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. The Greater Houston Storm Relief Fund was established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner to accept flood relief donations that will stay in the Houston community and aid the victims of the recent storms. 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. Itís 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. Thereís no more important way to do that right now than to support Mayor Turnerís efforts to help Houston recover from this springís flooding and we will be incorporating this message throughout our launch campaign.Ē

Danny Wimmer, Founder, Danny Wimmer Presents, add, ďHouston is one of the countryís 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 Danielís Whiskey Row, we are kicking off a powerhouse experience that will live in the market for many years to come!Ē

In addition to three stages of top rock bands, Houston Open Air features the celebrated Jack Danielís Old No. 7 Whiskey Row, and a Texas-sized Gourmet Man Food experience underscoring Houstonís emergence as a great American food city.

Jack Danielís Old No. 7 Whiskey Row will feature the following brands: Jack Danielís Black Label, Gentleman Jack, Jack Danielís Tennessee Honey, Jack Danielís Tennessee Fire, Old Forester, and Woodford Reserve.

The full Gourmet Man Food lineup and menus for Houston Open Air will be announced soon.

Houston Open Air is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, a producer of some of the biggest rock festivals in America, including LOUDER THAN LIFE, Chicago Open Air, Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville, Monster Energy Fort Rock, Monster Energy AFTERSHOCK, Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion, Monster Energy Rock Allegiance, Rock On The Range and more.

Houston Open Air sponsors include: Monster Energy, Jack Danielís, El Jimador, Fxck Cancerís Dyin2Live, NRG Park and SoHo Concessions, with more to be announced.

NRG Park, home of the NFL's Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, is located at One NRG Park in Houston, TX.
