The inaugural Plano Suburbia Music Festival was pretty dang fun, at least according to the faces of every concertgoer we saw over the two-day event. The weekend of May 3-4, 2014 held killer performances from national acts such as Violent Femmes and Alabama Shakes and local favorites like Reverend Horton Heat and Midlake. And all set against a scene of sprawling grassy fields full of lounging or dancing happy Plano (and Dallas and Richardson and Addison and Allen and so on) residents of all ages.
Attendance was probably not what festival organizers had dreamed of, but it was a solid turn-out for the first year. Plus that meant you could walk right up to the stage for almost all of the performances, and there were no long lines for anything.
The weather was sunny, the beer was cold, the music was loud, the crowds were small, and the views of Oak Point Park were stunning. We can’t wait for next year.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Suburbia Music Festival will take a break in 2015, but is planning to return in 2016. Can’t wait!Suburbia Music Festival Website >
