If you weren't able to attend Festival International this year, one local organization is giving you the opportunity to watch what you missed.
AOC Community Media will premiere its footage of Festival International 2013 main-stage performances during Fest Week July 1-7 on AOC 1 (Cox channel 15 or LUS channel 3). AOC will air three episodes each day during prime-time hours, culminating in an all-day Festival re-cap on Sunday, July 7.
During the five-day festival in April 2013, AOC captured nearly 20 hours of live performances in high definition.
"Recording Festival International is a true privilege to us because we know the world-wide reach of this unique festival," said Ed Bowie, executive director of AOC. "Giving Acadiana residents the chance to relive their experiences or see what they may have missed is something we look forward to all year long, and thanks to our nearly 50 volunteers, we are able to accomplish this."
