Hip Hop legends Wu-Tang Clan join Rocker Jack White and Country music pioneer Dwight Yoakam atop the lineup for this year's Houston Free Press Summer Fest, set for May 31 to June 1. As the two-day music festival gears up for its third year, festival-goers are in for what promises to be an even bigger and better event.

With a sold out crowd of 100,000 last year, the festival shows no signs of scaling back. In fact, 160 heavy hitting national headliners and local acts spanning eight stages is just the beginning.

Renovations to Buffalo Bayou's Eleanor Tinsley Park , where the festival takes place, are slated for completion prior to Lauren Hill, the Deftones and Vampire Weekend taking the stage (eight stages to be specific).

Already deemed one of the nation's 10 great public spaces, Buffalo Bayou is undergoing a major makeover which includes a $2 million improvement of Eleanor Tinsley Park. The event meadow will soon be transformed to include a signature lawn and a new open-air pavilion. Improvements also include upgraded infrastructure for special events like Free Press Summer Fest, a trail providing a direct connection to Sabine Promenade for cyclists, joggers and event attendees, upgraded landscaping, redesigned parking spaces, and an improved garden area.

If two-days of non-stop music isn't enough, Houston boasts an array of bars, clubs and music halls that have long provided a springboard for a wide range of musicians. After all, this is where Lyle Lovett and even ZZ Top got their start, bringing unique rhythm to a city with a storied musical history. Here is a roundup of suggestions for visitors seeking to make the most of their festival experience while also discovering the best of what Houston has to offer.
