Re:SET New Orleans
Off Beat Magazine reports, “LCD Soundsystem, boygenius and Steve Lacy [will] headline and lead a new artist-curated series tour called Re:SET.”
Re:SET was conceived as an artist- and fan-friendly alternative to the standard summer concert experience.
“The concept provides artists a respite from the cookie-cutter summer itinerary of sheds and amphitheaters,” the producers write. “Fans get a leisurely day that features full sets from every artist, on one stage with no conflicts.”
“The City of New Orleans is proud to be a part of this unique series. Our rich cultural heritage and the majesty of City Park will serve to create a magical experience for artists and fans. I can’t wait,” said Howie Kaplan, Director of Nighttime Economy in the City of New Orleans.
If Howie says it will be magical, we believe it will be.
With this concert series concept rolling out in eleven cities, perhaps the two concert production and ticketing giants (you know who you are) will begin to feel pestered by the Re:SET model.
We hope so.
Re:SET comes to the New Orleans Festival Grounds at City Park, Jun. 9-11, 2023.
