NORMAN — Retro rock singer/songwriter JD McPherson, who hails from Broken Arrow, and alt-pop/rock band The Joy Formidable, which started in North Wales and is now based in London, will headline the sixth annual Norman Music Festival, organizers said Tuesday.
Norman Music Festival 6 is set for April 25-27 in the Arts District, extending from the 300 block of E Main Street to the railroad tracks.
“The festival has lined up some incredible bands and we can't wait to share them with the public,” said festival chairman Kent Johnson in a news release.
On April 27, downtown Norman will transform into one of the nation's largest music festivals. To accommodate the festival's growing audience, the Main Stage will be at Main Street and Porter.
Among the Main Stage performers will be Big Sam's Funky Nation, King Khan & BBQ Show, Defining Times, Mike Dillon, Josh Sallee, The Grown-Ups and Feathered Rabbit.
The Norman Music Festival's Jack Daniels Stage will feature McPherson as well as Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights, Elephant Revival, The O's, Samantha Crain, Beau Jennings & the Tigers and Kyle Reid.
A full list of bands performing at the festival will be available in April.
The mission of the Norman Music Alliance is to promote live events for Norman and the surrounding area that celebrates original music of many genres produced by local, regional and national musicians.
The festival's event team is looking for volunteers to help out with many areas of the festival before, during and after the event.
