Lincoln Calling is a chance to see some of Nebraska’s best artists sharing the stage with national acts.
Our festival now boasts 50/50 representation between male and female artists at a time when, on average, only 15% of performers at national music festivals are women. Since 2016, 60% of our headliners represent BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities.
And while Lincoln Calling has varied slightly in length and venue participation in its lifetime, in recent years it has consistently offered in the vicinity of 100 performances.
Since 1936 Lincolnites have come to enjoy live music and Fish Bowls at this well-known establishment. By expanding into the alley parking lot, the Duffy’s Backlot stage is one of the most engaging of the festival.
