Flambeau Fest Director Mark Adam Miller discusses Flambeau Fest on KALB!


Flambeau Fest has been announced! The festival’s inaugural weekend will take place on Ascension Fields at Lamar Dixon in Gonzales, LA, minutes outside Baton Rouge, on October 7 and 8, 2017. Inheriting its name from the processional torch of Mardi Gras, Flambeau Fest is the new torchbearer for American music in the South – a beacon of music, arts and family culture.

Flambeau Fest is a two-day, multi-stage event at Ascension Fields featuring world class musical Artists, regional breakout performers, famous southern cuisine, local and regional artisans, and the community-orientated hospitality that defines Southern Louisiana culture. Flambeau Fest will present 3 Stages filled with great music. The MAIN Stage will be loaded with A-list and just-exploding national Country Artists, as well as Southern Rock icons. The Torch Stage will showcase rising stars in Country, including multiple regional breakout talents.

A unique Flambeau Fest event will be the Nashville Songwriter stage, hosting the acoustic melodies of some of the greatest Nashville #1 hit songwriters, strumming inside the Louisiana Libations tent. The Louisiana Libations Tent and separate Food Promenade will feature a wide variety of authentic cuisine from the region’s top vendors, and tastings from local craft breweries, distilleries, and wineries.

For local and regional businesses, Flambeau Fest will drive tourism dollars toward the effort of rebuilding an area hit hard.
