Norman Music Festival 2009

This past Saturday, the Norman Music Festival took place. It is a free all day concert, where Main Street of Norman is shut down and bands come out from all over the country to play. Its incredible! And my work, the Norman Arts Council, puts it on. I worked from 8:30am until 12:30am - a completely exhuasting but fun day. Last year was the first year this event ever took place and we drew about 15,000 people total. This year, with 90 bands playing on 12 different stages scattered throughout the street, we drew close to 30,000 people. It was amazing! We had bands come from L.A, San Fran, Georgia, and a bunch of local bands that were able to get face time with press and with new fans. The picture above was the Main Stage where headlines such as Starlight Mints and Of Montreal played. It was an incredible show!
This is just a small shot of the crowd around 9pm. People were dressed in the craziest things. There was one guy in a chicken suite!

We had performers all day long, flame throwers, dancers, and this band of drum players. They were awesome.

This is my All Access pass.:) Which meant I could have access to any backstage or VIP area. My job was to check the bands in and out. It was so cool getting to meet all of them. If you want to check out the website, its We even have our own Pandora station!
