This year’s festival is presented by NRC Health! After two years of pandemic-related adjustments, festival organizers and downtown venues are excited to be back this year with a full lineup and seven stages in the mix.

In addition to our music offerings is the brand new Tower Square Community Village – a partnership with our friends at the Lincoln Arts Council and presented by Ameritas – which will close 13th Street between P and Q streets and present artist vendors, interactive art installations, nonprofit booths, live music and more. This space will be an all-access, all-ages, family-friendly and free portion of the festival’s Friday and Saturday nights.

New Orleans collective Tank and the Bangas have been catapulted to new heights since winning NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest. With the irrepressible Tarriona ‘Tank’ Ball leading the charge, the crew meld spoken word, soul, funk and improvisational jazz in unforgettable live performances that are every bit as vibrant and quirky as their home town. Bell is the charismatic “conductor of a colourful, boisterous orchestra” (Auston Chronicle), spitting out rapid-fire versesand diving into soulful, spine-tingling vocals.

“The group have been a well-kept secret for years, but the word is out.” (Rolling Stone)
