Kick Off Your Weekend with the 15th Annual Lincoln Calling

Looking for a thrilling way to kick off the weekend? Head to Downtown Lincoln to enjoy Lincoln Calling! Now in its 15th year, this annual, non-profit music festival focuses on emerging artists and occurs across multiple indoor and outdoor venues across Nebraska’s capital city. Lincoln Calling is a week filled with amazing music and local artisans surrounded by community and professional development.

Over the course of one week in the fall, Lincoln Calling draws thousands of concertgoers from around the country to catch more than 100 emerging bands in Downtown Lincoln. In 2017 Lincoln Calling drew more than 8,000 music lovers to downtown Lincoln, including patrons from 75 cites, 25 states, and 3 countries. The festival is committed to being an accessible, affordable and easily navigable exhibition of Nebraska’s diverse arts scene as well to helping Lincoln attract top-flight national talent.

New to the 2018 festival is Make Lincoln (a maker’s fair), a 3-day Night Market, YP Week, and Lincoln Start Up Week. Sustainability continues to be a priority, with conscious decisions around the festival's transportation options, energy sources, and waste streams.

The festivities begin on Wednesday, September 19th and extend through Sunday, September 23rd. VIP, general admission, and day-specific tickets are available for purchase. Learn more by visiting
