Founded in 1992 by New Orleans native Stephen Rehage, Rehage Entertainment (RE:) combines the magic of live events with emerging technologies and urban science to create interactive entertainment experiences. From concept development to execution, RE: has spent the last 15 years making public assembly an art form.

Throughout that time, New Orleans has become one of the most popular venues for the company. In addition to a number of national productions, several local events fill the company’s portfolio, including: the Essence Music Festival, vmXperince New Orleans, Make It Right’s “Pink Project,” and the Voodoo Music Experience, the company’s first original production.

“I think down in New Orleans, and Louisiana in general, it’s a festival state. There are a lot more festivals here than anywhere else in the country. It makes my life lot easier.”- Stephen Rehage
