The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival announced the singers leading the 2021 star-studded event. Foo Fighters, Demi Lovato, H.E.R., and more will be performing at the festival set to take place this upcoming fall.
The festival is famous for its incredible amount of culture and heritage stemming from New Orleans which is celebrated each year. It will take place during two weekends in October, Oct. 8-10 and Oct. 15-17. There will be more artists announced within the next month, but for now there are 50 artists who will be present at the festival.
Artists such as Lizzo, Stevie Nicks, and Wu-Tang Clan were supposed to perform at the festival back in 2020 until it was forced to cancel due to the pandemic. This year, New Orleans residents and people from all around the country are more excited than before to celebrate this festival once again.
Alongside national and international artists, this event celebrates unity and diversity, making it one of the most powerful yet exhilarating festivals of the year for all demographics and ethnicities. Hundreds more performers are said to be part of the lineup, and we are anxiously waiting to see who else will be up on stage alongside some of our other favorites that have already been announced.
In the past, the performers have been announced in January since it usually takes place in the early months of spring. Again, due to COVID-19, the festival had to be pushed back to the fall following COVID guidelines.
There is speculation prior to each festival of what other “big name acts” will be in attendance. While it is uncertain what artists will be there, we will know soon enough in the coming weeks as more names are announced. With the world going back to “normal”, we cannot wait to experience a festival again, as we are sure our absolute favorite performers can’t either.
