There was something for every music lover at the VEX Fest in downtown Youngstown.

The free festival included many genres of music like folk rock, fiddles, blues, reggae, funk and much more.

Bands played on two stages, one outside in the streets, and the other inside Warehouse 50.

Organizers said this was a great way to hear all the diverse tunes that make up the Youngstown area music scene.

“We have a very eclectic group of bands to showcase what the city has to offer musically, get people out to find out to find new bands,” said Hoss Jarman.

Music will be playing on the outside stage until 11:30 p.m. Sunday, and continues until 2 a.m. inside Warehouse 50.

This was the ninth year for VEX fest.
