The summer music festival held at TD Ameritrade Park for the past two years is being discontinued.
The Metropolitan Entertainment & Convention Authority (MECA) and Live Nation have made the joint decision to discontinue the Red Sky Music Festival. Both organizations said they had high hopes the event would be successful and continue for many years, unfortunately difficulties with artists’ summer tour schedules and hot weather conditions in July made that challenging. Organizers did not see those issues changing in the future.
The decision to discontinue the Red Sky Music Festival will provide more flexibility with dates and artist schedules, giving MECA the ability to explore other outdoor opportunities.
Commenting on the decision, MECA President and CEO Roger Dixon stated, “We have a positive relationship with Live Nation and both sides worked very hard to make Red Sky a success. We will continue to work together to bring great shows to Omaha, whether in CenturyLink Center Omaha or TD Ameritrade Park Omaha.”
The outdoor festival, produced by MECA and Live Nation, began in 2011 and took place in and around TD Ameritrade Park Omaha in July.
