Genres run the gamut from blues, R&B, gospel, Cajun, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean, folk, Latin, rock, rap, and country to both traditional and contemporary jazz. Overall, the event is meant to be a celebration of indigenous music and the unique culture of New Orleans and Louisiana.

Just look at some of the names from 2023 The Lumineers, Robert Plant, Steve Miller Band, Lizzo, Ed Sheeran, Melissa Etheridge, Tom Jone- the line up could not be more diverse.

The Jazz Fest lineup is typically announced every January. But one special musical guest has already been announced: The Rolling Stones! The Rolling Stones will headline Jazz Fest 2024 on Thursday, May 2,2024.

This year we, Keeley and Harry are escorting a group to New Orleans jazz festival. Having moved to the county over a year ago- we recognized what a music loving group the county is. We wanted to meet more like minded people in the county and create an experience which lends itself to authentic friendships. We have been to many concerts and found Jazz festival suits all tastes and level of activity.

We would love for you to join us and experience New Orleans. If you’re interested please complete and submit the form here. As soon as the lineup is announced we will send the final information.
