Local Artists at a Local Festival
Power Up in the Gulf: Frontlines Rising, a 350.org event that supports environmental causes, will take place this year on Friday, November 3 at Louis Armstrong Park. Big Freedia, Mannie Fresh, Ha Sizzle, and many more artists are scheduled to perform for this event. With live music, inspirational speeches, food trucks, and art activations, Power Up in the Gulf will be a good time in support of a great cause.
Power Up in the Gulf will raise awareness about the rapid proliferation of methane gas (commonly known as LNG), as well as the exportation of plants in the Gulf Coast that cause irreversible damage to Louisiana's land, waterways, and people on the coasts. Those who RSVP on the official event page will be sent the exact address. The event is free and open to the general public.
It is expected that over 1,000 people will attend and demand a stop to corporation subsidies, as well as to condemn any environmental injustices in the state of Louisiana such as entire parishes that have not had drinking water for three months.
Power Up in the Gulf will not only feature live music performances but also DJ sets by DJ Legatron and will be MC'd by comedian Kamari Stevens. Special frontline speakers will be Davante Lewis, Roishetta Ozane, and Breon Robinson, with even more to be announced soon.
