BATON ROUGE - A lack of local money could make this the last year the Bayou Country Superfest is in Baton Rouge.

The Parish Metro Council voted not to include $300,000 in matching funds for the festival in this year's budget.

Today, festival director Quint Davis told News 2 a future lack of funding could cause them to look for another venue elsewhere.

"The 2012 festival is not set in stone," he said.

News 2's Kristy Davis will have more on the festival's future tonight on News 2 at 10.
