ROANOKE (WSLS10)-- Saturday marks the final night of Down by Downtown, a three day music festival in the Star City.

The gates officially open to the headliner concert at Elmwood Park at 5:30 p.m. Real Flowers Fake Dirt takes the stage first, followed by OJR at 6:15 and Galactic at 7:15.

Later in the evening, more than a dozen other performances will take place at restaurants and venues throughout Downtown. It's all part of a growing music scene in Roanoke.

"There's just so many styles of music," says Big Lick Entertainment's JD Sutphin. "There are so many things going on, there's education, there's running with the marathon. I feel like we get to show off the city to so many folks while also showing off the things we get to do all the time here as well."

Performances will take place at Awful Arthur's, The Quarter, Blue Five Restaurant, The Spot on Kirk and Martin's Downtown.
