OXFORD, Maine — Music lovers of all ages packed the Oxford Fairgrounds for the Nateva Music and Camping Festival as temperatures climbed into the 80s under a cloudless blue sky.

Many of Saturday’s festival-goers camped overnight for Sunday’s wind-up acts. The festival started Friday.

The event has been called the biggest of its kind since the Grateful Dead played at Oxford Plains Speedway in July 1988.
