Bayou Country Superfest heads to Baton Rouge in 2019

December 21, 2018

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Organizers of the Bayou Country Superfest say the festival is leaving behind the Superdome in New Orleans and returning to Baton Rouge next year.

News outlets report the organizers announced Thursday that the 10th anniversary show of the Memorial Day weekend country music festival will be held at LSU’s Tiger Stadium. The festival launched at that stadium in 2010 and moved to New Orleans last year while the stadium underwent renovations.

Superdome general manager Alan Freeman says the event had two successful years in New Orleans, but it’s the right time for it to return home.

The 2017 show marked the festival’s third year of declining attendance, and the event scaled back to a single night this year. The festival will resume its two-night schedule in Baton Rouge.
