Dive into a musical gathering that combines the fervor of a gospel hymn with the joy of a jazz parade, bringing together some of the most iconic artists from New Orleans and around the world. Founded in 1970 by George Wein, Quint Davis and Allison Miner, Jazz Fest gathers an average of half a million fans every year who come to see performances by the likes of Leah Chase, Carole King and the Neville Brothers. This year, the Annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will run from April 29 through May 8, and features a line-up nothing short of legendary with performers including The Who, Stevie Nicks, Jimmy Buffet & the Coral Reefer Band and more!
Set less than 20 minutes away from the Old No. 77 Hotel, this even is a must-see for any NOLA visitor and offers a true taste of the city. Get more information about the event and lineup here as well as live updates via Instagram.
