Hogs For The Cause Announces 2016 Lineup


Hogs For The Cause 2016 will feature a diverse mix of musical acts performing as many teams compete in the High on the Hog pork cookoff at City Park’s Festival Grounds on April 1 and 2 in New Orleans. The purpose of Hogs for the Cause is to provide aid and relief of those variable expenses and economic burdens which families face while their child is being treated for pediatric brain cancer.

Today, event organizers have announced the Hogs For The Cause 2016 Music Lineup. Greensky Bluegrass, Shovels & Rope and Deer Tick are a top a lineup that also includes such acts as Dragon Smoke, Tab Benoit, Twiddle and Big Sam’s Funky Nation. The complete lineup can be found below.

“Each year we are excited to be able to bring in sought after musical talent from around the country,” said Becker Hall, Director and Co-Founder of Hogs for the Cause. “It’s a testament to how important our event is to the music scene, as well as the foodie world. Presale tickets sell fast and we are thrilled at how big the crowds grow each year.” Advance tickets go on sale on the Hogs for the Cause website beginning Tuesday, December 8 through January 10, 2016.
