LAFAYETTE, La. - Downtown Rising announced Tuesday that Cold War Kids will headline this year's concert at Parc International.

Downtown Rising is an annual summer celebration in the heart of downtown Lafayette featuring a national act to celebrate downtown’s growth and changes of the year.

One of the opening acts is Lafayette's own Givers.

DJ Digital will return this year to open up the show.

Early bird tickets go on sale March 6 at

The gates open at 5pm and the event concludes at 10pm. Food and beverages will be available for purchase on site.

Last year’s inaugural Downtown Rising featured The Revivalists, Sweet Crude and DJ Digital.

Unlike Festival International and Downtown Alive, Downtown Rising is a ticketed event. Last year's proceeds helped those in the music industry.
