A Lineup For The 52nd Edition Of This Festival Was Announced Today By Its Organizers
The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is one of the country’s most beloved American music festivals. In its original form, JazzFest was established to celebrate and preserve the legendary music scene of New Orleans. Since then, JazzFest has become one of America’s most exciting and diverse annual traditions.
After the pandemic halted this tradition for a few years, Jazzfest made a welcome return in 2022 after a few years on hold due to the pandemic. This week, we look at the complete lineup for the 2023 festival edition.
Several performers will headline the event, including Dead & Company, Ed Sheeran, and Lizzo. Earlier this week, Lizzo teased that she would perform at Jazz Fest during this year’s festival. Now she’s confirmed her appearance at what’s shaping up to be an exciting event.
In addition to Mumford & Sons, who will also be performing at the festival in one of their first public performances since Winston Marshall left the group in the summer of 2021 following controversy in his defense of conservative pundit Andy Ngo, another band is scheduled to perform at this year’s event.
There are also several well-known names included in the lineup this year, including The Lumineers, Santana, Jon Batiste, Jill Scott, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, H.E.R., Steve Miller Band, Gary Clark Jr., Tedeschi Trucks Band, Ludacris, Trombone Shorty, Wu-Tang Clan, Kenny Loggins, Tom Jones, Buddy Guy, and Herbie Hancock, among others.
In addition to the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, several New Orleans institutions, such as Big Freedia, will be on hand to perform as part of their tradition.
There Are More Than A Dozen Music Stages At Fair Grounds
Over a dozen music stages at the Fair Grounds host hundreds of acts daily and draw tens of thousands of visitors. In addition to Louisiana specialties, there are numerous art and craft exhibits. This year’s festival will include a Puerto Rican celebration, including artist demonstrations, live music, dance showcases, parades, cultural displays, photo exhibits, and authentic cuisine.
Among the first weekend’s acts are Sheeran, Lizzo, Plant & Krauss, the Steve Miller Band, the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Gary Clark Jr., Jill Scott, Kenny Loggins, and the Wu-Tang Clan. Full schedules have yet to be announced.
In addition to H.E.R., Kane Brown, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Ludacris, Leon Bridges, Tom Jones, Herbie Hancock, Buddy Guy, Irma Thomas, and Melissa Etheridge, other artists are scheduled.
The Zac Brown Band will replace Willie Nelson at the 2022 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Nelson canceled his performance and postponed other shows after contracting Coronavirus. His son, Lukas Nelson, performed earlier on the Gentilly Stage with his band, the Promise of the Real. Melissa Etheridge’s crew member tested positive for COVID-19, so she canceled her performance. During the 2022 festival, Mavis Staples replaced Etheridge.
