We are thinking of you and sending our best wishes!

Here is a very special announcement we hope will lift your spirits.

Pull out your festival shirts, hats, flags, chairs and get ready to celebrate the best of New Orleans music from your backyard, your front porch or your air-conditioned living room-anywhere in the world!

WWOZ will broadcast all 8 days for 8 hours each day-- 11am-7pm, the same days and hours as the originally-scheduled Jazz Fest! Tune in April 23-26 and April 30-May 3.

Scroll down for Cubes for the first weekend.

We’re even creating our own special cubes highlighting the schedule which will include some of the best performances in the history of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

Dr. John, Fats Domino, The Neville Brothers, Irma Thomas, The Meters, Allen Toussaint, Henry Butler, Marcia Ball, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Trombone Shorty, Kermit Ruffins, John Boutte, The Radiators, Big Freedia, Ernie K-Doe, Ellis Marsalis, Danny Barker, The Rebirth Brass Band, Bob French and the Original Tuxedo Jazz Band, and many other jazz, blues, cajun, and zydeco artists. 

We'll also be airing the rarely heard "Fire Benefit" from 1974 featuring Professor Longhair, the Wild Magnolias, and Dr. John

The 8-day broadcast will also include interview segments highlighting the music, food, crafts and heritage of New Orleans and Louisiana to give the feeling of a wide-reaching cultural festival. We will also be sharing recipes for some of your favorite Jazz Fest cuisine, and also help you connect with local festival food and craft vendors.

It’s not too late to join us as a sponsor and receive worldwide recognition for this once in a lifetime event! Please email us at festinginplace@wwoz.org for more information. 

Special thanks to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, and the Archive of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation.
