J. Cole, David Guetta Headline Inaugural Suburbia Music Festival



You can add another new festival to this year’s line-up of music festivals and this one is in Texas. Plano will host the inaugural Suburbia Music Festival, which will take place May 3 and 4 at Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve and organized by Live Nation.

Top acts for the two-day event include DJ/EDM producer David Guetta, roots rock ‘n’ soul band Alabama Shakes and hip-hop star J. Cole. The festival will boasts local Texas artists, including R&B crooner SoMo and teen hip hop group Yung Nation.

Live Nation expects about 20,000 people to attend this year. The goal is to grow that number to 70,000 in future years.

“We fully believe that this will be an event that will grow organically over time,” said Danny Eaton, a senior vice president at Live Nation. “It will be something that will be here for decades and decades to come.”

Tickets go on sale Jan. 25 at 10 a.m. Central time through the Live Nation website and mobile app, but presale begins Friday for Live Nation subscribers and other VIPs. Presale prices are $79.50. Other prices have not been set.
