The Depot Pavilion Stage will feature performances from local dance groups, in addition to receiving a major upgrade with the all-new sports bar where patrons can watch football games and film screenings. The all-new Discovery Maker Zone will be located in the parking lot next to Sci-Port Discovery Center and The J. Bennett Johnston Waterway Regional Visitor Center and will include The Blue Cross/Blue Shield “DMZ” Stage. Performances include a talent show from local youngsters, interactive music experiences, a “Swifties” Fan Takeover, The Joanitones, Spinner Entertainment, and more. The Art Alley Stage returns after its debut in 2022 with evening performances by local singer songwriters from the region.
Trout Fishing in America returns to the Red River Revel with two performances. The duo is the songwriting collaboration of Keith Grimwood and Izra Idlet. For 45 years, their vibrant percussive sound and dynamic stage presence have cultivated a multi-generational fan base at performing arts centers, clubs, and music festivals all around the country. The duo has played the Red River Revel more than a dozen times over the years and 2023 marks their first return to the festival in 6 years. They will perform on the DMZ stage on September 30th and the Depot Stage on October 1.
The all-new Revel Sports Bar introduces a massive, tented space in the back of the Depot Pavilion with 8 widescreen televisions and seating area. A large video wall over the stage will be the perfect spot to catch the LSU Tigers, New Orleans Saints, and Dallas Cowboys games happening during festival hours. The video wall will also showcase Film Prize and Film Prize Jr screenings on October 4th for Prize Fest Takeover as well as a special film screening on October 5th for the Robinson Film Center Takeover.
