Lincoln Calling 2016 was a great step-up for the already established music festival and for Lincoln. In its first year under operation by Hear Nebraska, the festival took place Oct. 6-9, 2016, across eight downtown Lincoln stages, with over 100 touring and local performers. KZUM was pleased to host performances and interviews in the festival’s VIP Lounge at 1867 Bar.

Here are portions of those sessions, including select video performances and full session audio.
