First Round of Headliners Announced for NMFX!
Norman Music Festival continues to bring national acts to the heart of downtown Norman.
For NMFX, garage rock band Thee Oh Sees and hip-hop Oddisee & Good Compny are the main headliners to cap the decade for the free festival on April 27, 28 and 29.
Other bands coming to Norman include:
• Texas Americana act Israel Nash
• high-energy Philadelphia rockers Low Cut Connie
• Wisconsin electronic-pop band GGOOLLDD
• the wild live show of Oklahoma City’s DEERPEOPLE
• Oklahoma City Latin rock band Lincka
• Tulsa grunge and sunshine-pop band The Daddyos
Thee Oh Sees are coming in from San Francisco to Oklahoma for the first time in almost five years. The band released their 17th album A Weird Exits in August earlier this year through Castle Face Records. Before the end of the year, they will be releasing a companion album, An Odd Extrances.
Oddisee is a rapper of Sudanese and African American background from Washington, DC. The influences from his parents’ heritages and hip-hop from his cousins is prominent throughout his music. The Odd Tape is his latest piece released in May 2016.
Alternative country artist Israel Nash is headlining the stage at the Depot during the festival. Originally from Missouri, Nash moved to New York where he started his music career. Since then, he has been in heavy rotation with NPR and has been featured in World Café.
More bands will be announced in the coming months.
Starting today, the open-call is now live. Last year, over 700 bands applied to be part of the event. The application will be available until December 15, 2016 at midnight.
The mission of the Norman Music Alliance is to help develop the arts community in Oklahoma through support of local original artists, support of music fans, support of art education and support of local businesses. What started as a one-day festival has now grown and expanded to a three-day festival with over 350 artists in Norman and over 100,000 people in attendance at Norman Music Festival 9.
