Summer Concerts

You already know Lincoln Calling for the top-notch music, art and educational programming it brings to downtown every fall — and that won’t change in 2022. But this year, downtown is not our only home base.

INTRODUCING… Lincoln Calling: In The Parks, a concert series spanning four Thursdays in August, showcasing the cream of Nebraska’s musical crop. Each concert will be set under the summer sky at one of Lincoln’s unique neighborhood parks!

Here’s what to expect at each concert: live music from two Nebraska artists, food truck options from local culinary staples, interactive art exhibits, and Lincoln-based DJ’s keeping the vibes up all night long.

THE PARKS: August 4 — Henry Park, near 44th and Prescott streets; August 11 — Tierra Briarhurst Park, near 27th Street and NE Hwy 2; August 18 — Havelock Park, near 63rd Street and Morrill Avenue; August 25 — Peter Pan Park, near 33rd and W streets.

THE BANDS: August 4 — Verse and the Vices (Lincoln art rock), Uh Oh (Omaha power pop); August 11 — HAKIM (Lincoln hip-hop) and Wick O’Rya (Lincoln jazz-pop); August 18 — Emily Bass & The Near Miracle (Lincoln soul) and TBA (TBA); August 25 — Live Lyve (Lincoln roots-world) and Mad Dog & The 20/20s (Lincoln ska-punk).

We are so grateful to our partners at Lincoln Parks Foundation to have an opportunity to connect even further with the great community members and residents of Lincoln.
