NEW ORLEANS (CelebrityAccess) — Country music festival Bayou Country Superfest is leaving its home in Baton Rouge for new digs at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in nearby New Orleans.
Organizers announced the move as the festival's former home, the LSU Tigers Stadium, will be closed for renovations.
"When we started the Bayou Country Superfest, our goal was to create one of the great country music celebrations in America and grow it into an annual holiday tradition for Louisiana," said Festival Productions Inc. producer and director Quint Davis in a press release. "The large scale stadium-type festival we all loved in Tiger Stadium, which is not available to host the event, will make a triumphant move to the only other facility in the state that equals Tiger Stadium as a world renowned sports and entertainment venue — the Mercedes-Benz Superdome."
While it's moving venues, the festival will still take place as scheduled on Memorial Day Weekend, May 26 through May 28, 2017.
The festival, which will mark its 8th year in 2017, is expected to announce their country-infused lineup on December 1st. – Staff Writers
