Spotlight: Houston Open Air: Music,Whiskey,Craft Beer & Gourmet Man Food !

After a record breaking weekend in Florida—including more than 50,000 at a sold out Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville in Jacksonville and over 23,000 at Monster Energy Fort Rock in Fort Myers -Danny Wimmer Presents has announced the first annual Houston Open Air music, whiskey, craft beer and Gourmet Man Food festival debuting Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25 at NRG Park, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Houston Open Air is the brainchild of Danny Wimmer Presents, a Los Angeles promotion/production company determined to change the festival landscape - and they’re succeeding. DWP is a producer of some of the biggest rock festivals in America, including Aftershock, Rock On The Range, Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville, Monster Energy Fort Rock, Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion, Louder Than Life and beyond. Their partnership with concert giant AEG has curated the World’s Loudest Month festival series, spanning 8 festivals and half a million rock fans across five consecutive weekends in April/May.
“We’re excited to bring a new rock festival to Houston," explains Danny Wimmer of the drive for Houston Open Air. "I have been looking at Houston for years. The market has all the elements needed for a unique destination festival: a strong rock community, a vibrant food scene, and a love of great whiskey and craft beer. We’re looking forward to bringing the Houston market a full festival experience with top rock bands, showing the rest of the country all that Houston has to offer, and helping to showcase some of the reasons that the Washington Post named Houston as one of the Top 5 food cities in America.”

Given the devastation caused by the recent flooding, Houston Open Air festival organizers are in talks with the Houston Mayor’s Office to highlight local disaster relief efforts and fundraising as well. Details of this program will be announced along with the lineups. In the meantime, they encourage people to donate to HoustonRecovers.org.

The full list of Houston Open Air music, whiskey, craft beer and artist-inspired beverages, as well as the Gourmet Man Food lineup, will be revealed on Monday, May 16 at Noon CDT with early bird festival ticket discounts available Tuesday, May 17 at Noon CDT via the Houston Open Air website.

Hotel discounts are available now via the Curadora link at www.HoustonOpenAir.com.

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped. Eventually, however the group parted ways. I put the microphone down and started promoting other artists.
