A promising spring music and arts festival wont happen until fall organizers announced. The We Are One Music & Arts Festival a multigenre artsmusic weekend show slated for May 14 and 15 at Eleanor Tinsley Park near downtown is now scheduled for November 12 and 13. The festivals president moved the date to ensure the best possible experience for all attendees a press release notes.
Festival headliners included Lil Wayne and his $150000 teeth Lupe Fiasco Illenium Grimes Japanese Breakfast CL Poppy and Duck Sauce. Scheduled performances included Latino dance folk live muralists and a Dollhouse Drag Brunch. Lil Wayne even posted about the festival on Instagram.
Billed as a disruptorcelebrating community diversity and respect We Are One aims to differentiate itself from other multiday music events such as Coachella and Bonnaroo by featuring and showcasing female artists such as Grimes CL Japanese Breakfast Poppy Combo Chimbita Anja Schneider and more.
Since male dominated headliners have become the standard across the music festival industry We Are One Music & Arts Festival is out to change that and pave the way towards inclusivity a show spokesperson tells Culture Map. The festival actively empowers women and plans to feature just as many female headliners as male.
Organizers promise that all tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Since the postponement may force changes to performers schedules the festival will announce any lineup adjustments. Art activations local performers and the Dollhouse Drag Brunch are still on the fall bill. Those interested in new tickets can email ticketing waomusicfest.com. This was an incredibly difficult decision but ultimately we want to put on a memorable event that positively impacts the City of Houston said Moe Haseeb festival president and CEO in a statement. We believe postponing gives us ample time to ensure everyone has a fantastic experience in a safe environment and we cant wait to welcome attendees to a joyous environment and genuinely come together as one!
