February 14, 2019

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, and Florida Georgia Line are some of the stars headlining Bayou Country Superfest as it returns this May to Baton Rouge.

Organizers announced the lineup Thursday. The festival takes place May 25 and May 26 at Tiger Stadium.

Dan + Shay and Cassadee Pope join Kenny Chesney and Florida Georgia Line on Saturday night. Kane Brown, Brett Young and Chase Rice will perform on Sunday night along with Jason Aldean.

Tickets go on sale February 21.

The first seven editions of Superfest played out at Tiger Stadium before off-season renovations to the stadium forced the festival to move to New Orleans in 2017.

Gov. John Bel Edwards said in a news release that the return of the music event would be an “economic boon” for the region.
