[6/24/21] New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has announced the lineup for its triumphant return to the Fair Grounds Race Course on October 8th–10th and 15th–17th, 2021.
The yearly festival has faced an uphill battle since its 50th edition in the spring of 2019. The 2020 edition of the festival, which was set to feature many of the headliners on the newly announced 2021 lineup, was postponed and later canceled.
At the time of its cancellation, festival organizers aimed to host the next event in the spring of 2021. Those dates, too, were pushed back to October as the pandemic picture continued to develop.

For the second weekend of the event, Jazz Fest will welcome Stevie Nicks, Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band, H.E.R., Norah Jones, Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Beach Boys, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Jon Batiste, Elvis Costello & The Imposters, Brittany Howard, Irma Thomas, Melissa Etheridge, The Isley Brothers, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Boz Scaggs, Rickie Lee Jones, Ledisi, Tower of Power, Big Freedia, Keb’ Mo’ Band, PJ Morton, Playing for Change Band, Samantha Fish, Terence Blanchard feat.
