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.

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 Sevenfold, Alice 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 Label, Gentleman Jack, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire, Old Forester, and Woodford Reserve.
 
The full Gourmet Man Food lineup and menus for Houston Open Air will be announced soon.

This new, cause-driven makeup initiative, founded by renowned makeup artist and product developer, Kristen Therese Leonard, was created to ensure that women’s rights continue to be given their share of voice in our country’s future.

Beautiful Rights will promote women’s rights by donating 20% of all sales (not profits) to organizations that support our causes, such as Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, Emily’s List, Lambda Legal and Legal Momentum. The 20% contribution is set as a reminder of the fact that women in the U.S. still get paid 20% less than men for doing the same work.
