Eat Tacos and Listen to Music
A new festival to the Baton Rouge scene, Bandito Fest is coming in hot with a debuting festival on June 22nd. Festival producer Eric Carnegie describes the planned Bandito Food & Music Festival as “a little bit country, a little bit rock-n-roll, a little bit south of the border and a little bit Americana.” They’ll serve tacos, BBQ, and rockin’ bands.
