In case you hadn’t seen already, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival released their lineup announcement video today, and it might quite possibly be the most inclusive lineup I have ever seen. Ranging from Phish to Public Enemy, Solange to Foster the People, Trey Songz to Jason Isbell, Arcade Fire to Avett Brothers, Eric Clapton to Christina Aguilera (seriously). Not to mention the smattering of traditional NOLA jazz and gospel acts. I can’t decide if this is the most amazing strategy ever since people have already been going to Jazzfest for years regardless of the lineup, or if it’s going to result in the biggest clusterfuck in the history of music festivals.
Thinking about going? I know…so am I. Here’s a nifty to guide for everything you need to know if you’re planning a trip.
Best part of this announcement? It’s put a (temporary I’m sure) damper on all the Coachella-philes.
