The Who, Dead & Company, Stevie Nicks, The Black Crowes and More Lead Jazz Fest 2020 Lineup


It has been announced that the 2020 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will feature performances by the likes of The Who, Dead & Company, Stevie Nicks, Foo Fighters, Lizzo, Lionel Richie, The Lumineers, The Black Crowes, Lenny Kravitz, Brandi Carlile, The Beach Boys and many more.

The tagline for Jazz Fest 2020 is “Right Place, Right Time,” nodding to the late, great NOLA icon Dr. John. As per usual, a number of the Crescent City’s own performers will take the stage at the Fairgrounds, from Irma Thomas to Aaron Neville to Tank & The Bangas to the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to George Porter Jr. & Runnin’ Pardners.

A very special Wu-Tang Clan set will feature NOLA’s Soul Rebels brass band, and – as per tradition – Big Chief Monk Boudreaux will appear with the Golden Eagles Mardi Gras Indians.

“Celebrating 51 years, ‘Jazz Fest’ continues to showcase the most important names in music both locally and nationally,” reads an official statement. “Celebrating decades of musical and cultural memories, Jazz Fest stands alone in presenting the highest caliber artists in such varied genres as gospel, blues, traditional and contemporary jazz, rock, R&B, Cajun, country, zydeco and much more.”

Nicks makes her return to the festival this year, following Fleetwood Mac’s cancellation in 2019 due to illness (the band was later replaced by Widespread Panic).

The event will also nod to fallen NOLA icons with Tributes to Dr. John and Art Neville.
