Jazz Festival - USA

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, often known as Jazz Fest, is an annual celebration of the music and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana.

The Festival celebrates the indigenous music and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana, so the music encompasses every style associated with the city and the state: blues, R&B, gospel music, Cajun music, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean, folk music, Latin, rock, rap music, country music, bluegrass and everything in between. And of course there is lots of jazz, both contemporary and traditional.

Jazz Fest is currently held during the day, between the hours of 11am and 7pm.

Even more music events than usual take place around the city during Jazz Fest weekends and also throughout the week in between. The Festival is a major tourism destination, with an importance for New Orleans rivaled only by Mardi Gras.
