Lincoln Exposed 2018 will take place Wednesday through Saturday in five venues which will feature over 100 local bands and solo artists. The music festival celebrates Lincoln’s music scene and has grown tremendously over thirteen years since its start in 2006 which had 23 bands who performed at the Zoo Bar. The venues are The Zoo Bar, Duffy’s Tavern, 1867, Bodega’s Alley, Bourbon theatre. All venues are 21 + except for the Bourbon which is 18 +.

Day prices are $8 each for Wednesday and Thursday and $10 each for Friday and Saturday. All access passes for $25 and are available here. 

Pete Watters and Josh Hoyer started Lincoln Exposed to celebrate Lincoln’s growing music scene. Bands around the city play music genres ranging from rock to blues, folk to hip hop, and even jazz or dance/electronic.

Now, members of each venue typically lend their time to book and schedule the event. This year’s main organizers are Cortney Kirby, current employee of the Bourbon, and Spencer Munson, former employee of the Bourbon. Kirby helping for the third year while Munson has helped plan the festival for the past eight years.

Munson is looking forward to more Lincoln Exposed events in the future. “I believe the festival is at a great spot regarding size and span. We just need to get more fans to come out in the cold.”

On On Saturday, KZUM celebrates its “40th Birthday Bash” at the Bourbon which will feature bands in both the Main Room and the Rye Room. Bands playing include Emily Bass & The Near Miracle, Mesonjixx, Laughing Falcon, and Halfwit.

“We’re very thankful for the support from local breweries, Downtown Lincoln, Lefty’s Records, and KZUM,” said Munson. “Their sponsorship helps pay the bands and get the word out.”
