NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Safety is Highest Priority as Hogs for the Cause Sets Dates for June. Tickets on Sale Now.
One year ago today, Hogs made the hard decision to cancel what was shaping up to be the most impactful festival yet. Hogs for the Cause festival returns this June 4 and 5. To keep it safe for the fans, staff, teams, and artists, things are going to look a little different this year:
The festival site has moved to allow UNO Lakefront Arena to continue to operate a COVID testing site. This year we’ll be at the outdoor, 15-acre Plaquemines Parish Government Facility in Belle Chasse.
All guests, staff, and artists will be expected to follow the current safety policy, including wearing face coverings, temperature checks, and screenings. Hogs for the Cause has implemented measures that exceed all recommended guidelines by state and local health organizations to create a safe environment. The festival will routinely update its safety policy on the advice of its partners at Children’s Hospital New Orleans and LCMC Health, Louisiana Department of Health, Louisiana State Fire Marshal, State of Louisiana, and Plaquemines Parish. You can review the full policy at HogsFest.org/Safety.
The festival coordinators are limiting ticket sales to 25 percent of the capacity restrictions, far below the state recommended 50 percent limit.
Your Hogs wristband will be mailed to you to avoid box office lines. This is included in your ticket. In fact, this year, they have NO TICKET FEES whatsoever. They also have a payment plan to help spread out the cost over a few months.
They add in the press release, should the festival have to cancel due to a change in Louisiana’s phase status, all tickets will be refunded.
To minimize contact, the event will be cashless, and all food and drink will be paid for by scanning your RFID wristband.
As always, the teams are the star of the show bringing the bacon, but the event wouldn’t be the same without the stellar lineup of musical talent! The Friday lineup includes Robert Randolph and the Family Band featuring The Soul Rebels and Brandon ‘Taz’ Niederauer, The Iceman Special, plus more to be announced. On Saturday, the lineup includes Old Crow Medicine Show, Andy Frasco & The UN, Travers Brothership, Sweet Crude, plus more to be announced.
The release notes that the event is made possible by the dedicated sponsors: Childrens Hospital New Orleans and LCMC Health, Scariano Foods, Capital One, Southern Eagle, Bud Light, Michelob Ultra, Tito’s, Phelps Dunbar, Irpino Avin Hawkins, and Boucaner.
