The 15th annual SWOSUPalooza is set for Saturday, April 5, on the Weatherford campus, and Graham Colton and Good Old War will headline this year’s music festival.

The event is presented by the SWOSU Student Government Association and 95.5 the Coyote.

SGA Special Projects Officer Brady Boyd said the event will be outside, on campus, and free for everyone.

“We’re excited to bring a lineup of five bands (three opening bands will be announced later) to campus,” Boyd said. “There will be great music, food trucks from Oklahoma City and a festival atmosphere.”

The music begins at 6 p.m., and the stage will be set on the south side of the Centennial Clock Tower in the center of campus. Festival goers can bring blankets and chairs and sit on the lawn of the Memorial Student Union.

Graham Colton in an Oklahoma native who has appeared on tour with John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band and Maroon Five. He has been featured on The Tonight Show and The Late Show.

Good Old War hails from Philadelphia, and the trio of Keith GOODwin, Tim ArnOLD, and Dan SchWARtz will bring their brand of indie-folk music to Weatherford. Since 2008, Good Old War has toured the world showcasing their acoustic tunes laced with catchy melodies. Good Old War’s most recent album, Come Back as Rain, is available through their Sargent House label.
