NEW ORLEANS -- Cyril Neville, Irma Thomas, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Robin Barnes, and Amanda Shaw are just a few of the 300 artists who will appear on 23 stages at French Quarter Fest 2018.



Organizers of French Quarter Fest are stepping it up this year for the 35th anniversary of the free music, food, and art festival.

This year's poster was created by popular local artist Frenchy, who specializes in live paintings of musical events and has been the official artist for the Saints and the Hornets for several years.

The poster portrays a scene from the popular Abita Stage. Organizers wanted to celebrate the diversity of the fest’s genres.


Organizers say since it's a banner year, the world's largest showcase of Louisiana music, food and culture will "bring a record number of musical debuts, fresh menu items, new partnerships, and unique experiences that will both honor our heritage and embrace our future."

Some of the big restaurants returning: Antoine's, Pat O'Brien's, Trey Yuen, Tujague's Vaucresson Sausage, Desire Oyster Bar and Court of Two Sisters. New restaurants coming to FQ Fest: Cafe Beignet, Cafe Dauphine, The Company Burger, The Daily Beet, Flamingo A-Go-Go and So Bou.

They're also launching a VIP membership experience, including a hospitality lounge, an elevated viewing area near the Abita stage, private bars, refreshments, air-conditioned restrooms, merchandise discounts, memorabilia, exclusive programming and more.

The fest runs from April 12th to the 15th, throughout the French Quarter and Woldenberg Park.
