*Editor’s Note: While there are no travel restrictions to New Orleans due to the Covid-19, out of an abundance of caution and consideration for staff, vendors, performers, and guests, Wednesday at the Square has decided to cancel the entire 2020 spring concert series. Please check the event website for details and updated information.
Most people have to wait until the weekend to see and hear their favorite local artists perform. But you probably know by now that New Orleans folks aren’t like most people. We expect and get our music every day of the week. And this time of year, it’s all about Wednesday nights.
Wednesday At The Square, the popular (and free!) concert series hosted every year by the Young Leadership Council, returns to Lafayette Square this year with a stacked lineup. The series kicks off on March 11 with Flow Tribe, plus Dave Jordan and the NIA as the opening acts.
Other headliners for the 10-week series include artists from New Orleans and the surrounding region. Check out the lineup below.
