Organizers Call Lubbock Music Festival A Hit

Wet and cold weather didn't stop music lovers from attending the first Lubbock Music Festival.

Organizers called attendance overwhelming. 12,000 fans lined Buddy Holly Avenue Friday night to see the festival's headliner, Pat Green. The former Texas Tech student entertained crowds with his popular Texas Country style. 5,000 turned out the next night to see the Drifters, Coasters and Platters.

"What has happened is ground work has been laid for a festival that could go on and on and the community could come out and support it for many years to come, and ultimately it could be an international music festival," said Don Caldwell with the Lubbock Entertainment Task Force.

The entertainment task force is already planning next year's event. They plan on extending the event to Sunday.
