Dead & Company, Lizzo and Ed Sheeran to Headline 2023 Jazz Fest in New Orleans

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, lovingly known as Jazz Fest, returns April 28th-May 7th to Fair Grounds Race Course (just ten minutes from the French Corner). The 2023 iteration of the festival will have headliners Dead & Company, Lizzo and Ed Sheeran.

The famous “cube” schedules are being released this week so that fans and attendees can plan out their detailed schedule to enjoy all that the festival has to offer. Many times hard choices have to be made as many of the headliners start at the same time across the fairground stages.

Jazz Fest celebrates the indigenous music and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana, so its thirteen stages will welcome artists from blues, R&B, gospel, Cajun, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean, folk, Latin, rock, country, bluegrass and jazz genres. And of course, there will be a variety of local and regional food, handmade art and crafts and second-line parades in addition to the music!

Jazz Fest will celebrate Puerto Rico in 2023 with colorful artist demonstrations, live music and dance showcases, parades, cultural displays, photo exhibits and authentic cuisine. Puerto Rican bomba, plena, salsa and reggaeton rhythms will echo across the Festival grounds on various stages, and inside the Cultural Exchange Pavilion.

New this year, the Cultural Exchange Village comes to life outside the performance tent with artist demonstrations, daily parades and sampling of traditional Puerto Rican dishes.

VIP packages are weekend-specific and are valid for all days of the weekend purchased.  Jazz Fest offers three distinct VIP opportunities to experience the event in a very special way: the Festival’s popular Big Chief VIP ticket package provides special viewing access at most of the Festival’s stages; the Grand Marshal VIP Pass allows for up-close access at the three major stages; and the Krewe of Jazz FestVIP Pass entitles patrons to special covered seating at the Festival Stage.

Note: Jazz Fest is going cashless this year so plan accordingly and bring your credit card for purchases.
