In Lafayette, Louisiana, you know that spring is almost here when the Festival International de Louisiane announces its lineup. Well folks — spring is almost here. Never a festival to disappoint, FIL has put together another awesome lineup for 2011. The Festival International de Louisiane as gathered the perfect mix of local, national and international artists for what will likely be another killer festival.
Headlining the festival are Keb’ Mo’ and Remesha Master Drummers of Burundi. The Master Drummers of Burundi have played this festival before and are always fan favorites. Appealing to the local collegiate crowd, Feufollet, Givers, Balkan Beat Box, The Duhks and Toubab Krewe will be on hand to entertain in the streets of Historic Downtown Lafayette. Most exciting for me is the fact that most of the Louisiana Legends will be making an appearance sometime during the festival. BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet, Sonny Landreth, Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience, Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys, and the Louisiana Experience are all at the heart of the Acadiana music scene.
In other words, this is going to be a festival you don't want to miss, so I'll be looking for you on Jefferson Street.
