Today, to celebrate the end of an incredible New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival music marathon, Pretty Lights has a very special celebration in store for the masses gathered in the Big Easy this afternoon. The pioneering electronic artist will host a parade through the streets of New Orleans today, ending under a bridge for a pop-up performance. The spectacle will begin at Bullet’s Sports Bar at 2441 AP Tureaud Ave. promptly at 4:30 pm, and will feature horns, a second line, and all the joyous pageantry that makes New Orleans such a magical city.
The parade will head down Tureaud, and then down N Roman St before cutting across Bayou Rd and ending up under the I-10 overpass for a party with Pretty Lights providing the music. You can view the parade route below.
Safe to say, with Pretty Lights at the helm and the spirit of Jazz Fest rising to its apex on the final day of the 10-day celebration, this will be quite the spectacle!
Happy Jazz Fest, everybody!
