Second North Oak Cliff Music Festival brings bigger names to Dallas
Tickets jump to $50 on the day of the event.
OAK CLIFF For the second year, Oak Cliff folks are hosting the neighborhood-friendly North Oak Cliff Music Festival. But this year's fest on November 2 has the potential to be bigger than last year's.
The musical lineup includes Austin pop/rock artist Bob Schneider; longtime Dallas gospel band The Relatives; Austin rock group The Band of Heathens; and Denton folksters Seryn. And there's plenty more: See the full lineup here.
The North Oak Cliff Music Festival takes place at Lake Cliff Park. It's kid-friendly and pet-friendly. Parking is free and coolers of food and non-alcoholic drinks are allowed. Bring blankets to sit on.
Tickets cost $25 until October 4; then $35; day-of tickets are $50. It's considerably pricier than last year's event, which cost $12 in advance or $20 at the door.
- Lake Cliff Park
1200 North Zang Boulevard
- Age limit: All ages $35 - $50
Texas Rangers broadcaster Eric Nadel will emcee the event, which runs from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. November 2.
Oak Cliff was home to the late Stevie Ray Vaughan, but its musical roots extend farther than that: R&B singer Erykah Badu is from there, as is Edie Brickell. It makes sense to host a music festival in such a musical neighborhood.
