There are around 60 days left until Festival International gets underway in Lafayette.
Stages across the Downtown area will welcome musicians from 25 different countries to perform.
Among the acts are local and international favorites and several new groups making their Festival International debuts.
Marketing Coordinator Carly Viator says these acts are not to be missed.
A full festival lineup can be found here.
A great way to get involved with the Festival is to become an Amis du Festival.
Viator explains that there are several levels for every fan's budget. Donations received through the program support festival and keep the musical acts coming each year. Perks are also available for those who become an Amis.
Festival volunteer registration opens at the beginning of March.
Registration is open for the Courir du Festival 5k. The run/walk happens on the Saturday of Festival International.
Festival International de Louisiane runs from April 22 through April 26 in Downtown Lafayette.
