New Orleans JazzFest lineup announced!
I lived in New Orleans for 4 years and I always looked forward to Jazz Fest every spring. Last year I made the trip back down to N'awlins and decided I would try to make it every year for this great festival. Spending time in New Orleans during JazzFest is really the quintessential New Orleans experience. Today they announced the music lineup for this year, with notable headliners like Arcade Fire, Wilco, Lauryn Hill, Robert Plant, Michael Franti and the Spearheads, and John Legend and The Roots. Let's not forget about the regulars who frequent the festival almost every year like, Galactic, Rebirth Brass Band, Allen Toussaint, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue and Kermit Ruffins & The Barbecue Swingers. Don't forget to check out late night shows at some of New Orleans greatest music venues like One Eyed Jack's, Tipitinas, Howlin' Wolf, and House of Blues. If there's one music festival not to miss this year, it's the New Orleans Jazz Festival.
