The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival leaves no musician behind.
Nearly every marquee act from the COVID-canceled 2020 and 2021 Jazz Fests that didn’t appear in 2022 will get another chance at the Fair Grounds in 2023.
That list includes flute-toting R&B force of nature Lizzo; the Grateful Dead-derived Dead & Company; alternative-folk band the Lumineers; contemporary R&B guitar hero H.E.R.; veteran rocker Melissa Etheridge; rapper Ludacris; and the world premiere of the Wu-Tang Clan's collaboration with New Orleans’ own the Soul Rebels.
They’ll join Ed Sheeran, Mumford & Sons, Jill Scott, Santana, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Kane Brown, Leon Bridges, Kenny Loggins, Herbie Hancock, Tom Jones, Jazmine Sullivan, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, the Steve Miller Band and hundreds of local musicians on the festival’s 14 stages April 28-30 and May 4-7.
Multiple Grammy-winning Kenner native Jon Batiste, who appeared on the 2022 Jazz Fest poster but was unable to perform that year because of a scheduling conflict, tops the roster of homegrown talent.
That roster also encompasses Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, who traditionally closes the main stage on the final Sunday, as well as the Revivalists, Irma Thomas, Galactic, Anders Osborne, Terence Blanchard, Cyril Neville, Tank and the Bangas, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Kermit Ruffins, John Boutte, Dumpstaphunk and even car-dealing crooner Ronnie Lamarque, back at the Fair Grounds for the second consecutive year.
The 52nd edition of what is officially the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell will celebrate the music and culture of Puerto Rico on both weekends. Puerto Rican musicians, cultural displays, parades and cuisine are part of the expanded programming around the festival’s Cultural Exchange Pavilion.
Friday’s announcement listed performers by weekend. Only weekend passes are currently on sale at the festival’s web site, www.nojazzfest.com. The early-bird rate is $225 for the three-day first weekend and $275 for the four-day second weekend, plus fees.
Three VIP ticket packages are also on sale, in limited quantities.
May 4 is “Locals Thursday.” Louisiana residents with identification can buy two single-day tickets at the gate that day for $50 apiece.
British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is one of this year’s major coups. Sheeran’s upcoming North American tour consists mostly of Saturday night appearances at football stadiums. The tour kicks off May 6 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
His Jazz Fest appearance the previous weekend – likely on Saturday, April 29 – will essentially serve as a warm-up for his stadium tour, which is being produced by AEG Presents, Jazz Fest's co-producer.
Sheeran is likely to draw the largest crowd of the 2023 festival. His fans swamped the Gentilly Stage field in 2015 at the same time his pal Elton John entertained an even larger crowd at the main stage.
Sheeran’s popularity has only increased. On Halloween night in 2018, he stood alone onstage in front of 37,000 fans at the Superdome. His crowd at Jazz Fest's main stage this year may rival Elton’s in 2015, but skew younger.
Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford spent 2022 touring as a solo artist, but is reuniting with Mumford & Sons at Jazz Fest on May 7, the festival’s closing Sunday.
Former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant and bluegrass star Alison Krauss combined for one of the best shows of the 2008 Jazz Fest. They've since returned to the Fair Grounds with their individual projects.
They released their second collaborative album, “Raisin’ the Roof” – with a cover of the Allen Toussaint composition “Trouble With My Lover” – in 2021. They’ll perform songs from that album on April 28, the 2023 Jazz Fest’s opening day.
Dead & Company, featuring guest star guitarist John Mayer alongside Grateful Dead veterans Bob Weir, Mikey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, was booked at Jazz Fest in 2020 and 2021, to no avail.
The band kicks off its final tour on May 19 at the Forum in Los Angeles. Like Sheeran, Dead & Company agreed to play a special, pre-tour gig at Jazz Fest. They’ll headline May 6, the festival’s second Saturday.
The Lumineers are also scheduled for May 6. They’ll likely close the Gentilly Stage while Dead & Company are on the main stage.
The world premiere of the onstage collaboration between legendary hip-hop ensemble Wu-Tang Clan and New Orleans brass band/hip-hop hybrid the Soul Rebels was originally slated for the 2020 Jazz Fest.
After a three-year delay, the Wu-Tang/Soul Rebels mash-up will finally take place on the 2023 festival’s first weekend.
Melissa Etheridge was booked for the 2021 festival, then rebooked for 2022, only to drop out at the last minute after a member of her road crew contracted COVID.
“I am hoping I can be asked back again,” she tweeted at the time.
The most prominent name from the COVID-canceled ’20 and ’21 Jazz Fests that is still missing is Foo Fighters. The band was to have made up the missed shows in 2022, only to cancel in the wake of drummer Taylor Hawkins’ death.
This week, Foo Fighters announced upcoming appearances at several festivals, including Bonnaroo in Tennessee, but not Jazz Fest.
Before the COVID shutdown, Jazz Fest had been on a roll. Attendance for the 50th anniversary festival in 2019, which consisted of two four-day weekends, was 475,000, the largest total since Hurricane Katrina.
The 2022 Jazz Fest matched that 475,000 total with one less day than 2019.
Jazz Fest is owned by the non-profit New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation, which uses proceeds to fund an array of cultural and educational initiatives, as well as smaller, free festivals.
The festival is produced by Quint Davis and his Festival Productions Inc.-New Orleans in partnership with international live entertainment powerhouse AEG Presents.
