The second post in a series about the New Orleans Jazz Festival covering food (restaurants and recipes), fun, music and travel tips.
Hello Friends! As I mentioned in NOLA Jazz Fest 17 Post #1, we’re all jazzed up about going back to Jazz Fest after a hiatus of a couple of years, and have already made hotel reservations for the second weekend (May 4-7).
We said before:
Who’s on the playbill that weekend? We don’t know! Does it matter? Not really! The biggest problem with the New Orleans Jazz Fest is that there are too many good performances happening at the same time – and we can only hear one band at a time.
But now, we have the lineup. Woohoo!
The lineup is GREAT! Big bands, little bands, amazingly meaningful local bands…check it out here. I’m as excited about seeing Stevie Wonder (for the first time) and Earth, Wind and Fire (for the second) as I am about seeing Voice of the Wetlands All-Stars (for the 5th time, because they are truly all-stars at Jazz Fest every year) and the variety of bands that play on the Jazz and Heritage Stage who inspire the second line dancers with their parasols. And there will be a huge celebration of Cuban music and culture this year. I can’t wait to learn more about our neighbors 90 miles off the coast of Florida.
Here’s the official video to announce the lineup.
We are getting a gang together to attend Jazz Fest this year. Are you in? You should make your hotel reservations NOW before they’re all sold out.

Ohhh, the anticipation! More posts are coming in the near future to celebrate food and music and fun.
