Superfest lineup out, Swift to be separate event
BATON ROUGE - Bayou Country Superfest organizers released their official talent lineup for the 2015 festival today, and it includes big-name performers like Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton...
But not Taylor Swift.
Promoters said Monday that Swift would headline Superfest in 2015, opening the festival Friday night. Today organizers said Swift would perform Friday night as planned at Tiger Stadium, but as a stand-alone event as part of her 1989 World Tour, not Superfest.
In 2014 Superfest expanded to Friday with special FanFest performances and free tailgating for fans. Those activities will be kept to Saturday and Sunday in 2015, according to festival organizers.
The full talent lineup for the 2015 Superfest is below. Ticket packages for Saturday and Sunday's events go on sale next Thursday, Nov. 13. Tickets for Swift's appearance in Baton Rouge can be purchased starting Thursday, Nov. 7.
