The City of Omaha recognized the Maha Festival’s efforts to draw people, especially young professionals, to the city earlier this week.

People from across the region and across the country have joined the festival, returning in full force for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. Friends from Amherst College in Massachusetts spend their weekends and money on the subway, enjoying Omaha’s intimate attitude.

“We keep seeing people, and then we run into them and say, ‘Oh, hey, what’s going on!?'” said Rebecca Schwartz, who lives in Manhattan, New York.

Jack St. George of Duluth, Minnesota said, “What I’ve noticed is that everyone here seems very excited to see you.

“We usually go to Lollapalooza, but this year the lineup was bad,” said Davis Provost of St. Cloud, Minnesota. “All of these big-ticket festivals have the worst line-ups, but this line-up swept it all out of the water.”

Maha’s co-executive director says it’s for everyone, but in 14 years of hosting hundreds of artists, Rachel Grace says she’s become more data-oriented than people think.

The organizers conduct on-site research and line up programs. Priority is given to popular products under the age of 34.

“There are tools in the industry that you can look at and one of them is called Chartmetric,” says Grace. “This shows the demographics of an individual band’s listener base, so we typically look at it to make sure we’re targeted for the professional demographic.”

Grace says most attendees are from Omaha. 10% come from the rest of the state.

According to Grace, about 30% live in the suburbs, often between 27% and 35%.

Keira Lehmann of Boulder, Colorado, said, “I really enjoyed walking around the Old Market and checking out my favorite restaurants from my last time here, especially the Boiler Room.

Rebecca Schwartz said, “Most people seem to be from here, and when they see us, everyone is really surprised that we are here.

“I was very impressed with how clean it was,” Wheaton said.

They didn’t get to the point where they had a lot of interest in Omaha.

“We’re only here on the weekends. We’re at a music festival. I can’t say I want to live here full-time,” Schwartz said.

I am still drawn to Omaha’s creative vibrancy.
