Since 1970, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has been an event that music fans both within Louisiana and well beyond its borders look forward to attending. The lineup for the 2024 edition of the event has been released, and once again it’s filled with a plethora of artists that are in no way limited solely to jazz. In fact, to quote the festival's official website, you can expect a lineup which "encompasses every style associated with the city and the state: blues, R&B, gospel, Cajun, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean, folk, Latin, rock, rap, country, bluegrass and everything in between."

The 2024 festival will take place at the Fair Grounds Race Course over the course of two weekends – April 25-28 and May 2-5 – and 14 different stages, with an anticipated attendance of nearly half a million concertgoers...and if that seems like a ridiculous number of people, well, you clearly haven’t studied the lineup yet.

Additionally, the official press release for the event promises a celebration of "the music and culture of Colombia at the Expedia Cultural Exchange Pavilion, with 17 bands and a variety of artists sharing the unique sights and sounds from the South American nation, including Colombian salsa, cumbia, champeta, vallenato, chirimia, and currulao. There will also be daily parades honoring Colombia’s vibrant carnival spirit, with attendees getting opportunities to meet Indigenous and Afro-Colombian artisans, purchase their crafts and taste traditional Colombian food and drinks."
