Key Dates: April 27 - May 6, 2018
The 2018 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will celebrate 48 years of musical and cultural history at this year's star-studded New Orleans event of the year. Started in 1970, the Jazz & Heritage Festival continues to showcase the most important names in music history alongside many of Louisiana's favorite entertainers.
The festival celebrates the indigenous music and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana, so the music encompasses every style associated with the city and the state: blues, R&B, gospel, Cajun, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean, folk, Latin, rock, rap, country, bluegrass and everything in between. And of course there is lots of jazz, both contemporary and traditional.
