In April and May, millions of people worldwide “Fested in Place” with WWOZ. Back by popular demand, we will present a new 7-day virtual festival featuring classic live sets from New Orleans music legends past and present.
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.
"Festing in Place - The Next Fest Thing" will include performances from New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, French Quarter Fest, Satchmo SummerFest, Crescent City Blues and BBQ Fest, WWOZ Studios, and New Orleans clubs, plus rare performances from other historic collections. Festing in Place is produced in cooperation with the Archive of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation.
The 7-day broadcast will also include interview segments highlighting the music, food, and heritage of New Orleans and Louisiana to give the feeling of a wide-reaching cultural festival.
