Need some music with your fried chicken? The National Fried Chicken Festival’s ready: Big Freedia, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, and more Featured

Written by  The Spears Group & IntheNOLA.com
Set to take place on Sat., Sept. 23 and Sun., Sept. 24, The National Fried Chicken Festival (FCF) presented by Raising Cane’s will not only showcase fried chicken over those two days, but also local and regional musicians, including Big Freedia, Naughty Professor, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Sean Ardoin & the Zydekool, The Spirit of New Orleans Gospel Choir, Kristen Diable & The City, Motel Radio, and many more.
 
“With the addition of a second music stage, we’ve been able to create more opportunities for New Orleans musicians, while providing a greater diversity in entertainment for our guests,” said Cleveland Spears, III, FCF organizer and President/CEO of the Spears Group. “We are confident we have curated an entertainment line-up that will appeal to everyone from Millennials to baby boomers and locals as well as our visiting tourists.”
Heather Ferdinand, Director of Programming for the FCF added, “For every flavor of nearly 100 different fried chicken dishes, there is a melody to match it! On the main stage, we have got rock and roll, soul, Cuban rhythms, indie rock, NOLA brass, funk, and bounce, gospel, zydeco and the list goes on and on.”

She continued, “The big Sunday night blowout happens right after Big Sam’s Funky Nation takes the stage with our ‘Ode to NOLA Bounce.’ Partners-N-Crime and the Big Easy Band will be doing some of their classics with Cupid and Denisia making a special appearance before The Queen Diva, Big Freedia takes the stage. In addition, the DJ stage will feature karaoke with Captain Charles, dance contests with DJ Raj Smoove, a special giveaway with DJ Quickie Mart, and some Saturday night reggae rhythms with DJ T-Roy.”

The National Fried Chicken Festival is a free outdoor festival in New Orleans that brings the community together to celebrate and indulge in one of America's favorite dishes. There will also be a variety of experiences for all ages including the Louisiana Federation for Children Kids' Coop, the Sucré Sweet Spot, the At&t and Best Buy Football Lounge, the GoNOLA Mist and Chill Lounge, the return of the Moet Chicken and Champagne VIP Lounge and more.
