With temps hovering in the low 80s and a mostly cooperative Mama Nature, Festival International 2014 was once again a brilliant swell of sound and color, of reunions and introductions, dancing blisters onto feet — those inevitable “festival moments” that etch themselves into that corner of our minds where fond memories reside. With attendance hovering around 400,000 over its five glorious days, FIL 2014 proved again that Lafayette and the world can get together and throw one hell of a party, as IND contributing photographer Danny Landry capably captures in these pics.

A reporter for the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, sent to cover her first FIL, summed it up nicely: “Festival International ... offered up dancing, both funky and embarrassing; low cost; a lot of shade; experiences with people from all over the world, including many from French Canada; a great place to stand with a view of the stage, wherever you may be; and, of course, the music of the world.”
