With great music and the awesome festival atmosphere, there’s a lot to love about the Norman Music Festival. And with the people and shows, it’s easy to miss a few things.

Here are the Top 5 Things You Don’t Want to Miss at the Norman Music Festival 2018

1. Local Foodies – As the music festival has grown, so has the food scene. You’ll be able to sample the best of local fare as you jam along with your new favorite band.

2. The Cost – The Norman Music Festival is a free event. That’s right – no tickets, no covers. Just a city full of people enjoying great music together. This event is made possible by the Norman Music Alliance Inc Nonprofit and a worker base that is 100% volunteers.

3. Dust Bowl Market – Local vendors and artisans create an amazing outdoor market during the music festival. You can find one-of-a-kind and handmade items. From jewelry to home-decor, the vendors in the Dust Bowl are as unique as the bands.

4. Twenty Stages – With twenty different stages, you will find music from all kinds of genres – slam poetry, country-fried rock, indie rock, punk, alternative rock, and more. Whether you make it to every stage or find one you like and camp there, you won’t be disappointed in the music that you hear. Be sure to check the full schedule, especially if you’re looking for a specific band.

5. VIP Status – If you love being front and center to the main stage, getting to rub elbows with the bands in the hospitality area, having exclusive t-shirts, and a fancy-pants VIP lanyard and pass, then you’ll want to join the Sustaining Base. These VIP members have the “in” for NMF.

The Norman Music Festival in 2018 is sure to be the best event yet.
