Fair Sounds

Jazz Fest Drops 2016 Lineup



Get your chairs ready! The lineup for the 2016 Jazz and Heritage Festival is out. Headliners include Stevie Wonder, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Paul Simon, Steely Dan, and Snoop Dog.


Foul Play at the Fair Grounds


Many people have lost their shirts at the Fair Grounds and during Jazz Fest, a few visitors lost their head. However, during this year’s Fest, one citizen lost their car. Today, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) said that they recovered the car and believe that it was stolen by Brandon Davis.


Drinking Culture

Swamped at the Seahorse Saloon



Gentle reader, if you earn a crust in the music venue or the white-linen restaurant, your eyes are likely now deep as sinkholes. Your stare is no doubt a cause for concern in your fellows, piercing the distance catatonically as it does. For The Jazz Fest has nigh run its long course. But ere the hoof replaces the folding chair upon the track, let us soldier out and witness the festival’s denouement. Let us view the sunburned hordes streaming from the gate, take a drink or two, and muse a spell on the world’s greatest musical event. All from a stool at the old Seahorse Saloon.


Today in NOLA: 5.03.15


Jazz Fest finishes today with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue on the Acura Stage. Over in Algiers, NOizeFest returns with an added “bucolic” element. After the Fair Grounds close, George Clinton, Dumpstaphunk, and Voodoo Dead will keep the crowds dancing all night.


Jazz Fest After Hours: 5.02.15


The Fest ends tomorrow. So, make the most of tonight! A couple big acts like Kreutzman’s Voodoo Dead, Primus, and the EDM’s Go Hard Tour are in town. Plus, there is funk, jazz, and afrobeat at nearly every venue in town. Over 20 different acts to check out tonight follow.


Today in NOLA: 5.02.15


There’s only two days of Jazz Fest remaining. Louisianans are heading back to the polls and the race is on in Kentucky. On this day in 1964, the Dixie Cups’ “Going to the Chapel” entered the Billboard R&B chart. Now, more ways to kick off your second Jazz Fest weekend. Check back for after dark events.


Jazz Fest After Hours: 4.30.15


Week Two of Jazz Fest is ramping up, but the music continues after the Fair Grounds close. Tonight NOLA gets funky with standard bearers Galactic, more jammy supergroups, some rock from the Revivalists, and more. Check it all out down below.


Today in NOLA 4.30.15


Jazz Fest returns today. So does the NFL (sort of). The Special Man is hosting an art show and Mid City is hosting a farmers’ market. On this day in 1812, Louisiana officially became the 18th state in the Union. And, there is lots to do to celebrate statehood.


Jaz Fest Weather Outlook


The Weather Gods and New Orleanians have a love-hate relationship. This weekend, that dynamic is skewing towards the amorous. Radar analysis and forecasts from the National Weather Service (NWS) are predicting a pleasant, rain-free second weekend for Jazz Fest.


After Hours Music Listings: 4.27.15


The fest is on pause, but so is the rain. The music is not. Joan Armatrading, Marco Benevento, and Marcia Ball are just a few of the names on the marquis tonight. Plus, on Frenchmen, there are more funky mashups going down. Check out all of the details below.
