For six years the festival has provided Norman with the fuel to fire up the Oklahoma music scene and creates a buzz around local and statewide artists.
“Our festival of music and art will highlight the great opportunities that are in Oklahoma,” says Steven White, Norman Music Alliance Chair. “Norman has the perfect balance of talented entrepreneurs and creative thinkers to host a festival like this and grow it to a national phenomenon.”
The three-day festival continues to grow year after year with over 60,000 attending in 2013.
“What better city to represent Oklahoma’s cultural richness then a town teeming with artists and musicians,” says White. “We’re fortunate Norman has embraced this event and we look forward to another successful year.”
Once again, the festival will take place in historic Downtown Main Street, in the 100, 200 and 300 blocks of east Main St., in the Arts District. The festival is free and open to the public.
Organizers are preparing a band lineup and plan to announce the headliners by January. While headliners have not been secured, concertgoers can anticipate a spectacle. Previous headliners include The Joy Formidable, Dirty Projectors, Leon Russell, Electric Six, The Sword, Of Montreal, Polyphonic Spree and the Chainsaw Kittens among others.
Similar to last year, NMF organizers plan to fill nearly 130 spaces on the festival roster by hosting an open call to bands and performers. Specifics for Open Call will be announced in early spring 2014.
