With Ra Ra Riot and Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires as the headliners for Norman Music Festival 8, the festival is adding Natalie Prass, Nadastrom, Grooms, Son of Stan and several local acts to the official lineup for the festival on April 23-25.
Natalie Prass and her soulful, vintage sound debuted a self-titled album with Spacebomb Records from Richmond, VA. Her stop at the Norman Music Festival is in the midst of her tour with Ryan Adams. Prass is performing on the Main Stage along with Johnny Polygon, Grooms, Native Lights, Son of Stan and local acts Elms and Bowlsey.
Nadastrom, a two-piece of producers Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom, are headlining the new EDM and hip-hop stage on Saturday sponsored by Bacardi. They will be accompanied by Crystal Vision, made up of Katie Wicks and Bryan Peace, and Emmy Award winner Jabee Williams. More acts on this stage will be announced soon.
The historic Sooner Theatre will host a lineup filled with strong local talent Friday night. Horse Thief headlines the showcase with Pageantry, Idabel, Moongiant and Aaron Pierce.
Also on Friday night, the Oklahoma Blues Society Stage will feature Steve Coleman & Powerhouse, Old #5’s, Flatland Band and Kristine Jude.
Since it was created in 2008, Norman Music Festival’s goal has been to highlight “Free. Original. Oklahoma.” What started as a one-day festival has now grown and expanded to a three-day festival with over 300 artists in downtown Norman and over 70,000 people in attendance at Norman Music Festival 7.
