Tipitina’s and Galactic partner for inaugural Landing Festival, September 26-27

Ever since the closing of the World’s Fair back in the 1980s, music lovers in New Orleans have longed for a new venue on the water which would provide concertgoers with cool breezes and hot jams. This fall, our dreams come true with the first Landing Festival located on the south shore of Lake Ponchatrain.

Tipitina’s and Galactic are curating the two-day festival’s offerings and it looks to be a who’s who of local and national jam-oriented bands.

Of course, Galactic will perform. Expect to see Grace Potter, Cake, Dr. Dog, Trampled by Turtles, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, the North Mississippi Allstars, Anders Osborne present N.M.O., the Soul Rebels, and Rayland Baxter. More bands are expected to be announced.

The project is part of a development which was announced in January that is also expected to include a water park. It is located on the site of the former Bally’s Casino. The project’s partners, Tipitina’s owner, Roland von Kurnatowski and Eric George, a local surgeon, are also leaders of the team, which is renovating the historic Orpheum Theater.

Early bird tickets are available now.
