It's one of the biggest festivals in Louisiana – and in a state known as the Festival Capital of America, that's really saying something. The Bayou Country Superfest draws fans from all the over the U.S. to Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge for a three-day Memorial Weekend stadium-sized bash filled with amazing country music, tailgating parties, great food and plenty of fun.
The main event at Superfest is the live music. For three days, from May 23 – 25, BCS will bring together the biggest stars in country music for a series of back-to-back, unforgettable shows.
The party kicks off later today with George Strait, Reba and Chris Young.
Saturday's line-up features Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Lee Brice, Easton Corbin and Gloriana.
Sunday's Superfest concludes with Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Hunter Hayes, Joe Nichols and Big & Rich.
Tailgating is kind of a big deal here too. You're in a football arena after all, so partying, grilling, eating in the parking lot just makes sense. If you've never tailgated before, it can be as simple as packing yourself some lunch or dinner, setting up some folding chairs by your car and enjoying the company of friendly, like-minded people who are bound to strike up conversation.
Even if you're not attending the main stage concerts, you can still enjoy Fan Fest, a free festival featuring music, food and fun, located in the stadium's Parking Lot A. A music performance stage will feature bands throughout the day and an "Artist Meet and Greet" area offers fans a chance to meet Superfest performers. There will also be prize giveaways and vendors selling food and merchandise.
Tickets to all shows are still available and can be purchased online here.
Don't miss this star-studded and fun-filled weekend!
