Flambeau Fest producer discusses increased security measures
BATON ROUGE - The Flambeau Fest has been canceled Saturday, but will continue Sunday.
Passes for Saturday will be honored Sunday.
Main Stage Schedule Sunday:
Clare Dunn 12:30-1:15pm
A Thousand Horses 1:45-2:30pm

Sam Hunt 4:30-5:45pm
Hank Williams Jr. 6:15-7:30pm

The changes come due to Nate entering the Gulf of Mexico this weekend.
It's been a bizarre week ahead of the festival. The weather concerns just the latest worry. The inaugural music event is scheduled a week after a shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas.
Security policies changed and there will be more safety measures at the Ascension Parish event this weekend, officials said earlier in the week.
