Tiger Stadium to Take Hiatus from 'Superfest'

BATON ROUGE – A series of planned offseason enhancements to Tiger Stadium will prevent LSU from serving as the host for the Bayou Country Superfest for the next couple of years, the school announced.

Tiger Stadium is set to undergo renovations and updates to concession stands, bathrooms as well as other venue improvements which will take place during the offseason following the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

“It’s been a great event for our community, LSU and Tiger Stadium,” vice chancellor and director of athletics Joe Alleva said. “We are in a position where we have to make these necessary improvements to Tiger Stadium and the only time that we can do this is during the offseason.”

Tiger Stadium has hosted the Bayou Country Superfest on Memorial Day weekend each year since 2010.

“We thank Joe Alleva and everyone at LSU for being such welcoming hosts for seven years of the Bayou Country Superfest, and for helping create an event that has drawn hundreds of thousands of fans from across the country to Baton Rouge to celebrate Memorial Day weekend,” Quint Davis, Producer/Director of Bayou Country Superfest, said. “We’ll explore alternatives to keep presenting what has become one of the biggest annual country music festivals in the South. In the meantime, Go Tigers!”
