This is Lincoln Calling: music, art, innovation.


Where is Lincoln Calling?

What if it rains?

Lincoln Calling Music Festival is a rain-or-shine event! No refunds.


How do I get from venue to venue?

Most venues are conveniently situated in the same three-block area, so walking from stage to stage is not only easy, it’s encouraged. Please note The BAY is a 25-minute walk from downtown, and an even shorter bike ride.


Are the shows accessible to people with physical disabilities?

All music venues, bars and clubs participating in Lincoln Calling are ADA accessible.

How can I become a sponsor of Lincoln Calling?

What can/can’t I bring to the event?

No professional photography/videography equipment without a media pass. Smoke outside in designated areas.


When is the performance schedule released?

The performance schedule will be released a few weeks prior to the festival. If you want to be notified right away once the schedule is released, be sure to sign up for our mailing list or download our app. Artist lineup and schedule is subject to change without notice at any time.

Am I guaranteed to get into a show with a wristband?

No. All venues are subject to capacity.


What if I only want to see a particular artist and not the whole lineup?

Venue specific tickets will be available at the door, pending capacity/availability.
