JazzFest Attendance Highest in Almost 10 Years
It wasn't just you. More people were sweating on you than usual at JazzFest this year. According to Fest organizers, this year's attendance was 450,000, the highest since a 2003 bill that counted Crosby, Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, Steely Dan, Counting Crows and New Edition among the big headliners. The all-time high remains 2001's 650,000. This year's potent mix of legends like Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, Tom Petty, The Beach Boys and Herbie Hancock, likeables including Foo Fighters, My Morning Jacket, Janelle Monae and Rodrigo y Gabriela and of course locals seemed to have hit the mark again. Start your betting now for how they'll top it next year.
