After two years in New Orleans, Bayou Country Superfest will return to Baton Rouge's Tiger Stadium in 2019.

Bayou Country Superfest returns to LSU's Tiger Stadium this weekend for its 10th edition.

The two-day country music festival will be headlined by Kenny Chesney on Saturday, May 25, and Jason Aldean on Sunday, May 26, and will feature performances by Florida Georgia Line, Dan + Shay, Cassadee Pope, Kane Brown, Brett Young, Chase Rice and Parish County Line.

This is the first Bayou Country Superfest in Tiger Stadium since 2016, when renovations to the stadium on LSU's campus pushed the festival to New Orleans for 2017 and 2018. So expect a return to form for the festival — along with the music, the grounds around Tiger Stadium will be open all day for tailgating, just like at an LSU football game (for Superfest tailgating rules and guidelines, click here).
