Maha Music Festival announces 2011 date!

Maha Music Festival will take place on Aug. 13 on the Lewis & Clark Landing on Omaha’s riverfront.

Last year’s concert — which featured Spoon, Superchunk, The Fain, Ben Kweller and the Mynabirds, among others — was both a great concert and a success from the standpoint of the planners.

It was definitely an improvement over the previous year and I expect this year to be just as good, if not better.

Maha had planned on another July date for its third fest in 2011, but MECA’s planned Red Sky Music Festival bumped it. Still, the Maha board is going strong and with the date and venue locked down, they’re now working hard on booking a headliner and sponsors.

Stay tuned for info on who will be playing the festival in August.

Here's my question to you, dear readers: Who would you like to see play the Maha Music Festival?

Let me know in the comments.


  1. My lineup:

    Mumford & Sons
    Fitz and The Tantrums
    Ra Ra Riot

  2. I agree with Mumford & Sons. I would also like to see Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.

  3. I hope Mumford & Sons and Phoenix come but I'd love for Ben Kweller to come back. He's amazing!!!

  4. I would like to see these bands come Rural Alberta Advantage, Okkervil River, Avett Brothers, She and Him, The New Pornographers, and The Decemberists. Any mixture of them or all of them. That would be cool.

  5. I'd offer an eclectic mix including My Morning Jacket, Soul Asylum, Cheap Trick, Hold Steady, Mercy Rule, Gaslight Anthem, Wilco, Superchunk, the Faint, Little Brazil, Flaming Lips....

  6. what are some other music festivals that are like WMC, electric zoo and ultra music festival?
    Thank you
