The 4th annual Madness on Main festival will return Memorial Day weekend.

Houston’s favorite independent music festival, Madness on Main, is back –  bigger and better – in 2017. The festival, presented by 8th Wonder Brewery, is headed to the near northside, White Oak Music Hall and Raven Tower off N. Main, Sunday May 28th (Memorial Day Weekend). With just one wristband, attendees with have access to three stages, more than 20 bands, and so much more!

Madness on Main serves as a liaison between artists and media to gain interviews and develop artist portfolios. In true “DIY” fashion, the festival does not rely on established acts for headliners, but performers, along with the local art community, comes together to put on a festival specifically targeted for an audience to experience new, emerging acts. This year’s acts include:
