Re: Houston festivals in Jones or Wortham?
To kinda answer your actual question, there are not a lot of festivals coming to Houston (I live in Houston) right now because of no theme park. A waterpark and a tour of the ship channel (yes, I saw a travel company list that as an attraction) just don't cut it as a student destination. At least not one for a festival to attract enough to bring in the money to rent Jones or Wortham.
Check with the tour companies - especially those based or focused on Texas - to see where they perform. Like others have said, there are nice halls, but getting into the 'prestigious' venues is just not much of an option here.
Anyone know of any music festivals in the Houston area where the groups perform at a venue such as Jones Hall or the Wortham? I frequently took my top band in the DFW area to perform at festivals in the Meyerson, but have been unable to find anything like that in Houston yet.
