The 22nd Annual Crawfish Music Festival will be April 17th through April 20th and April 24th through April 27th. The festival will include a crawfish cook off that will offer a $4,000 reward. Headliners this year include Three Days Grace, Dustin Lynch, and the Charlie Daniels Band. Organizers say the Charlie Daniels Band has a special connection after Hurricane Katrina. Matt McDonnell, the Assistant Director of the Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention Center, says, "So this is the very first time we have had him back since 2006 and when we called him, he was more than willing and very excited to be a part of it, so we are going to close down our 22nd year with the Charlie Daniels Band." Public tickets for the event go on sale this Friday at 10:00 a.m. Admission is free to the public on Thursdays and general admission is $15.
