punk rock patriarchs Iggy Pop and The Stooges, EDM extraordinaire BASSNECTAR, three-time Grammy-nominated Alabama Shakes, Passion Pit, TV on the Radio, Gypsy-punk heroes Gogol Bordello, singer-songwriter Cat Power, Icelandic folk quartet Of Monsters & Men, punk mavens Social Distortion, British indie rockers Arctic Monkeys, rhythm and blues icon Mavis Staples, legendary Houston rap trio The Ghetto Boys, and many more. Be sure to peep the full lineup below, and check back often for additional announcements in the coming weeks. They might just have a surprise or two to share.

    For its fifth year, FPSF is significantly expanding production efforts with the addition of a third main stage, a refreshing and innovative approach to food---one that will represent the best local eats this city has to offer---and another exciting collaboration with Anvil's Bobby Heugel and his team of fine cocktail-making bandits. This year's festival will also build upon its already growing arts presence with the inclusion of large-scale, interactive artwork that is designed to bring festival goers closer together through fun, hands-on art projects.

    As always, FPSF is said to be the most affordable festival of its kind in the country. This year's festival is dedicated to breakfast tacos. "You have stuck by our side through all the ups and downs and you taste good with cilantro," fest organizers said. Cute! Get all the deets at the FPSF website.
