Friday, July 25-Saturday, July 26
If you didn’t visit the inaugural Center of the Universe Festival in the Brady Arts District last year, you probably kicked yourself for missing what became one of Tulsa’s biggest music events of the year. Headlining bands OneRepublic, OK Go and Neon Trees were just the tip of a promising iceberg of relief from the entertainment lull of a scorching July weekend in Oklahoma, and the anticipated 40,000 spectators turned into more than 80,000 in actual attendance. Yielding infinite promise, the 2014 Center of the Universe Festival brings AWOLNATION, Fitz and the Tantrums and Twenty One Pilots to the main stages Friday, July 25. Headliners Young the Giant (pictured), Capital Cities and Cold War Kids play to the masses Saturday, July 26. Look for an additional stage at this outdoor festival touting more than 100 music acts throughout the district. General admission ($20-$50) and VIP ($175-$200) tickets are available at www.centeroftheuniversefestival.com.
