Looking for a fun, new festival to enjoy and keep the celebrations going in between the Jazz Fest weekends?
Live For Live Music has just announced that a brand-new NOLA festival, titled the Daze Between Festival, will be taking place on May 3 and 4, which is in between the two New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival weekends for this year. The fest will take place at Faubourg Brewery in New Orleans East.
This two-day event will bring together some of the best musicians in and out of New Orleans and who represent a variety of genres. The music lineup for Daze Between Fest is as follows:
· The String Cheese Incident x2
· Snarky Puppy
· Eric Krasno & Friends
· Rebirth Brass Band
· Nicholas Payton
· The Iceman Special
· Erica Falls
· Honey Island Swamp Band

Not only will there be Faubourg beer for attendees to enjoy during the festival, there will also be plenty of high-quality and traditional Louisiana cuisine, provided by Fete au Fete, will also be available, as well as a number of different local food vendors.
There will also be an artist village featuring a multitude of different local artisans and vendors, as well as famed local artist Frenchy. Not only will there be an on-site galley of his work, he will also be live painting during the event.
Frenchy's live painting will be a part of the festival's online auction, which will also feature other NOLA, as well as Grateful Dead, themed artwork, memorabilia, and experiences. The auction is hosted by the Rex Foundation, which was founded by the Grateful Dead in 1984. The foundation is known for writing grants to small nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to the arts, environment, education, sciences, indigenous culture, and social justice.
All funds raised during Daze Between Festival will go directly to NOLA nonprofits through the Rex Foundation's granting process. Anyone interested in directly donating can do so by texting DAZE to 202-858-1233 or by visiting rexfoundation.org/DazeBetweenNOLA.
Single and two-day general admission passes are available, as well VIP passes that offer a VIP parking pass, expedited entry, and access to exclusive bars, bathrooms, and a viewing area at the main stage. There's also a Super VIP pass, which includes all VIP perks, as well as one limited edition merch item, access to an exclusive Super VIP lounge, and exclusive beer tastings with a brewmaster inside Faubourg Brewery.
