Although Austin is dubbed, ‘The Live Music Capital of the World,’ Dallas-Fort Worth is in hot pursuit to make the Metroplex one of the go-to places for music. 

Smack in the middle of North Texas, Plano is set to host its first-ever Suburbia Music Festival on May 3 and 4. While rumors surfaced around the water cooler about which musical acts will take the stage, the lineup for the festival was recently announced.

“The enthusiasm for Suburbia is off the charts here at Live Nation. We believe that North Texas has been in need of a major music festival for many years and we firmly believe that Suburbia will be the vehicle to become an annual event for decades to come," says Danny Eaton, Live Nation's Senior Vice President, North American Concerts.

He continues, "We also want to thank the City of Plano for offering us this opportunity to showcase the beautiful acreage known as Oak Point Park to stage Suburbia. Suburbia is destined to become the premiere music festival of all time in the North Texas area.” 

The range of boldface names gracing Suburbia Music Festival are anything sort of impressive, including Violent Femmes, Third Eye Blind, Alabama Shakes, Tegan and Sara, David Guetta, J. Cole, the Dandy Warhols and many more.

So far, Suburbia Music Festival has announced 40 acts, with more to come in the foreseeable future. A list of full line up can be viewed on the Suburbia Music Festival site. 

The Suburbia Music Festival will take place at Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve in Plano, which also hosts the annual Plano Balloon Festival. While the festival will not take place on the same grounds as the balloon festival, there is set to be massive space for the event. The festival will be located at 5901 Los Rios Blvd., Plano.

“The City of Plano defines excellence. What began as a premier suburb of Dallas has become a diverse, international and emerging urban city," says City of Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere.

He adds, "The addition of this signature cultural event, Suburbia Music Festival, which includes Grammy Award-winning, multi- platinum selling musical artists in a unique outdoor setting, is a key piece of our vision of a multi-faceted city that provides high quality opportunities to live work and play here. We are extremely excited to be partnering with Live Nation to bring this first of its kind festival to Plano.” 

Tickets for the festival officially go on sale Saturday, Jan. 25, but a pre-sale for two-day festival tickets begins Friday, Jan. 17 starting at $79.50 through Ticketmaster. Additionally, Groupon is currently offering a deal where pre-sale for two-day tickets costs almost half of the early bird special price.
