Hear Nebraska is excited to welcome McCook as a host city of the 2016 Good Living Tour — Sunday, August 7!
In its second year, the Good Living Tour expands from 9 to 12 Greater Nebraska cities over three weekends this summer, July 21-Aug. 7. Like last year’s inaugural run, the tour will mix a concert series and storytelling project to celebrate the state’s unique livelihood and increasingly vibrant, original music culture.
An unprecedented project, the tour will bring free, all-ages concerts featuring a diverse mix of all-original Nebraska bands and DJs to each location. Its mission is to connect the state’s urban and rural communities, expose young audiences to music performance, educated the world about Greater Nebraska’s music and art scenes and ultimately help each participating town attract and retain young people.
Along with a concert, the Good Living Tour will also create two feature stories highlighting music community and industry-related subjects in McCook and an “Experience Nebraska” video featuring young professionals speaking about what makes McCook a uniquely great place to live, work and play, and a music video featuring a local artist performing a song at a landmark community location.
The concert is FREE, FAMILY FRIENDLY, and ALL AGES are encouraged to attend. Music begins at 6 p.m. Come young. Come old. Celebrate Good Living in Greater Nebraska!
