PLANO — With more than two dozen acts set to take the stage in Plano this weekend, the inaugural Suburbia Music Festival is ready to rock the suburbs of Dallas and Fort Worth.

The acts will play on three stages and are sure to draw a lot of music fans. City officials say they expect a big crowd and some traffic tie-ups.

Along with Alabama Shakes, J. Cole, Tegan and Sara, DJ David Guetta is one of the big names performing. They'll play Saturday and Sunday in Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve, where crews were putting the final touches on the main stage Thursday and Friday.

By the time the gates open at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, the park will be full of vendors, kids will have an area to play and there will be plenty of room for concert goers to stake out their spots in the grass. The City of Plano is thrilled to play host.

"Big cities do big things and so we have so many different acts that will attract a diversity of ages cultures and music lovers," said Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere.

"It’s fun to have this kind of event in Plano for our residents and the community, and it’s a great park," said Amy Fortenberry, with Plano Parks and Recreation.

Tickets are still available. You can buy a one day pas for $97.50. If you want to check out both days, it'll cost you $119.50. If you're planning on bringing the family, kids under 10 are free.

There are already some road closures near the park. Part of Los Rios closed Thursday and will stay closed through Monday night. A section of Spring Creek Parkway will close from Saturday morning through late Sunday night, after the final act takes the stage.

As far as parking goes, there are some specific lots that will cost you $20 dollars a day. For more info, visit Suburbia Music Festival's website.
