Are you heading to the Mississippi Coast Coliseum Crawfish Music Festival? A two-weekend festival with more than 25 acts can be a bit overwhelming. Don’t worry, we’ve listed everything you need to know beforehand to make sure you have an awesome time enjoying music, crawfish, craft beer and so much more!


Sing along!                  

No matter what music you’re into, you are sure to hear some tunes you enjoy at the Crawfish Music Festival. From country to rap and everything in between, the festival has it all. If you don’t purchase reserved seating, make sure you arrive early to grab a standing room only spot to watch your favorite artists.

In addition to big names performing on the Bud Light Main Stage, local artists can be found on the acoustic stage in the craft beer garden. Be sure to plan which artists you want to see ahead of time. Check out the full line-up here.


Bring your appetite!

If we could only give one piece of advice, it would be to come hungry! There will be a ton of great food options, but most importantly a ton of crawfish. Hot boiled crawfish, crawfish pies, crawfish etouffee and so much more.


Come thirsty!

The craft beer garden will be open every day of the festival. This is an absolute must-see. If you want to try some local Mississippi Gulf Coast brews, our very own Chandeleur Brewing Company and Crooked Letter Brewing Company will be there!


The whole family is welcome!  

Don’t think that this event is adults-only. Children are more than welcome!  When the kids aren’t enjoy music or stuffing their faces with crawfish, they can enjoy rides & prize games. You can pay one price and your kids can enjoy all of the rides all day long!


Come prepared!

Tickets can be bought in advance, so reserve yours now! You can pay at the door, but prices increase by $2 per ticket.


Also, this festival is entirely outdoors, so remember to bring sunscreen, chairs, a rain jacket (just in case), etc. The festival continues rain or shine! Event parking is $5, so don’t forget to bring a little extra cash!


This award-winning event has been on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for more than two decades, and it is one that you don’t want to miss! If you have any additional questions that we didn’t cover, let us know in the comments.
