&8220Two days is plenty,&8221 said Gary Weinberger of Red Mountain Entertainment, which books and runs the show.

&8220It works well, and we&8217re able to keep the ticket price at a competitive amount.&8221 Advance tickets sold for $20 per day or $35 for both days they&8217ll be $25 per day at the gates. &8220Last year, we had about 47,000 people on site for the two days,&8221 he said. the history When Red Mountain Entertainment first got involved, about a dozen years ago, the Crawfish Boil was still a one-day event, evolving from a backyard party put on 18 years ago by Aaron and Phyllis Beam. Harking back to his days at LSU, Aaron brought in 50 pounds of boiled crawfish to entertain some friends, and as an afterthought, added a few live bands. Prior to Red Mountain Entertainment&8217s involvement, the Crawfish Boil featured mostly local bands with the occasional big-name act headlining. In 2003, the show expanded to two days, and in 2004, Sister Hazel, Collective Soul and Cowboy Mouth drew record crowds. Acts over the past few years have included The Wallflowers, Live, Tonic, Blues Traveler, Hootie and the Blowfish, Better than Ezra, Blue October, Presidents of the USA, Barenaked Ladies, Spin Doctors, Fuel, Fergie, 3 Doors Down, T-Pain, Seether and Candlebox. &8220That along with 25,000 pounds of crawfish.&8221
