It is a strange thing when humans are very sad, the stories and music they want to hear is not hopeful or happy; they want to hear SAD stories and music…so we suppose happy people wanna hear happy things maybe we only hear ourselves or we only LISTEN to ourselves Well, then, what had happened to us?

Maha is a nonprofit music festival organized and run by volunteers, and brought to you through the support of our many wonderful sponsors. We created Maha for community-building, not for profit. The idea of a homegrown music festival had been around for years, but finally found the right group of volunteers in 2009. If you share our passion, we invite you to attend, become a volunteer and/or share your ideas with us for making Maha bigger and better.
Maha is a day long music festival on Saturday, August 17, 2013, bringing together national, regional and local indie and rock artists for a day of food, community and, of course, music.
Aksarben Village has reserved both a parking garage and a large parking lot for the exclusive use of Maha attendees so there will be plenty of space for everyone (see picture above). And the best part, it’s all free.
The average high temperature in Omaha in August is 85 degrees with light humidity and light winds. We recommend you bring sunblock, even if it’s a little overcast early in the day. Midwest weather is known for its quick shifts! Sunset will be at 8:30 p.m. on August 17th.
We have no control over how wildly you spend your money at the strip club, but Maha will continue rain or shine. No refunds.
Yes, anyone with a ticket is welcome to join the fun. All ages are welcome! Things might get a bit rowdy up front, and as a general rule, the area directly in front of the stage is rarely kid-friendly. However, there’s plenty of space for everyone in much calmer areas. Children ages 10 and under do not need a ticket as long as they are accompanied by a paying adult.
Lawn chairs and blankets are allowed, tents are not. Sunscreen, sunglasses, hats and/or visors are suggested to let you enjoy the day without any sun-related discomfort. We reserve the right to inspect all bags, purses, backpacks, etc. before allowing entry to the Festival. And, no, couches are not allowed. Seriously.
You can not. No outside food or drink will be allowed.
There will be a wide variety of local food and drink available, and it will all be delicious. Check back soon for more details.
Small or disposable cameras will be allowed. Professional cameras will NOT be allowed. Essentially, if it has a removable lens, it’s a no go. Video and audio taping are NOT allowed.
Event security will be located throughout the grounds for the entire duration of the event. If you have an emergency, find a staff person with a radio, go to an information or medical tent, or tell one of the security personnel.
We are very pleased to be holding Maha at Aksarben Village for the third year, a gorgeous park area with plenty of access and free parking located on the city bike trail. We can’t thank Aksarben Village and its merchants enough for welcoming our relocation from the riverfront.
Whether you have been a member of our team before or want to help out for the first time, the deal is the same. For a volunteer shift at Maha on August 17th, we’ll give you a Maha T-shirt cool enough to wear year round, and a ticket to the show!
Check back in June for more details on how to volunteer.
