The Maha Music Festival made its big return Saturday.
After six years, it was bigger than ever. Organizers believe nearly 7,000 people were there. That's about a 40% increase compared to last year.
Music was in the air at Aksarben Village with 12 bands in the lineup, including headliner, Death Cab For Cutie.
Organizers say it was those bands, the nice weather, and the obvious need for the festival that keeps it growing strong every year. “This is what we would call community building. This is something we thought the community needed. We thought it would be fun to do. It's become a labor of love. There's 250 volunteers that go into putting this on, this show, and you get a lot of positive feedback. It creates a lot of energy and excitement," says Tre Brashear, one organizer.
The festival began at noon, and lasted until midnight.
