Fiya Fest 2014 | Maceo, Headhunters Super Jam & More

Last year Fiyawerx Productions presented the first annual Fiya Fest, which featured an insane lineup. But they've upped the ante for the 2014 installment as the just- announced lineup is ridiculous. Fiya Fest 2014: A Crawfish Boil and Benefit for the Roots of Music is scheduled for Friday, May 2 at Mardi Gras World in New Orleans.

Fiya Fest is known for interesting pairings and the 2014 lineup will be headlined by a number of them including Maceo Parker with Eric Krasno, Nikki Glaspie, Nigel Hall, Calvin Turner and The Shady Horns, a band dubbed "GRITTS" featuring George Porter Jr, Roosevelt Collier, Ivan Neville, Tony Hall, Terrence Houston, Big Sam and Sam Kininger and "The Headhunters Superjam" with Mike Clark, Bill Summers, Donald Harrison, Bernie Worrell, Blackbyrd McKnight , Fred Wesley, Karl Denson and Doug Wimbish. Also on the bill for the full-day, three-stage event are "The Midnite Disturbers" with Stanton Moore, Big Sam, Ben Ellman, Mark Mullins, Shamarr Allen, Kevin O'Day and Matt Perrine featuring Rahzel, Brandon TAZ Nierderhauer and The Roots of Music as well as The Revivalists with Mike Dillon, Carly Meyers, Pete Murano, Jen Hartswick, Khris Royal and Maggie Koerner plus Frequinox with Donald Harrison, Stanton Moore, Robert Mercurio, Robert Walter and Will Bernard.

Other acts set to perform at Fiya Fest 2014 include The Nth Power, The Mike Dillon Band, Eddie Roberts' West Coast Sounds, 101 Runners, Corey Henry's Treme Funktet and The Heard with The Houseman. The lineup also features Eric Lindell, Clint Maedgen, Marco Benevento, David Shaw, Cyril Neville, Corey Glover, Eric McFadden, Papa Mali and Billy Iuso and DJ Logic manning the decks.
