Quint Davis, Producer/Director of the Superfest, said, “We are excited to announce that the Louisiana Memorial Day Weekend tradition that is Bayou Country Superfest is going under the Dome in New Orleans!  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.  The large scale stadium-type festival we all loved in Tiger Stadium T, 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.”

The three-day Superfest will begin with a kick-off outdoor evening concert celebration on Friday, May 26 in Champions Square, which will be free and open to the public, followed by two huge nights of performances on Saturday and Sunday (May 27 and 28) in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on a spectacular stage by some of the biggest names in country music.  Champions Square will also be the site of the Festival’s daytime Fan Fest on Saturday and Sunday.  The full talent lineup and ticket information for the Bayou Country Superfest will be announced on December 1.
