Free Fridays have become a favorite for New Orleans locals and tourists alike. Every Friday throughout the summer months Tipitina’s offers a local all-star lineup, and the best part is — it’s FREE!
Doors open at 9 pm and the show starts at 10. We recommend getting there a little early for doors at 9 pm, Free Fridays tend to pack the house. After all, you are right in the middle of Uptown at one of the most well-recognized venues in the city.
Now that Galactic are the newest owners of Tipitina’s, the Free Fridays lineup is STACKED. Just to name a few, Johnny Sketch & the Dirty Notes, Khris Royal, and Naughty Professor are all on the lineup. Just about every weekend has artists that you could easily pay $40-50 to see headlining somewhere else in the city.
So support local music! Support local venues and get to Tipitina’s Free Fridays!
