LINCOLN CITY – The Lincoln Amphitheatre will celebrate its 35th anniversary in 2022 with a performance series that is as diverse of an offering as the venue has seen since the Indiana Destination Development Corporation took over its day-to-day management in 2015.
Bolstered by rising group and Americana award-winning artist The Lone Bellow, blues sensation Ana Popovic and Indiana’s own Henry Lee Summer, the 2022 season will also see a number of tribute performances to some of the most well-loved and well-known music the world has ever known.
The summer series will be anchored by a three-night run of Making a Home on Pigeon Creek: a Celebration of Lincoln Amphitheatre Musicals and the season will kick off on Saturday, May 14, with a very special evening with author and former A Prairie Home Companion host Garrison Keillor.
The 2022 Lincoln Amphitheatre series marks the seventh summer of a unique partnership and management agreement between the Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC) and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). IDDC is part of Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch’s family of business.
“The Lincoln Amphitheatre has seen tremendous growth since 2015,” Crouch said. “We look forward to seeing continued growth in 2022, while also celebrating the iconic southern Indiana venue’s diverse 35-year history as well as its very bright future.”
