Jazz Fest 2022: See the complete daily music lineup
NEW ORLEANS (NOLA WEEKEND) - The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival announced the daily music schedule for the first festival since 2019 and launched single-day ticket sales for the event scheduled from April 29 – May 1 and May 5 – 8 at the Fair Grounds.
Jazz Fest producers unveiled its entire music lineup, including blues, gospel, traditional and contemporary jazz, Cajun, zydeco, Mardi Gras Indians, brass bands, and social aid and pleasure clubs.
The Who, Stevie Nicks, Foo Fighters, Lionel Richie, Jimmy Buffett, Luke Combs, The Black Crowes, Willie Nelson and Erykah Badu headline this year’s event.
Many of the big names in this year’s lineup were already signed on to perform in 2021 before the rise in COVID-19 cases canceled the event.
Since the initial announcement, R&B legend Charlie Wilson has been also added to the lineup and will perform on Sunday, May 1, Jazz Fest producers said.
Other acts scheduled to perform include The Avett Brothers, Norah Jones, Lauren Daigle, Ludacris, Billy Strings, Nelly, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, Elvis Costello & The Imposters, Death Cab for Cutie, Ziggy Marley: Songs of Bob Marley, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, The Revivalists, Lukas Nelson & POTR, Randy Newman, Melissa Etheridge, Boz Scaggs and Irma Thomas, among others.
The festival was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Efforts to host the first-ever October Jazz Fest in 2021 were unsuccessful after the Delta variant surge forced organizers to cancel the festival.
Started in 1970, Jazz Fest annually celebrates the unique culture and heritage of New Orleans and Louisiana, alongside unforgettable performances by nationally and internationally renowned guest artists.
