Big Freedia will headline the entertainment lineup for the upcoming National Fried Chicken Festival in New Orleans.
Organizers say the entertainment lineup also includes Naughty Professor, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Sean Ardoin and the Zydekool, the Spirit of New Orleans Gospel Choir, Kristen Diable and The City, Motel Radio and more.
"With the addition of a second music stage, it allowed us the ability to create more opportunities for New Orleans musicians, while providing a greater diversity in entertainment for our guests," Cleveland Spears III said.
Spears said the organization is confident the lineup will entertain everyone from Millennials to baby boombers.
The festival, presented by Raising Cane’s, is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 23-24 in Woldenberg Park. The event is a free, outdoor festival “to celebrate and indulge in one of America’s favorite dishes.”
