Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on
Bruce Springsteen, Robert Plant and Eric Clapton are among the headliners for the 2014 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. The annual music fest will take place over two three-day weekends from April 25 through May 4.
Despite that “jazz” part in its title, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival features more than just jazz artists. This year’s lineup includes a diverse group of performers, including classic-rock favorites John Fogerty, Santana and Boz Scaggs.
Dozens of artists — in genres spanning everything from R&B and indie rock to blues and, duh, jazz — will take part in the Big Easy’s annual music and cultural blowout. Both Springsteen and Plant will perform full-group sets with the E Street Band and the Sensational Space Shifters, respectively.
