French Quarter Music Festival – April: – The Independent

New Orleans: Where every building tells a story
The Independent
New Orleans is famed for its Mardi Gras but Bourbon Street is pretty wild most nights of the year in a bead-flinging, butt-wiggling “Show us what ya got!” kind of way. It’s pretty wild during the day too, with live jazz and mass alcohol consumption in the streets. It can make it difficult to squeeze down the streets of the French Quarter in search of Reverend Zombie’s Voodoo Shop or Panda Bear Bondage, when a guy dressed as a giant green hand grenade is handing out free samples of the city’s most powerful signature beverage, the “Tropical Isle Hand Grenade”.But the French Quarter Festival, which starts on 12 April, is a more representative event, featuring as many as 800 local musicians.

April 12 – 15, 2012
Enjoy 275 hours of entertainment featuring more than 150 musical performances on twenty stages throughout the French Quarter over four days.
