Wildflower Festival – Dallas Observer by Jennifer Davis-Lamm

2017 is the 25th anniversary of Richardson’s Wildflower Fest, a quarter century that’s seen the music and arts festival bloom into one of the area’s signature spring events. It’s a local institution, drawing families and music-lovers into Galatyn Park, 2351 Performance Drive, thanks to its strategic calendar positioning, which puts it in that prime summer gateway where outside is still a place you want to be on purpose. It also has a knack for booking acts that play on nostalgic impulses but still sound great. This year’s lineup boasts ’80s new wavers Martha Davis and the Motels, beloved Georgia rockers The B-52s, and ’90s/early-aught mainstays Guster. Bowling for Soup, Shooter Jennings and All-American Rejects make appearances, too; other acts scheduled for the jam-packed three-day festival,which runs between Friday, May 19 and Sunday, May 21, include X Ambassadors, Almost Queen and local party band extraordinaire, Graceland Ninjaz.  Read the full article:  http://www.dallasobserver.com/event/wildflower-festival-9364890
