Last year, the Maha Music Festival escaped the Missouri River flooding and moved inland to Aksarben Village. This year, the nonprofit festival organized and run by volunteers will kick off its 40 days (and change) of music on June 29 and end with the festival itself on Aug. 11. Only four of those days before the big event will feature live sets, though, so don't let the ominous "40 days" lead you to buy any heavy-duty umbrella.
Yes, Noah's Ark Was a Spaceship helped Maha land at Stinson Park last year, but this year the summer that precedes Aug. 11 will play host to four showcases and a new stock of local bands marching in two by two: That's two concerts in Lincoln and two in Omaha.
Before we make any more jokes, let's just cut to the schedule:
Eli Mardock | June 30 | Maha Music Festival/Hear Nebraska:
Universe Contest | July 13 | Maha Music Festival/Hear Nebraska:
July 19 | Maha Music Festival/1% Productions:
