HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The lineup for Free Press Summer Festival 2015 has just been announced, and the demand for tickets was so hot, the website crashed.

This year's lineup include Skrillex, R. Kelly, Weezer, Steve Angello, Major Lazer, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals, St. Vincent, The Decemberists, Belle and Sebastian, Mastodon, Flume, Chance the Rapper, Tears for Fears, Band of Horses, Welcome to Houston, Gary Clark Jr., Charli XCX, Flogging Molly, G-Eazy, RL Grime, Brandi Carlile, Odesza, Future Islands and Tove Lo.

Tickets for the June 6 and 7 event went on sale at 10am Wednesday, and that's when fpsf.com went down for at least 20 minutes. While the cheapest tickets cost $57, the only general admission tickets still available for purchase cost more than $100 more, at $158.50.

Free Press Summer Festival is held annually at Eleanor Tinsley Park, 500 Allen Parkway Village.
