Finally, the cat is out of the bag… Downtown Rising 2020 will feature the indie rock band Cold War Kids! The show will take place at Parc International in downtown Lafayette on Thursday, May 28th.
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 acts 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 Thursday, May 28th, gates open at 5 PM. Be there for the return of Downtown Rising, brought to you by 1063 Radio Lafayette, Social Entertainment, and our presenting partner The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns!
