Downtown Rising is back featuring indie rock band Cold War Kids! The show will take place at Parc International in downtown Lafayette on Friday, May 28th, 2021! So plan to kick off your Memorial Day weekend with us!
Tickets are available now at SocialEntertainment.net! Front of Stage is $50 and General Admission is $25.
The concert was originally scheduled to take place on November 19th but was postponed due to COVID-19.
If you want a little back story on what this annual summer party is all about, Downtown Rising’s mission is the physical, economic and cultural revitalization of our downtown district, as well as preserving its important place as the center of life in Acadiana. It’s a single-day music festival that celebrates this renewed life that Lafayette’s downtown area is experiencing, featuring a national music act in the heart of Downtown Lafayette. Last year we brought in The Revivalists, and Parc International was packed with friends, neighbors, and out of towners all gathered around the stage singing, dancing, and making memories together. It was a beautiful experience, and we can’t wait to do it all over again this year.
This year we have brought in Cold War Kids from Long Beach, CA to headline the event. You’ve likely heard a good many of their songs already just from listening to 1063 Radio Lafayette, here are some of our favorites:
We are also thrilled to announce our opening act as well! Lafayette’s own indie-pop group Givers will be our opening act, who you may recognize from their performances at Festival International and Downtown Alive in previous years.
Get ready for an amazing evening at Parc International on Friday, May 28th, gates open at 5 PM. Be there for the return of Downtown Rising, brought to you by 106Three Radio Lafayette, Social Entertainment, and our presenting partner The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns!
