Pearl Jam, RHCP, Stevie Wonder Lead New Orleans Jazz Fest Lineup
Held over seven days between April 22 and May 1, the 2016 line-up includes a strong balance of newer and established artists. Then, of course, there are New Orleans staples like Trombone Shorty as well as Jon Batiste & Stay Human who will take part this year.
The festival will also hold a tribute to Allen Toussaint, who passed away in November. Toussaint helped define and shape New Orleans music, so a Jazz Fest memorial is entirely fitting. Check out the preliminary announcement here.
