Continental Drift Music Festival is a one-day, grassroots music festival held Nebraska. Originally located at Riverwest Park in Omaha, it has since relocated to the Fremont Lakes a few miles northwest of “The Big O” in Fremont, NE.
Since 2012, area bands have been bringing rock, folk, powerpop, Americana, soul, alt-country, and singer-songwriter music to the great Nebraska outdoors. Organized by Onken-Stein Records, the festival includes a line-up of 5-11 bands playing throughout the course of the day and camping. Certain years featured a movie on the drive-in style screen at the end of the night.
