It's been a few years since the Cajun Heartland State Fair at the Cajundome has had big-time live entertainment and we're happy to announce that those concerts are back.

The Cajundome is presenting the Cajun Heartland Music Festival on May 27-29, 2021. However, the live music will have a different feel. For the first time ever, the Cajundome will have concerts inside for the Cajun Heartland State Fair. (Inside = cool temps!)

If country music is what you fancy, then you have an opportunity to enjoy a plethora of great national and local talent over two nights.

Who's playing and when?

One of the hottest bands of the '90s and '00s, Diamond Rio, will be headlining on Thursday, May 27. Newcomer, and Louisiana native, Lainey Wilson will open the show in addition to Acadiana favorite Blaine Roy & Second Wind.


Then on Saturday, May 29th, it's Mr. Yee Yee himself, Granger Smith (featuring Earl Dibbles, Jr.), topping the bill. Tik Tok breakout star Priscilla Block makes her Acadiana debut opening the show along with Clay Cormier & the Highway Boys.


There's also great live music on Friday night with Cupid & Friends putting another fantastic show. The lineup includes Cupid, Roi Anthony, DJ Jubilee, Partners N' Crime, Mr. Phat, Nebu, and Annsoul with Uncle Luck hosting the night.
