Smart Girl is excited for Maha!
Omaha girls and boys are gearing up for the exciting 10th annual Maha Music Festival on Friday, August 17th, and Saturday, August 18th in Aksarben Village.
This year, we’re so excited to join the festival as one of their nonprofit partner booths. We even have a fun activity planned for our booth… Can anyone say scrunchies?
Our top seven reasons for loving Maha?
We love the music. Okay, THAT’s an understatement. We LOVE the music.
This year’s lineup of bands includes:
- Father John Misty
- TV On The Radio
- The Kills
- ZZ Ward
- Benjamin Booker
- Hurray for the Riff Raff
- Ravyn Lenae
- Hop Along
- U.S. Girls
- State Disco
- Clarence Tilton
- David Nance Band
- The Dilla Kids
So many booths and kiosks filled with delicious food. Yumminess everywhere you turn!
You get to have a full music lineup with hundreds (or more!) music lovers.
The fresh air
Okay, maybe it’s not so fresh, but you get to listen to awesome music and eat awesome food while at a gorgeous outdoor venue. Win-win-win!
It isn’t age-specific
You see all age ranges at Maha, so it’s perfectly okay for tweens and teens to be seen there with their parents!
It’s all about Omaha
And, we love Omaha. In fact, this year’s Maha Music Festival is coinciding with Big Omaha
And a little warning
Now, we are also worry warts, so we just want to remind you and your families. If you’re going to a big eventlike Maha, revisit our blog post from College World Series on “Safety tips to avoid sex traffickers.” It may just save someone’s life or prevent someone from becoming a victim.
