Mardi Gras is a grand occasion for all in the city of new orleans. People from all over the world come to the Big Easy to experience the age-old traditions of Mardi Gras. Besides all of the parades, king cakes, and bar-hopping is a golden nugget of an event: Fleur de Lit. Fleur de Lit is the epitome of lit for electronic music lovers, whether they be local or tourists.

This year, the event boasts headliners Getter (2.9) and G Jones (2.10). Opening for Getter on Friday is artists Klutch and Kidd Love. On Saturday, sfam and TVBOO are slated to open for G Jones. Most of these artists are New Orleans natives and have learned all the ins and outs of surviving Mardi Gras.

Get the most out of your Mardi Gras week with tips from your Fleur de Lit openers!


New Orleans native Klutch is no stranger to Mardi Gras and all the exciting activities surrounding it. He frequents Republic NOLA often with electrifying performances that get the crowd pumped.

What Mardi Gras tips does Klutch have for you?

  • Don’t be afraid to talk to strangers.
  • Its a marathon, not a sprint. Although we do love to sprint through the marathon anyways.
  • Be kind, thoughtful, and considerate. Southern hospitality is a real thing, and it can take you to amazing places while you’re in town.


New Orleans duo sfam is known around the scene for keeping the party going! These two exude so much energy into the crowd, never skipping a beat. They have some very important tips for first-timers to New Orleans that are here to experience more than just what Mardi Gras has to offer.

“Never take shots from a shot girl on bourbon. After you take em you owe her bout 75 bucks.” – Michael, sfam

Other notable mentions from Michael & Jacob:

  • Go to Parkway for the best poboys [in the city]
  • Hit up Bud’s Broiler when very drunk at 3 am
  • Go to Frenchmen Street instead of bourbon
  • Go to dat dawg
  • Stay with your homies and avoid all dark areas


Though TVBOO is not a New Orleans local, he is excited to be spending his first year opening for G Jones! For his very first Mardi Gras ever, TVBOO is “really looking forward to all the different people in the city at shows. [I am] also looking forward to introducing some music to some new ears.”

“Mardi Gras in New Orleans is legendary and people from all over the world come here to party and have a good time.” – TVBOO
