Like the Montreux Jazz Festival, New Orleans’s Jazz Fest utilizes multiple weekends and a massive pool of talent to give lucky attendees the sonic treat of a lifetime. This fest has a bit more voodoo doin, though, with Nawlins greats like Aaron Neville and Trombone Shorty ruling the roost. The ultimate music party in the city that has never stopped partying in all its history, Jazz Fest will without a doubt boil over into the bar stages and side streets of the French Quarter and beyond. We can taste those po’ boys already.
