On Wednesday, The Free Press Summer Festival announced their 2017 lineup for its ninth annual fest.

Kicking off the highly diverse lineup for the June 3-4 festival are Lorde, Solange, Flume, G-Eazy, Cage the Elephant, The Shins and Tove Lo.

Houston's FSPF, named after the local independent publication, is going down two days at Eleanor Tinsley Park in downtown Houston.

Houston's own Solange, a critical darling, recently played the Super Bowl Live stage in downtown in front of a massive crowd. Her latest effort, "A Seat at the Table," was hailed as one of 2016's best albums and earned her a Grammy on Sunday for Best R&B Performance for the son "Cranes in the Sky."

Over 55 artists will perform on four stages, including Carnage, Post Malone, Lil Uzi Vert, Jon Bellion, Jauz, Grouplove, Milky Chance, DVBBS, Portugal. The Man, Big K.R.I.T., Charli XCX, The Strumbellas and many more.

The full lineup is heavy on dance, hip-hop, and indie-rock and currently up on the FPSF site in full.

FPSF debuted back in August 2009 and over the years has grown into an annual Houston tradition, bringing in diverse acts such as Willie Nelson, the Flaming Lips, Iggy and the Stooges, Jack White, Diplo, St. Vincent and Alabama Shakes over the years.
