    All as Brad mentioned, its going to be quite difficult for our large group to meet. Besides that we have different acts we want to see and some of us have Fancy Pants tickets which means a separate seating area. With that being said, I'm still willing to try and meet as many members as I can. Although the service is delayed, please feel free to text me...I plan on being there ALL DAY!!

    May 31, 2013

    • Brittney

      By delayed I mean last year someone would text me and I wouldnt get it until 10 minutes later...

      May 31, 2013

    • Christine L.

      Yeah service was bad last time. I'd like to try to meet at the beginning if possible

      If you really want to go, there are tickets to be found elsewhere on the internet, I guarantee. Craigslist is a good place to start.

      May 27, 2013

      Def Craigslist...I'm buying 2 for a friend from someone on Craigslist...

    I am excited about a few of the bands on this line up...but mostly I can't believe I've lived in houston so long and have never seen Scarface or the Geto boys!

      I'm kinda amped for the Quad City Djs!! #throwback

      May 28, 2013

  • Brittney

    Also, you def want to pay attention to the "What to Bring/What not to Bring" section of the website. Sunscreen, blankets to sit, sunglasses, cash are a MUST!! No pets, coolers, chairs or outside liquor :-( http://fpsf.com/go.php#general_info

  • Brad F.

    Brittney is hosting this year so hopefully she will set a place and time for a group to meet. But I feel like there are to many of us going and to many stages for one big group. I have uploaded the schedule that I will loosely stick to. If that is close to what you were going for or you would like to just hit a few of those stages then feel free to text me. I'll have my cell with me (fyi. reception sucked out there last year)[masked]

    May 28, 2013

  • Brittney

    Hi everyone!! I'm planning to arrive when the gates open on Saturday. The first act that I want to see isn't until 3 so if anyone wants to meet let me know. My number is[masked]-0979. Last year between shows I sat on the big hill near the main stage, so that's a potential meeting point/base...

      If we get temps in the low 90's with middling humidity, count it as a blessing. I couldn't believe people were complaining about the weather last year after it hit 105 degrees two years ago!

      May 27, 2013

  • Mac K

    um yea its kinda a big deal! hope your there.

    May 27, 2013

  • Brad F.

    Ok. The actual schedule has been released and, being the nerd that I am, I have plugged it all into a spreadsheet so that I can see what bands I want to see and where the time conflicts are. If anyone wants to join in my nerdy-ness and use my spreadsheet send me an email and I'll forward it to ya. [masked]
