I know this is cutting it pretty close, but the Nebraska Pop Festival takes place from September 15th-19th in Omaha. This is the 2nd year of the festival and it benefits Omaha’s college radio station, MavRadio, so it is definitely worth supporting, as is all college radio.

The festival features bands from 13 different states: Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Illinois, Colorado, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Utah, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Florida, Washington and California as well as several international bands from Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, France and Canada. Tickets are $5 nightly and are available at the door only, anytime during each Nebraska Pop Festival event.

Sampling some of the bands on their Myspace pages, this looks to be a pretty good 5 nights of indie pop music. Definitely check out the free mixtape of bands playing, especially since there is some really good music on there. I really wish I could go this year and would have made an attempt had I known about it a little sooner, but for those who are going, have fun!!
