Music Box Village (OUTDOORS)

4557 N Rampart St
New Orleans, LA

The Music Box Village is a place where play, imagination, experimentation, collaboration, community and hard work come together as a whimsical village of artist-made interactive “musical houses.” Each installation is inspired by the unique musical and architectural culture of our home city of New Orleans, and represents a collaborative process between artists based here and abroad. Our one-of-a-kind art site hosts intensive artist residencies, performances, panels, and welcomes visitors for exploration and play.

Music Box Village is the flagship project of New Orleans Airlift, an artist-driven non-profit organization whose mission is to collaborate to inspire wonder, connect communities, and foster opportunities through arts education and the creation of experimental public artworks.

Upcoming Shows

3-6pm | Red Bull Street Kings is a showcase and competition celebrating the brass band traditions of New Orleans, merging the rich musical legacy of New Orleans Streets with its progressive hip-hop culture. The four competing bands go head-to-head, and for the first time in the event’s history, one of the rounds will challenge each band to collaborate with a local hip hop artist. Each round is judged by a panel of leaders in New Orleans music and culture, who score the bands on stage appearance, material, energy, musicality, and innovation. The band left standing after three rounds of competition is crowned the winner and receives a grand prize. Competitors include Bix Six Brass Band, Young Pinstripe Brass Band, Kings of Brass, Sporty's Brass Band, Stone Cold Jzzle, Treety, Alfred Banks, and $leazyEZ. Musical Director - Trombone Shorty, Host - Downtown Lesli Brown, DJ - Kelly Green.
