A&E news, Feb. 26 

After drawing a record-breaking 252,000 in 2008, Riverfest is making sure that folks have room to breathe this year. The festival is shifting its boundaries eastward on the Little Rock side. The Budweiser stage, positioned, at least for the last several years, on the thin strip of lawn on North Shore Park in North Little Rock, will move to the Clinton Presidential Center grounds. And the Triple-S stage, long located on a parking lot at the western most edge of Riverfront Park, will replace the Budweiser Stage in North Little Rock. The teen activities will move across the river, too.

Executive Director DeAnna Korte says the new arrangement will give festival-goers more room to spread out, something organizers were mindful of after the bottleneck that ZZ Top and LL Cool J created in recent years in NLR.

The Budweiser Stage will face the library. Shannon says the positioning is, in part, a “safety issue” — to ward off potential gawkers driving over the I-30 bridge.

 

So far seven acts have been confirmed: 3 Doors Down, Jason Aldean, the B-52s, Gavin Rossdale, the Little River Band, Trout Fishing in America and Willie Nelson. Keep checking Rock Candy for updates.
