New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival
Next to Mardi Gras, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is the second-largest cultural event in the city known as The Big Easy. Due to the boost in commercial air traffic, many savvy travellers choose Stratos Jets to arrange charter flights to New Orleans for a convenient flying experience.
Held annually on the last weekend of April (Friday-Sunday) and the first weekend of May (Thursday-Sunday). The Jazz Fest, as it’s commonly known, happens at the Fair Grounds Race Course, a horse racing track in historic Mid-City.
If the 2017 lineup is anything to go by, this year's event should be nothing short of spectacular. Some of the acts to take the stage last year included:
- Stevie Wonder
- Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
- Kings of Leon
- Maroon 5
- Usher & The Roots
- Harry Connick Jr.
- Snoop Dogg
- Alabama Shakes
As you can see, Jazz Fest is about more than just jazz. The popular musical events celebrates all genres of music associated with the city, including:
- Hip hop
And, of course, there is a predominant collection of traditional and contemporary jazz performances, both from established and up-and-coming artists.
In addition to the central festival locale at the Fair Grounds Race Course, many of the cities nightclubs also get in on the act, hosting unaffiliated performances featuring an array of talented musicians.
