Produced by the Downtown Business Association, Live After Five (#LA5) is recognized as the longest running, most successful outdoor concert series in the history of Baton Rouge. It is estimated that in excess of 100,000 people attend each year.
There are eight shows in the Spring and eight in the Fall. The concerts are from 5pm-8pm at The Crest at Galvez Plaza in North Boulevard/Town Square.
Now, in its 17th season, LA5 was awarded the BEST COMMUNITY EVENT in the Greater Baton Rouge Area by 225 Magazine in 2014. With a consistent 8,000-person crowd each week, LA5 is now positioned as one of the premier outdoor concert series in the Nation. The community benefits are many as LA5 fans trek Downtown to eat, drink, dance, socialize and visit the many businesses located on the Baton Rouge Riverfront.
LA5 is not just a Downtown event, but a destination for the Greater Baton Rouge community, its surrounding parishes and beyond.
The concert is FREE, just bring your lawn chairs and dancing shoes, and be ready to start your weekend the Louisiana way!
