The Who, Stevie Nicks, Foo Fighters, Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band, Lionel Richie and many, many more will be headlining the New Orleans Heritage & Jazz Festival presented by Shell from April 29 – May 8. 

Returning for the first time since having to cancel their 2020 and 2021 events due to the pandemic, the first weekend taking place on April 29 – May 1 will see the lights of The Who, Foo Fighters, Lionel Richie, The Avett Brothers, Nelly, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit and more. The second-weekend taking place from M 5 – 8 will see Stevie Nicks, Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band, Luke Combs, The Black Crowes, Erykah Badu, Willie Nelson & Family and more. 

Tickets bought for 2020 and 2021 will roll over to this year’s event. Returning once again to the New Orleans Fair Grounds, several performers who had been slated for previous ill-fated lineups will now be making their way over to the festival. Both The Who and Foo Fighters had first appeared on the 2020 lineup of the event, with Stevie Nicks having planned to appear at the festival in 2019 along with Fleetwood Mac before they had to pull out of the event. 

The 2011 version of the event grossed a total of $2.75 million, according to reports submitted to Pollstar’s Boxoffice. The last version of the festival, which took place in 2019, saw performances from the likes of Katy Perry, Pitbull, Alanis Morissette, J Balvin, Chris Stapleton, Earth, Wind & Fire and more. 

More than 100 artists will be taking to the festival’s stages over the course of its two weekends. A limited number of new tickets for this year’s event are currently available on the festival’s website. Passes for the first weekend of the event include three days of music, while the second weekend will see four days. Three different kinds of VIP passes will be available, including the Big Chief VIP Experience which provides special viewing access to most stages, the Grand Marshal VIP Pass for up-close access to three major stages, and the Krewe of Jazz Fest VIP passes with special covered seating at the event’s largest stage.
