  • Stacey Lovett
Ahhhhh, Oyster Bake. The beloved part of Fiesta that lets you relive your late ’90s and early-aughts guilty pleasures. Like when rap/rockers P.O.D. played last year or Tool-influenced, alt-rockers Chevelle rocked a set the year prior.

Organizers behind the event announced the first round of artists including H-Town rapper Mike Jones, nu-metal bros Drowning Pool, “Father of Mine” singers Everclear, as well as Cumbia living legend Fito Olivares and a slew of local bands and artists like latin-jazz outfit Volcán and conscious-rap heavy-hitters Third Root.

Kicking off at noon on Friday, April 20 (4/20, heh), the first show starts at 5pm and ends Saturday, April 21 with a fireworks show to light up at 10:30pm.

Here’s the lineup so far:

Lou Gramm, Mike Jones, Roger Creater, Kevin Fowler, Fito Olivares, Jimmy Gonzalez Y Grupo Mazz, Everclear, Tom Keifer of Cinderella, Drowning Pool, Bidi Bidi Banda, Volcán, Third Root, Back in Black (AC/DC tribute), Vic Vaga (Rod Stewart tribute), Whiskey Bliss, Maddie & Tae, Tucker Beathard, Cory Morrow, Clay Hollis Band, Vanessa Lynn Bird, Mario Flores & The Soda Creek Band, La Tropa F, Desigual, Isabel Marie, Raulito Navaira Y Remedy, King Kyle Lee, Gabby Annalyse, DJ Ultrasonic & DJ Robbie Rob, Miss Gunfire, Rockwave.
