Seminal New Orleans band Galactic and legendary music venue Tipitina’s are joining forces this September for the inaugural year of The Landing- a music festival taking place at the South Shore Harbor. Just minutes outside of downtown and located on the coast of Lake Pontchartrain, this two day festival will bring some of the nation’s greatest acts, as well as showcase local talent that Galactic and Tipitina’s have handpicked to perform. The Landing will feature two stages, food trucks, a beer garden, performances from local area marching bands and nightly fireworks displays. 

“It’s so exciting for Galactic to have our own festival” says Robert Mercurio, bassist and founding member of the group. “We have played hundreds of festivals and wish to bring all of the best parts of those back home to New Orleans.” 

Since opening in 1977, Tipitina’s has become an essential part of the New Orleans music scene. Tipitina's said that they are “excited about the launch of this partnership and the promise of what this shared vision can achieve.” A portion of the proceeds from the festival will be donated to the Tipitina's Foundation, an organization dedicated to protecting and promoting music in Louisiana. 


The Landing Festival is an all ages event. All children age 2 or younger will be admitted free of charge to the festival. All children from the age of 2 to 10 years old will be $5 at the gate each day. Any child 10 years of age or older will require a full price ticket to the festival.
