Nine Festers enjoy the sun and music, without the mud

It was fest weekend in Athens County for sure – or correct that, music fest weekend. Nine Fest took place just west of Athens on Saturday, attracting thousands of Ohio University students and other music fans, while to the north, the eighth annual Nelsonville Music Festival also attracted large crowds for its second official day.

Nine Fest reportedly went off without much of a hitch, and notably without the trademark sea of mud that's plagued – or added character, depending on your outlook – the so-called "number-fests" in recent years.

Nine Fest did have some underage drinking arrests, and some people treated by paramedics for dehydration and other minor issues. The Athens NEWS will have a more extensive report in Monday's print edition and online.
