French Quarter Fest Announces Program
Written by  // Wednesday, 05 February 2014 13:49 //

fq2Judging by recent press releases by the French Quarter Festival, locals and visitors should look forward to the second weekend of April. Today, the festival revealed two of this year's posters and the musical lineup.

fqfest1The two posters that were unveiled today are by local artists Varion Laurent and Simon Hardeveld. Laurent, a lifelong resident of New Orleans, has painted Dr. John, who is to return to the French Quarter Festival this year for the first time since 1987. According to French Quarter Fest, Laurent's painting captures “the energy of the French Quarter, a perfect backdrop for  Dr. John's charismatic persona.” Simon Hardeveld, who was born in France but relocated to New Orleans, is known for his popular “jovially phrased paintings,” and his contribution to the festival is no exception. This time, it features the statement “I want to live in a music festival forever.” The posters can be bought online, and the revenue helps the festival stay free and open to the public.

French Quarter Fest also released their musical lineup, and it includes famous names such as Irma Thomas, Dr. John and the Nite Trippers, The Dukes of Dixieland, Irvin Mayfield and the Jazz Playhouse Revue, as well as numerous other artists, orchestras, and brass bands.
