Are we as a people in Louisiana, music festival'd out? Yep, I made up a new word, but the question is a valid one, nonetheless.
But, as most of you know by looking at the web newspapers, event sites and our own proud, cutting-edge entertainment webpage, right here, (yes, a shameless plug; but we're sexy and we know it!) Louisiana is hardly lacking for music festivals.
Take a look around the area, if you think we're wrong. Whether its cold, rainy or sweltering hot, any particular weekend in this SE Louisiana region a concert, fair or festival will be going on. But guess what, we're not the only area primed to party for your weekend pleasures. Other states are raising the bar for your music festival dollars; plus, they are coming on very strong to compete with a Louisiana staple.
Plus, if you want to keep your travel confined to the I-10 coast destinations, check out the all-new Fort Rock festival in Fort Myers, Florida.
Keeping with our Louisiana pride, this event will be co-produced by N.O. Jazz Fest partner AEG Live. With a line-up of hard and alt-metal 90’s rockers, such as the Offspring, 3 Doors Down, Pop Evil, Escape and The Fate, Grunge styles and feelings should be well channeled for the April 14 festival. (Full lineup and info at fortrockfestival.com.)
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers headlines the fest and other big name acts include: The Kings of Leon and the Black Crows.
Plus, New Orleanians, Anders Osborne, Galactic and the Revivalists will also be making an appearance. The full lineup and tickets are over at hangoutmusicfest.com.
The three day fest is a indie-music lover's dream with over 100 bands being featured. Running from March 7th to the 9th, their line-up boasts bands from the eclectic to the completely unknown, with the setup, design and decor crafted by students at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
So if art, music and thought leans towards your forte, you can reserve your attendance, or ticket at: savannahstopover.com.
