New Orleans knows how to throw a good party. And the 45th annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival looks like it will be no exception.
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Christina Aguilera, Eric Clapton, Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend, Santana, Phish, Public Enemy, and more will join New Orleans jazz and funk acts like Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Kermit Ruffins, the North Mississippi Allstars, and Allen Toussaint at the annual music extravaganza, which runs over two weekends, April 25-27 and May 1-4.
Other highlights include Robin Thicke, Robert Plant, Alabama Shakes, and Chaka Khan. In a nod to the indie rock turn the annual event has taken in the past few years, Foster the People and The Head and The Heart have also joined the lineup.
Springsteen last played Jazz Fest in 2012 and Arcade Fire paid a visit to the fairgrounds in 2011. Check out the announcement video below and get the full daily lineup on the festival’s site here.
