OKLAHOMA CITY –  If you were downtown this weekend, you may have wondered what all the commotion was about.

This year marked the first annual OKC Fest, where thousands came out to hear some of their favorite bands.

The festival had over thirty thousand fans attend over the weekend – coming to see headliners like Dierks Bentley and Lady Antebellum.

Members of the community say the growth of concert events in Oklahoma City is limitless after seeing the outpouring of support this weekend.

Tristan Shull, the Spokesperson for OKC Fest agrees.

“The music community and the music industry here is thriving,” said Shull.

He says because of all of the support the festival received, they plan to hold it annually.

Each year would bring in different headliners and bands.

Alba Weaber, a parent who brought her kids to the concerts today, says the event is entertaining and educational.

“It’s just amazing. We’re providing a cultural experience for our kids now. It’s definitely going to increase the pride that Oklahoma citizens have,” said Weaber.
