The three day online fest is part of our Lincoln Calling Give to Lincoln fundraising campaign. Lincoln Calling has quickly switched its 2020 focus and production to support Lincoln’s music and arts communities. During these times we know how much our friends in the entertainment industry are struggling. We want to do our part to create opportunities for our local artists and secure the future of Lincoln’s entertainment industry. The funds we raise during this event, and the month of May, will go towards creating more events throughout the year to support our local music and arts community.

The Andy Animal “Meltasia” festival takes place in Catskill, New York. It is a focused rock’n’roll weekend event that brings together the coolest of the cool underground tastemakers, like the Black Lips, Shannon & the Clams, Pentagram, Kool Keith, Bloodshot Bill, White Mystery, Mungo Jerry, and Black Oak Arkansas. In 2016, comedian Neil Hamburger was the host, hundreds of people camped in an abandoned zoo, and harmonica master Daddy Long Legs even played in a former monkey cage.
“Most nutty, unbridled, non-commodified fun I’ve had in years,” Elmore Magazine
“Walking Dead’ Dale complains about noisy music fest Meltasia,” Brooklyn Vegan
“THE trash rock gathering of the year,” CMJ
“Food, drinks, souvenirs, vintage goods and other surprises,” Hudson Valley One
“Live like a free roaming animal in an actual abandoned zoo,” Music MixDown
“I may have been the only person who brought their mom to Meltasia,” Buried Muse
