There are big festivals, and there’s the New Orleans Jazz Festival. Jazz Fest is always one of the bigger draws of the festival season, and 2014 is shaping up to be bigger than ever for the fest. Bruce Springsteen and Eric Clapton top a bill that also includes co-headliners Phish, Arcade Fire, Santana, and Christina Aguilera.
Also featured on the massive bill are the likes of Robert Plant, John Fogerty, The Avett Brothers, String Cheese Incident, Alabama Shakes, Anders Osborne, The Mavericks, and many, many more. As always, the festival also provides time slots for many of New Orleans’ finest local groups, in case you want to get a taste of the local musical flavors.
This year’s New Orleans Jazz Festival takes place over two weekends (April 25-27 and May 1-4) at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans. You can watch a video announcement of the festival lineup below:
