Some fests, particularly the EDM ones, are 21+ so there aren't going to be too many college kids anyway. Lollapalooza is in August when Chicago gets pretty hot and humid as well yet people go. I was at a festival last weekend and it was 100 degrees. The hottest one I've ever been at. They passed out free water, had misters spread around, and every other person had a camelpack. You get through it. I honestly think the heat is used as a big excuse in Houston because it's not the only hot and humid city with events.

For Travis Scott, the thrilling ride of Astroworld has just begun. After decimating the competition with a staggering 450,000 equivalent album sales during his opening week, Scott kept his foot on the gas and announced his brand new festival Astroworld on Friday.

The inaugural festival will take place in Scott's hometown of Houston, TX on Nov. 17. To keep the Astroworld theme intact, Scott will perform at NRG park, which is right across the street from the famed amusement park.

Do you want to hear music or participate in a giant unruly crowd group grope?

Houston has all kinds of places to hear music if you want to hear music that is not top 40.

Check out any Thursday Chronicle

McGonigel's Mucky Duck
Dosey Doe
House of blues
That place the recently opened outside where the people in the Heights are raising hell due to noise. It's close to some park by the bayou
Main Street Crossing in Tomball has a better lineup than Dosey Doe lately.

If I ever move again it will be next door to Mucky Duck or Main Street Crossing

If you like the old 80's retro rock scene, there is Rooftop Pub which is located downtown Houston Bar Patio - Proof Rooftop Lounge
They always have good bands and DJs. The DJs usually play on Fridays and Saturdays if that's your scene. Click on the events link to see the line up.

Festivals are normally about higher level bands compared to those that play at pubs.

I know. I go there once in a while.
But still... Houston is lacking festival scene. Here each year we need a couple of festivals on a level of Bonnaroo or Firefly
