Presented by Live Nation and Omaha’s Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority (MECA), the Red Sky Music Festival runs July 19-24 and will take place in and around TD Ameritrade Park and the Qwest Center. Plans call for two outdoor stages in MECA parking lot B in front of the Qwest Center during the daylight hours with the action moving next door to the TD Ameritrade Park after sunset.

While Red Sky’s initial announcement didn’t mention any artists or bands, saying those particulars won’t be released until 2011, it included quotes from the folks involved. Like this one from Mark Campana, Co-President, Live Nation, North American Concerts:

“Omaha is a strong live music market making it an ideal city to create a multi-night music festival to feature the best in superstar and emerging touring talent. The success of Qwest Center Omaha has proved time and time again that Omaha music fans are some of the most passionate live music fans in the country. We are excited to work with The Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority on what we hope to be a musical highlight of the summer for Omaha.”

We also have these words from MECA President and CEO Roger Dixon:

“Partnering with Live Nation, the world’s largest live music company, gives us access to an incredible artistic lineup. We have been working hard to make the Red Sky Music Festival a reality, and we are intrigued with the possibilities of where this festival can go.”

Apparently the festival is soooo new that it doesn’t have its own website. But you can read the complete announcement by clicking here.
