If you didn’t get accepted into Mayfest this year, try the Blue Dome festival! It’s a fun little show, it’s just a couple blocks from Mayfest, and lots of people think it’s all one big show anyway.
Applications and more information is available on their Facebook page:

Disclaimer: I have nothing to do with this show. I am just a fan, and I want to help get the word out.
Now here’s where I tell you about the wind.
If you have never done this show, please please get a LOT of weight for your tent! Downtown Tulsa is naturally windy on its own. It could be sunny with no wind anywhere else, but between those buildings, you might get gusts of 40mph for no apparent reason. (That is, if you don’t take into account the wind currents at 200+ feet, and the drag coefficient of the buildings that reach that high.)
About Oklahoma.. Just think, we had some movie filmed here, we’re home to a place called the National Severe Storms Laboratory, we once experienced 300mph winds during a storm (while an F5+ tornado was busy obliterating the city of Moore), and one man keeps us advised of all this.
Anyway.. Don’t let all that weather stuff scare you. Take precautions, do the show and have fun! (..but take precautions)
