    When will the 2013 schedule be available for Jazz Fest?

    Jouke van der Weerden

    Planning to visit you and waiting for the program of the NO jazzfest!

  • November 23, 2012

    aprild

    Would love to see Incubus, Coldplay, Linkin Park, Lil Wayne, Pretty Lights , Yelawolf, Skrillex would be a FANTASTIC lineup! At least 3 of the 7!

      This is jazz fest. I absolutely love Pretty Lights, but I can promise you that there will be no electronic DJ’s on this lineup. Expect more roots New Orleans music with a couple of indie bands thrown in. Personally, I would like to see The Flaming Lips, My Morning Jacket (again), and, although very unlikely, The Black Keys.

    Would love to see New Orleans’ own Harry Connick Jr. and Randy Newman again. Also Glen Hansard, for the pure enjoyment, his and ours.

  • April 2, 2013

    Morgan

    Incubus for sure!! The xx and Ray Lamontagne also! :)
