Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, Sting, Jack White and More Confirmed for Jazzfest 2018

Between April 27 – 29 and May 3 – 6, Jazzfest will once again take over New Orleans, with a lineup that includes Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, Sting, Jimmy Buffett, Jack White, Beck, Lionel Richie, David Byrne and more.

Hundreds of acts will perform under the festival’s banner over two weekends, from music legends like Jerry Lee Lewis and Smokey Robinson to exciting festival bands like Cage the Elephant and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

This year will be a particularly exciting Jazzfest because the city of New Orleans will turn 300 years old. In a statement, festival organizers said that the two weekends will include special programs “highlighting the multicultural fabric of the City.”

Watch the Jazzfest announcement video and see the lineup below.
