Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25 –
The list of unbelievable talent that will be at this year’s Center of the Universe Festival in Tulsa makes spending $80 for a general admission weekend pass or $50 for single day admission well worth it. For two days, the Brady Arts District turns into a music haven with more than 100 artists sprawled across outdoor stages and inside downtown venues, and a festival wristband gets concert-goers in front of every stage and every artist. In addition to a talented musical lineup, this year’s festival has a newfound focus that offers a well rounded arts experience. Jam in the Van, presented by the Woody Guthrie Center, and Incendia are two new features festivalgoers can experience. Jam in the Van is the world’s first solar-powered interactive music discovery vehicle – a mobile studio that allows fans to watch and listen to a band’s live studio session. Incendia combines design, art and science to create a cool, unique experience. During the day, the three 20-foot domes offer a cool mist from all angles to help fans fend off the summer heat. At night, they come to life with fiery displays. The domes will be located on Cameron Street, north of the Bank of Oklahoma Stage at Guthrie Green. The after-parties will feature performers that include hula hoopers, jugglers, stilt walkers and dancers, all of which will perform and interact with fans throughout the night.
