Regardless of weather, Larrea said that Deerpeople chose carefully when and where they played, and for his group, the later, the better. He said Deerpeople had an opportunity to play the Main Stage during the day, but historically, the Stillwater band's gigs always resonate more after dark.

“In the middle of the day on the Main Stage, it's big, it's huge and it sounds great,” said Larrea, who was also planning to play a nearby house party with Deerpeople on Saturday night after headliner The Joy Formidable finishes their set. “But we like to catch people in the middle of their night, right in the swing of it, when everyone's getting riled up.”

Whether or not Norman Music Festival is impacted by storms, Morisse said he will be in the thick of it.

“All weekend is like Christmas — you're going to have fun no matter what,” Morisse said.
