It may be called Jazz Fest but its bill stretches far and wide beyond the genre.
Lizzo, Demi Lovato, H.E.R., Foo Fighters, Stevie Nicks, Norah Jones, The Beach Boys, Ludacris, Wu-Tang Clan, and Ziggy Marley are just a selection of the biggest acts expected to grace the stages of New Orlean’s premier festival, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, aka Jazz Fest.
The massive, multi-weekend event will be making its return over two weekends in early October to bring a bunch of music, food, and art to the southern city. The aforementioned stars will be joined by hundreds of additional music acts (and yes, there are jazz acts), as well as cooks, craftspeople and artisans from all over the world.
Below, everything you need to know about attending the New Orleans festival.
