Posted: May. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Every year, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival seems to grow by leaps and bounds, and the 2013 showing doesn't look to break that tradition in the least. With some huge names headlining the event and lots of stuff to do in the fair-like atmosphere, the New Orleans Jazz Fest is going to be a blast for all in attendance.

NEW ORLEANS – As this year’s New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival’s detailed lineup was released Tuesday, a month before the gates open, organizers said they are energized and expecting to build on last year’s growth in attendance.

“Last year’s festival was really special,” festival producer Quint Davis said at a news conference. “It was the first to show attendance going up a notch. We came out of last year with tremendous momentum and after 44 years to be relevant and growing is a tremendous accomplishment.”
