Festival Internation de Louisiane is 71 days away, but preparations have been underway since before last year's event was even over. In the next couple weeks, organizers will announce the full music lineup, but there are ways to get involved now. Brad Credeur joined Acadiana's Morning News this morning to talk about how you can become an "Amis du Festival".

Find more information on the Amis du Festival program HERE:

  • You showcase your support for what Festival International brings to the community: economic development, cultural education and celebration through performing arts
  • You bring the world’s culture to Lafayette
  • You help the Festival bring International Artists and Street Animation to perform as well as secure activities at the Festival children’s area (Scène des Jeunes)

By the way, the band we were talking about in the segment was Moonlight Benjamin.
