2016 New Orleans Jazz Fest Talent Announced + Day-to-Day Lineup

by Ashlee Nicole
2016 Jazz Fest Lineup

Jazz Fest is one of my favorite festivals here in NOLA. Last year, attendance was at its highest (since Hurricane Katrina) with 460,000 people. Aside from my fave Ed Sheeran performing, great artists like Elton John, Pitbull, T.I., and No Doubt also grabbed the crowd. It was everything! This year’s festival has big shoes to fill. But with acts like Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Lauryn Hill, Jazmine Sullivan, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and J. Cole, 2016 may be giving 2015 a run for its money.
