New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Music Fest

(JazzFest) The 2014 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival runs from April 25-May 4, 2014.

Bigger than Coachella (Indio), bigger than the California Music Fest (Ventura)? At least bigger than Stagecoach (Indio). More traditional than Bonnaroo (Nashville) or Wanderlust (Lake Tahoe)? A lot tamer than Burning Man (Nevada desert), the yoga hippie fests the readers of LA Yoga Magazine attend (Joshua Tree, California), the traveling West Coast Festival, and the twin Made in America concerts by Jay Z and Beyonce.

The original "Jazz Fest" started in 1970 and continues to this day: "Jazz Fest" is a showcase if the most important names in music locally and nationally. Celebrating four and a half decades of musical and cultural memories, the musical fest stands alone in presenting high caliber artists in varied genres like rock, traditional and contemporary jazz, blues, Cajun gospel, blues, R&B, country, zydeco, and much more.

Arcade Fire, Phish, Vampire Weekend, Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin), Sixto Rodriguez, Santana, Eric Clapton, Christina Aguilera, Robin Thicke, The String Cheese Incident, Aaron Neville, Branford Marsalis, John Hiatt, John Fogerty, Foster the People, Better Than Ezra, Chaka Khan, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Alabama Shakes, Al Jarreau, Soul Rebels, Public Enemy, and more. - -
