 This past weekend’s Maha festival was just the beginning. In the next few weeks, we have festivals on festivals on festivals. This Saturday in Downtown Omaha is In The Market for Blues. This festival will have 35 artists at ten venues, all within walking distance of each other. With the park opened up, downtown walkability is easier than it has been in years. Headlining this festival is Chicago bluesman Toronzo Cannon, who will be performing at The Holland Center Mammel Courtyard. To see the full lineup and purchase tickets, head here.

The Four Winds Festival Omaha is happening on Friday and Saturday at The Waiting Room and Reverb Lounge. Dozens of acts will perform, including Alyeska, C10, Public Figure, Faith Freeman, and Jay Influential. I did an interview with one of the organizers, Justin Strawstone, in last month’s print version of The Reader, and it will be up online tomorrow. I will post a link on the Omaha Buzz Facebook page and Threads page. You can purchase tickets to the festival here.

A super cool new festival is GRRRL Camp at Falconwood Park on Saturday. This one is all about the GRRRL’s and they have an incredible lineup of area, regional, and touring artists, a lot of fun activities, and tons of vendors. The Velveteers headline this one, and you can get tickets here.

The New American Arts Festival is happening in the Benson Creative District on Friday (Benson First Friday). I am not sure who is all performing, but they will have music at Shakedown Street as part of the festival. You can find details on everything happening here.
