Guided By Voices, Matisyahu, Cursive head Maha Festival 2011
Over the last two summers, the Maha Music Festival has become Omaha’s little festival that could. The one-day, indie-centric event was even named “Best Outdoor Festival” last year with a lineup that included Spoon, Superchunk, and Omaha natives The Faint. With the three acts announced Monday night on the festival’s Facebook account, things are boding well for another successful affair this time around.
Reunited indie luminaries Guided By Voices, Hasidic reggae phenom Matisyahu, and local-boys-made-good Cursive will all take the TD Ameritrade-sponsored main stage. The majority of the lineup is still being finalized, so keep your eyes peeled for more top-tier names.
The festival will be held on August 13th at Lewis & Clark Landing. Tickets go on sale April 30th at 10:00 a.m. via Etix, and they’ll only set you back 30 bills – not bad for an already impressive lineup. More information can be found at the Maha Festival website.
