This year’s headliners include Panic! At the Disco and Three Days Grace.
“What sets the Center of the Universe Festival apart is the wide variety of music and arts we are able to bring together during a two-day event,” said Kim Hann, assistant executive director for the Center of the Universe Festival. “In addition to the variety you see on our Main Stage and other stages, the Club Venue artists allow us to expand the genres of music offered. This format also allows us to provide a platform for these very deserving and talented up-and-coming bands.”
Following a week of online voting, the fans selected Nicnos as the winner and final artist on the Oklahoma Stage presented by the Hardesty Family Foundation. Nicnos, a five-piece band with high energy and a combination of rock, blues and a fiddle twist, will play the Oklahoma Stage on Saturday night at 6 p.m.
“We aim to give attendees what they want,” said Hann. “Our goal is to offer enough variety so everyone can find an artist they love. We believe concerts are for seeing a favorite band, but musical festivals allow people to explore new bands they might never discover otherwise. We’re proud to bring that opportunity to Tulsa.”
