First-ever Suburbia Music Festival in Plano attracts big-name acts

Posted: Updated:

Music lovers normally flock to Austin for festivals like SXSW and Austin City Limits.

Now, North Texas is finally getting a massive music festival of its own, and the set list is noteworthy.

The City of Plano teamed up with the world's largest concert promoter, Live Nation, for the first-ever Suburbia Music Festival at Oak Point Park.

Headliners include Alabama Shakes, electronic dance music phenom David Guetta and rapper J-Cole.

Other acts include Third Eye Blind, the Violent Femmes and Blue October.

More than 220,000 people go to Austin City Limit's three-day festival.

In 2011, it raked in $106 million. 

City officials plan for the same type of economic boost.

Two-day presale tickets go on sale Friday morning through Ticketmaster, and publicly on Jan. 25.

The starting price is just under $80.

The festival is scheduled for the first weekend in May.
