Age of Van: The Revivalists' Rob Ingraham Presents a Musician's View of Festival Season
In this week's installment of Age of Van, Rob Ingraham talks about navigating the complex circuitry of logistics and dad outfits that makes up festival season.
Watching the Crowd (and Bands) at JazzFest's Final Day
The first lesson every festival-goer must learn is that at any standard large event, it is, by necessity, only sort of about the music. Behind every moment spent actually enjoying a band, there's a trek through an impossible crowd, or $5 spent on a Coors Light. Or a half-hour wait outside the porta-potties. This is especially true at Jazz Fest, where your correspondent repeatedly found himself immersed in the sheer spectacle of it all.

The party is over, but fest goers don't have to wait another year to get the best music, crafts, and food of Jazz Fest. Click through for some of NoDef's highlights from this year, including photos. Find a new artist to follow outside of the fairgrounds tents, or discover a new local restaurant after they've packed up their booths.

Fest Finder: 6 JazzFest Meeting Places
“Are you going to the Fest?” is probably New Orleans’ most popular question right now. That said, it’s almost impossible to find friends on a packed afternoon at Jazz Fest unless you literally walk into them in line for a $6 beer.
JazzFest Entrepreneur Squeezes In Lemonade Stand Between Revelry, Homework
by Anisa Peraica
It's Lemonade Day in Louisiana, when we remember a drink associated with warm weather and childhood. During Jazz Fest season, it can be associated with money. One freckle-faced entrepreneur in particular has made a niche for himself in the Bayou St. John community. 10 -year -old Lyle Usdin, along with some of his neighbors, have made a tradition out of selling lemonade at the corner of Ursulines and Lopez streets for the past three years during Jazz Fest season.
