Organizers for the first annual downtown outdoor music festival, OKCFest said, they are pleased with the turnout for the 4-day festival in downtown Oklahoma City.

"We are beyond thrilled with our city's incredible response to the inaugural OKCFest," Founder Fred Hall said. "The bar was high and we cleared it. OKCFest is building the foundation for a world-class event. The festival is a testament to how far the music industry in our city has come and how far it can go.
