With the dying off of the traveling rock and metal music festivals over the last couple years we are seeing a emergence of the more localized, one time events popping up all across the country. These festivals are attracting bigger and bigger names and rekindling a flame that was lost during the traveling fest epidemic. The First Ever Houston Open Air is off the charts solid from top to bottom.

In light of the recent flooding in the Houston area, a portion of the proceeds from all Houston Open Air tickets sold will benefit the Greater Houston Storm Relief Fund. The Greater Houston Storm Relief Fund was established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner to accept flood relief donations that will stay in the Houston community and aid the victims of the recent storms. To donate or learn more, visit www.houstonrecovers.org.

Danny Hayes, CEO, Danny Wimmer Presents says, “Houston Open Air has been in the works for almost a year now. It’s awkward to announce a major music festival in a city that has experienced such recent hardship and, in fact, we delayed our announcements out of respect for what Houston has endured. But at the same time, our festivals are about highlighting the strengths (or sometimes the needs) of our host city. There’s no more important way to do that right now than to support Mayor Turner’s efforts to help Houston recover from this spring’s flooding and we will be incorporating this message throughout our launch campaign.”

Danny Wimmer, Founder, Danny Wimmer Presents, add, “Houston is one of the country’s biggest rock markets and, when combined with the impressive food scene happening here, it’s a natural location for a DWP festival. We’re thrilled to have such a diverse first-year lineup that includes Avenged SevenfoldAlice In Chains and Chevelle. With the inclusion of an incredible food experience and the Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Row, we are kicking off a powerhouse experience that will live in the market for many years to come!”

In addition to three stages of top rock bands, Houston Open Air features the celebrated Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Whiskey Row, and a Texas-sized Gourmet Man Food experience underscoring Houston’s emergence as a great American food city.

Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Whiskey Row will feature the following brands: Jack Daniel’s Black LabelGentleman JackJack Daniel’s Tennessee HoneyJack Daniel’s Tennessee FireOld Forester, and Woodford Reserve.

The full Gourmet Man Food lineup and menus for Houston Open Air will be announced soon.
