Lincoln Amphitheater Launches 3-Day Amp Unplugged Series


The Lincoln Amphitheater is adding a smaller, three-date Sunday event series called “Amp Unplugged” to its 2022 performance schedule. The events will be late afternoon “matinées” performances and will be of varying genres.

“The intention of this series is not only to expand our seasonal offerings, but to bring performances to our Kyana Woodstock performance scene that we otherwise could not bring as part of our normal Saturday event series” , said Marc Steczyk, Lincoln Amphitheater. director. “We are limiting this to three Sundays this year to gauge community and regional interest and, if successful, we will further consider adding more Sunday dates in future years.”

Amp Unplugged performances are for all ages with general admission seating and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Discounts including beer/wine for guests 21+ will be available.

The 2022 Amp Unplugged Sunday dates are:

Sunday, August 28, 4 p.m. Central: Kentucky Shine. Having recently performed at the ROMP Music Festival (among other events), Kentucky Shine has been recognized as one of the strongest emerging bluegrass talents in the region.
