A few weeks ago, a brand new festival was announced for our fair city of Houston. Taking place on October 30th in Houston’s Tom Bass Park, the first ever Ghoulsfest is sure to be a good time. Promising “the most diverse in a one day event,” the festival is set to feature headlining sets from legendary hardcore band Bad Brains, indie-rockers We Are Scientists and pop-soul singer Macy Gray. Also featured during this all day, outdoor event are DJ sets from both Hot Chip, Fischerspooner and Peanut Butter Wolf, as well as a host of Texas’ best including Daniel Johnston, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead and Girl In A Coma. As always, a strong contingent of Houston artist are being represented in form of Fat Tony, Roky Moon & Bolt, Tax The Wolf and several others.
There also seems to be more additions on the way, with one major rumor about an additional headliner – that being Big Boi of Outkast fame. It sure seems to be true, and has been reported by reputable news sources, but really who knows?! Hopefully for Houston’s sake, it is.
Check out the full line-up for the inaugural Ghoulsfest after the jump.
