Advocate staff photo by MATTHEW HINTON -- An unusually large crowd covers both the horse track and Fair Grounds infield as Eric Clapton plays at the main Acura Stage at Jazz Fest in 2014.

Jazz Fest fans fill up the infield by the Acura Stage, chat, put on sunscreen, and take pictures of one another, on the first Sunday of Jazz Fest in New Orleans April 27, 2014. Song is “Swing 39” by Latché Swing from the Freemusicarchive.org
