Organizers Thursday noted that rain or mud caused issues on three of the festival’s seven days this year.
Last year an estimated 450,000 people attended _ the highest since 2003. Those numbers were boosted by large crowds at the Fair Grounds for Bruce Springsteen and the Eagles.
WWL-TV reports the festival saw its largest attendance in 2001 when an estimated 618,000 people showed up. That included a one-day record when Mystikal and the Dave Matthews Band headlined.
