An Event You Don’t Want to Miss
For the second year, Swisher Sweets is bringing their Artist Project to the Big Easy! Last year’s event was headlined by Grammy nominated, rap/hip artist Cardi B. She performed along with Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), Chanel West Coast, DJ Mannie Fresh, and more to a SOLD OUT crowd at the Joy Theater. They closed out 2017 with a bang! This year, Swisher Sweets is returning their Artist Project NOLA Takeover to the Crescent City with Gucci Mane, MGK, Fetty Wap, and Desiigner at the Orpheum Theater.
