Less than three months away from Lincoln Calling and we are amped for what is in store.
We released round two of the downtown music festival’s lineup Thursday, and it includes more than 65 local and nationally touring bands. Palehound, El Ten Eleven, Post Animal and Ian Sweet were part of the second big reveal, joining headliners Charli XCX, Best Coast, Angel Olsen and Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires for the three-day music festival Sept 28-30, produced by Hear Nebraska and The Bay and presented by Allo Communications.
In addition, Hear Nebraska has made both individual day lineups and single-day passes available. Best Coast leads the way on Thursday, while Angel Olsen and Charles Bradley top Friday night’s affair and Charli XCX takes Saturday night.
A large swath of Nebraska acts came with today’s announcement, bringing the current total to 80. Among them are Twinsmith, David Nance Band, Digital Leather, Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal, Hakim, See Through Dresses, I Forgot To Love My Father and so much more. The full listing is below.
Tickets are on-sale now. The festival pass remains the best value (especially now) at $59, and there’s an under-19 option at $29. Single-day passes are $29 for Thursday and $34 for Friday and Saturday. The SPEED! VIP pass — which gets you to the front of every venue line, private main-stage viewing areas, food and drink passes and more — goes for $250. Grab passes here.
