Hundreds of Mission music fans crowded into Centennial Park on Saturday to attend the MNET Radio Music Festival.

The free event featured eight local bands and the music played non-stop for 10 hours.

Almost all of the musicians who appeared have ties to Mission. Some are current residents and some formerly lived in Mission.

The artists who performed included:

  • Sain Arden
  • Corey Primus
  • Midnight Lion
  • Hastings
  • Jeff Lacey and the Blackbirds band
  • KicnRox
  • The Harvest and
