This year, UNO is once again a sponsor of the annual Maha Music Festival. Because of the sponsorship, a limited number of discounted tickets are being offered to the Omaha community. Anyone with a UNO email address will be able to use the code “UNOMAHA17” on the festival’s website to receive $10 off the regular ticket price.

UNO’s sponsorship will go towards Maha’s Community Village. Community Village will feature a variety of nonprofit organizations and offer hands-on activities for all ages.

This year marks the ninth year that the day-long nonprofit music festival has been held. The event takes place close to UNO’s campus on Saturday, August 19 at Stinson Park in Aksarben Village. Big names in this year’s lineup include Run the Jewels, as well as Belle and Sebastian.
