    See as much music as possible, dont miss the tents! Snacking while you walk to the next stage/tent saves time & dont hesitate to walk the outside track when possible.

    Today was a magical day at Gentilly Stage with Mia Borders as a featured artist. We are so fortunate to have her claim New Orleans as home.

    Take public transportation instead of the hotel shuttles. $2.50 round trip vs. $15-17 that the shuttles charge.
