PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - A festival celebrating live music and barbecue is being held at the site of a new private playground for car enthusiasts in suburban Detroit.

Michigan Rib Fest takes place Friday through Monday at the M1 Concourse in Pontiac.

The project’s $25 million first phase involved construction of a 1.5-mile track and dozens of car condos, which are climate-controlled garages that can double as entertainment rooms. Buyers can’t live in the condos, but they can sleep over on occasion.

The festival is billed as M1 Concourse’s first large-scale public event. Use of the track at the former General Motors factory will generally be reserved for condo owners and their guests.
