OMAHA, NE — February 22, 2023 — More than 13,000 fans are expected to come together over two days at Maha Festival, which will take place at Aksarben Village on Friday, July 28 and Saturday, July 29. This is the 15th annual event for the Omaha-based nonprofit.

The festival, which is presented for a second year by Medical Solutions, will feature 15 artists on two stages. A pair of recent Grammy Award nominees will headline: Big Thief, the alt-folk indie act fronted by renowned songwriter Adrianne Lenker, on Saturday; and Turnstile, the genre-pushing hardcore band known for their unforgettably energetic live performances, on Friday.

Joining them will be alternative/dream pop college radio chart mainstays Alvvays; surf-rock indie band Peach Pit; indie rockers from New Zealand, The Beths; post-punk synth artist EKKSTACY; hip-hop/funk artist Terry Presume; Saddle Creek Records alt pop artist Black Belt Eagle Scout; and soulful disco pop group Say She She.

Nebraska-based acts include: Icky Blossoms, BIB, M34N STR33T, Garst, HAKIM, and Ebba Rose. Twelve DJs will perform at the NFM Silent Disco — one of the most popular festival features — throughout the weekend.
