BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The first annual Bloom Music & Arts Festival is going to be held in downtown Baton Rouge at the new Levee Plaza. This new festival is free to the public and will strive to exemplify all forms of music Baton Rouge has to offer, such as rock, funk, blues, hip hop, and EDM.
The festivities begin with the official pre-party Permaculture Action Day on Friday, March 17 from 1 to 8 p.m. at 5925 Highland Rd. Topics and projects covered will include beekeeping (and other plant pollinators), seed planting, seed balls, compost build, compost tea brewing, biodynamics, vermicomposting, and yoga. Attendees are welcome to bring any tools they may want to use during the action day, and while contributions to the 5:30 p.m. potluck are encouraged, they are not mandatory.
The festival itself will start at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 18 following the St. Patrick's Day parade. Local acts performing include Bryce Williams, Boogie Long and the Blues Revolution, and Captain Green.
An after party, hosted by Kidd Love and K-Strikez, will be held at City Bar, located at 333 3rd St. in Baton Rouge, beginning at 10 p.m.
