March 6, 2011 dazzadiego No Comments

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is one of the most traditional and popular music festivals in the United States. Located in the heart of New Orleans, the festival displays the vast history and culture of Louisiana, as well as their rich variety of foods. Jazz Fest, as it’s known, offers a great line-up of artist year after year, and this year is not an exception.
With a great assortment of music genres, Jazz Fest offers something for everyone, classic rock (Bon Jovi and John Mellencamp), Indie headliners (Arcade Fire and the Strokes), and new Americana music (Wilco and the Avett Brothers) and maybe, just maybe a brief Fugees reunion (Miss Lauren Hill and former Haiti presidential candidate Wyclef Jean are schedule to perform!). Other artist include Cindy Lauper, Willie Nelson and Jeff Beck.
