Norman Music Fest has taken to Twitter with comedy to highlight what would have been the original weekend of the festival.
The festival has been postponed to Aug. 27-29 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the festival's official statement.
The person behind the festival’s account tweeted on April 23 — the original starting date of the festival — that they felt like “there was something I was supposed to do today” followed by a playlist of past Norman Music Festival performers.
