I know I'm a little late on reporting this, but the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will be taking place this year on April 28-30 & May 5-7. Read the press release here. Definitely some great news for the city of New Orleans as they continue to rebuild from Katrina. Some of the artists that are already confirmed for the fairgrounds are The Meters, Dave Matthews Band, Bob Dylan, Dr. John, Galactic as well as a ton of local New Orleans acts. No late night shows have been announced yet, but as they do I'll keep you posted.
