Miranda Lambert (pictured), Blake Shelton, Brooks & Dunn and Hank Williams Jr. headline Bayou Country Superfest, which in its eighth year moves to New Orleans from Baton Rouge.

  The festival kicks off with a free concert featuring young singer- songwriters Easton Corbin, Eric Paslay and Dylan Scott in Champions Square at 7 p.m. Friday, May 26. Champions Square also is the site of Fan Fest, which includes free concerts beginning at noon on Saturday and Sunday. There also are artist meet-and-greet sessions, appearances by country music DJs and more.

  Two nights of concerts in the Superdome feature some of the Billboard Hot Country charts' biggest stars. Lambert, Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flatts, Brett Eldredge, Jon Pardi and Chris Lane perform on Saturday. Sunday's lineup includes Shelton, Thomas Rhett, Williams, Old Dominion, Dan + Shay and Maddie & Tae.

  There is a limited number of RV parking spaces available. Overnight parking is not allowed in other Superdome parking lots.

  Bayou Country Superfest was created by Quint Davis' Festival Productions Inc., which produces the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Renovations at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge prompted relocation of the festival.

  Single day tickets are $45-$200 plus fees, and VIP packages are available.
