Planners hope success in the Brady Arts District will continue this summer with the new Center of the Universe Festival, happening July 19th and 20th.
The festival will feature around 70 bands at various locations in the district.
Organizer Chris Lieberman says big acts will be on stages at Guthrie Green and outside Cain’s Ballroom, with smaller ones inside local venues.
Headliners will include OneRepublic and Neon Trees. Regional emerging bands can apply to perform on the smaller stages. The deadline to apply to perform is June 10th.
Lieberman said that with the successes in the Brady District, he and co-organizer Phil Kaiser felt the time was right for a new attempt at a major music festival in Tulsa.
A large-scale Oklahoma music festival, DFest, which was held in the Blue Dome District, was cancelled in 2010.
Entrance to the Center of the Universe Music Festival is free, with VIP and Preferred passes available for purchase.
