"The Cubes" are an iconic part of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival experience.
In recent years, the artist lineup has been released to the public every January. This is when visitors from out of town start planning their trips in earnest -- are you going to go the first weekend, the second weekend, both weekends?
But the real fun begins when the Cubes come out. The Cubes are day-to-day schedules for which musicians are playing on which stages, and exactly when. Find out more about their history in our latest Jazz Fest at 50 Time Capsule, as narrated by Harry Shearer, above, and see this year's Cubes, available here now.
