The full music lineup for the 48th Annual Red River Revel Arts Festival has been released.

During a press conference Tuesday, June 11, Red River Revel, Executive Director, Logan Lewis announced the lineup as well as its official poster artwork for the 2024 Red River Revel.

This year's poster artwork is by New Orleans-based artist Jason Rodriguez and features vibrant colors and symbols unique to our state by the Dia de los Muertos traditional Mexican holiday.

“The 'Spirit of Louisiana' piece was inspired by the rich history, vibrant culture, and breathtaking beauty that surrounds us in the South,” said Rodriguez. “Drawing inspiration from the Spanish influence and iconic imagery of the region, we set out to create a dreamy landscape that also captures the weird essence of our art.”

The arts festival is set to return to Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport Sept. 28 and last until Oct. 6. This highly anticipated festival will deliver stunning art installations, programs and activities.

In addition, the Red River Revel has a stellar lineup featuring national, regional and local artists of various genres and styles for all ages.
