You may recall Flambeau Fest that was held October of 2017 in Gonzalez. The planned two-day festival turned into one day due to Hurricane Nate.

Sam Hunt, Hank Williams Jr. and Lynyrd Skynyrd were among the headliners.

As you can imagine, the organizers of the event had quite a task on their collective hands dealing with refunds and make goods.

Many ticketholders from last year could choose upgraded tickets for the next festival. The 2018 Flambeau Fest did not happen, and many of those ticket holders were upset with the lack of communication.

However, good news is on the way. Plans are underway for Flambeau Fest 2.


Additionally, the following email was sent out to last year's ticket holders that were promised upgrades for the next festival:
