Music and art unite the community while uplifting artists from Lincoln and across the U.S.
Lincoln Calling is back. From Sept. 23-25, bands, artists, and local organizations were finally able to gather in person for a weekend that took the Lincoln arts scene by storm. Lincoln Calling is a nonprofit organization that works to promote art, music and education in the community. The annual music festival brings artists from all over the country, and from Lincoln, to perform on the same stages.
In a typical year, performances are indoor and outdoor, with Lincoln venues participating in the event. Last year, the event was completely online. This year, because of the pandemic, organizers of Lincoln Calling chose to downsize from over 70 bands to 40 bands and have all of their stages outside. While the event was smaller this year, the community still showed up to support the arts.
