Over this past weekend, hundreds of people ventured out to Sokol Park, just south of Omaha, to enjoy a few days full of music, friendship, community, and most importantly, love. This year marked Love Fest in the Midwest’s fifth annual music and camping festival.

With more than 20 bands performing funk, blue grass, progressive rock, there was a wide variety of music for people to enjoy. The festival also featured workshops from several vendors.

This weekend’s headliners were Nahko and Medicine for the People and Split Lip Rayfield. Other acts included Family Groove Company, Funk Trek, Jerry Pranksters, Cowgirl’s Trainset and many more. A complete list of acts can be found here.
