Jazz Fest descends on The Big Easy April 28-May 7. AXS was on hand for the 2016 Jazz Fest; you can check out our coverage here. The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is one of the most anticipated and prestigious festivals in the country. Not only is the festival itself bumping, the after-shows and celebration of New Orleans culture are another big attraction. It is also a musician’s festival, and you never know what kind of collaborations you’re going to see with that many world-class cats in town.
