Sunday, April 14: Tab Benoit, Kenny Neal, C.J. Chenier and the Red Hot Louisiana Band, Mike Zito, Rosie Ledet and the Zydeco Playboys

In addition, the festival will once again bring back its annual kickoff party on Thursday, April 11 at the Palladium, with Salgado headlining. Tickets to that show are on sale now starting at $25.

And once again, Blues Fest will be hosting after-parties at Ringside Cafe on Friday and Saturday nights. The Friday party will feature Welch Ledbetter Connection and the Blackburn Brothers; Saturday will feature Kenny Neal and Vanessa Collier.
