If you didn't make it over to the 24th annual Crawfish Music Festival at the Coast Coliseum in Biloxi last week, you're in luck.

The fun featuring midway rides, live music, food and more is back for its final weekend through Sunday.

Organizers say this year's music lineup is perhaps the most diverse ever, including last weekend's top acts X Ambassadors, Travis Tritt, North Mississippi Allstars, The Revivalists and Flow Tribe.

This weekend's lineup includes Friday's headliner Frankie Ballard at 9:45 p.m. along with Devin Dawson, Lanco and Kelsea Ballerini.

And on Saturday, music will start at 2 p.m. with Big Al & the Heavyweights, followed by Christian Serpas & Ghost Town, Greg Martinez, The Last Bandoleros and Chris Janson. Headlining will be humor and parody act Bobby Bones & the Raging Idiots at 9:15 p.m.

On Sunday, rap artists Juvenile (7:45 p.m.) and Mystikal (6:15) will raise the roof for the finale. The day will begin at 3:15 p.m. with Yungg V and Black Medallion.

Throughout the festival, the Craft Beer Garden will offer adult fun with beer, live music, karaoke and corn hole. There also are carnival rides and games for all ages. Arm bands for nonstop rides are offered for $25 from 5 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 1 to 8 p.m. Sunday.

Festival hours are 1 to 11 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

General festival admission, which includes concert admission, is $15 for adults, $6 for ages 6-12, and free for children under age 6. A special admission price of $39 includes reserved seating or standing near the front of the stage, as available.

Tickets also may be purchased through www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000; both may include additional fees. All concerts are rain or shine. Parking is $5.
