Maha Festival Will Return in 2021 After Cancel This Year


Maha Festival would have been this week had it not been canceled, and in honor of all of that is bright, sunny, and possibly a little sweaty, the organizer shares some news: the 2021 festival will be Wednesday through Sunday, July 28 to August 1, at various locations around Omaha, Nebraska.

In the middle of a pandemic, the organizer wanted you to know they’re working hard to make next year’s festival happen without compromising anyone’s safety – that goes for their attendees, staff, performers, and volunteers.

The 13th annual Maha Festival will be full of new stuff to check out, along with your favorites:

  • Music from national & local acts
  • Talks and panels covering topics on innovation, food, wellness, and more
  • A brand new regional craft beer experience
  • Omaha Lit Fest, Community Village, comedy, art, and the list go on!

Locations, safety protocol, ticket prices, lineups, and all other details will be rolled out as the event gets closer. For now, just plan to be there.

The organizer is asking for your support for the Save Our Stages Act and RESTART Act, relief bills in Congress that would ensure independent venues get the help they need to pay their bills and staff to survive and bring us all awesome live shows when it’s safe again.

You can help! Head to, brought to you by the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), and use the pre-written form to contact your legislators (or add your message). So far more than a million people have done this, and the cause is gaining traction. Proof that your voice counts.
