    Neville is one of twenty acts who will make their debut at the festival when its 34th edition takes over the French Quarter from Thursday, April 6 through Sunday, April 9. The iconic singer, who just picked up a few honors at last week’s Best of the Beat Awards, has been playing shows in support of his fantastic 2016 album, Apache.

    French Quarter Fest will be the largest showcase of Louisiana music in the world, with over 1,700 musicians performing at the event. As usual, this year’s incarnation will be free and open to the public.

    The final French Quarter Festival schedule—with stages and times—will be unveiled in March.

        I am not sure if Aurora is still doing Rory Danger. I thought I saw something about them looking for someone else to fill her spot.
