The musical lineup for the 2015 Go Live Music Fest and Car Show on Saturday, May 30, in Cassidy Park is set.

The event, which is free to the public, is scheduled from noon to 8 p.m.

Activities also include a bike giveaway and talent show. Contestants can register for the event on the day of the show. The car show begins at 2 p.m.

Organizers of the event are Dracus “D-Star” Sartin and Derrick “Gator” Peters. They said the event is their small way of giving back to the community. Peters is a local barber while Sartin is a promoter and rapper.

The entertainment bill includes Bogalusa hip-hop and R&B artists Goldmouth, Jolly Payne, Dat Johnson Boy, Buddy Love, Young Prince & Ebony Songbird and Street Commission M.I.L.K and Varnado’s Big Jinx Young Yosi. Other artists include Matrix, Kenneth Faure, Swaggarakkz, and Dat Boy Bryson. Bogalusa Comedy Club, Concrete Eternal Records and Music Life Entertainment will also be in the house.

The Bogalusa High School marching band is scheduled to perform at 3 p.m. Sartin said he plans to perform at the event.

“I’ve been trying to help the younger talent in Bogalusa and to be a big brother to them and give them insight,” Sartin previously said.

“We’re trying to bring something positive for the city,” Peters said. “For the parents who can’t take a vacation because they have four or five kids and can’t pay for a vacation, this is something for them.”

To register for the car show, contact Raashad “Big Unc” Bickham at 985-735-7343 or visit Big Unc’s Cuts and Styles at 811 E. Fourth St.

Judges for the car and talent show include Bogalusa’s Cedric Hill, Franklinton’s Li’l Pokey and Li’l Bossie producer JMAN.

The promoters said a KidsZone is also scheduled to be on site. It will be hosted by Bogalusa High School’s Dazzlin’ Divas.

“We’re trying to make a positive statement not only in Bogalusa, but the parish as well,” Peters said.

“All we’re asking from the community is to come out and have a great time,” Sartin said.
