The 2014 North Oak Cliff Music Festival already was shaping up to be a big deal, but now organizers have really made it a must-attend with the addition of Edie Brickell & New Bohemians as headliners.

The festival, taking place on Saturday, October 25, at Lake Cliff Park, will also feature performances from Meiko, Seryn, Kat Edmonson, South Dallas Funk Revue, David Garza Trio, Fox and the Bird, Emily Elbert, and more.

Edie Brickell & New Bohemians are Dallas originals, starting in the mid-'80s and becoming a fixture in Deep Ellum. They became known nationally with their 1988 album Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars, which featured the hit "What I Am."

The band has only released four albums in its history, including 2006's Stranger Things. Brickell has had success as a solo artist and a collaborator with other groups, including a recent high-profile venture with Steve Martin on the bluegrass album Love Has Come For You. The two, along with Martin's band, the Steep Canyon Rangers, played at Winspear Opera House on August 1.
