Beach Fossils joins Friday night lineup; Three-day music schedules released

Lincoln Calling is pleased to announce the addition of indie rock band Beach Fossils to the festival! The move comes in the wake of Charles Bradley’s cancellation due to illness.


In 2017, the Brooklyn trio has performed at major music events FYF Fest and Soundrive Fest and is currently touring through Europe. The band is fresh off its third-studio album,Somersault, which features some of its most nuanced work to date. Beach Fossils performs Friday at 11 p.m. in Duffy’s Tavern back lot (immediately following Angel Olsen’s performance across the street at Bourbon Theatre).






Speaking of set times, we have released the full three-day music schedule,with everything festivalgoers need to plan their attack. Find them in the images below. *Schedules subject to change.

In partnership with Carson+Co Global and Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler’s Office, Lincoln Calling has incorporated several key sustainability initiatives to make the festival more eco-friendly and help us #sustainNE. Recycling stations staffed by volunteers will be available at each venue. Two Springomobile hydration units will operate from 3-10 p.m. at each end of the Night Market.

Our sustainability focus also includes transportation. StarTran will run a free bus route between the southeast corner of 14th & O (just south of the Night Market) and The Bay, 20th & Y St, every 15 minutes. LES will run four pedicabs downtown from 6-9 p.m.





We are still looking for volunteers to help make the festival go! In exchange for your hard work, you’ll get a 3-day festival pass, a free Lincoln Calling T-shirt, and a heckin’ good time. Apply now to be part of it all!
