Tulanians have at least one silver lining to look forward to as finals descend — although it might be more appropriate to call it a red lining. 

For the first time since 2019, Tulane University Crawfest will be back in full force on campus. An all-day event on April 23, centered around the Berger Family Lawn, Crawfest will feature live music from two stages, including artists like Dumpstaphunk and Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen. 

The organizers have also promised over 15,000 pounds of crawfish for anyone who wants them. Crawfest Executive Director Brett Franklin urged students to reserve their tickets before higher-than-usual demand sold them out.
