The lineup for the 2020 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has been unveiled and, as expected, The Who is among the artists set to headline this year’s extravaganza, which takes place April 23 to April 26 and April 30 to May 3.
The British rock legends will hit the festival’s main stage on Saturday, April 25. Back in September, Who guitarist Pete Townshend posted a video on his Instagram page in which he mentioned that his band would play the New Orleans Jazz Fest this year.
Stevie Nicks, Foo Fighters, Dead & Company, Lenny Kravitz, The Black Crowes and The Beach Boys are among the event’s other headliners.
Other veteran rock artists on the festival’s bill include Elvis Costello & the Imposters, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes and The Dirty Knobs, the latter being the band fronted by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell. In addition, the fest will feature a tribute to New Orleans music legend and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dr. John, who died last year.
Single-day tickets and four-day weekend passes are available now. For the full lineup and additional ticket info, visit NOJazzFest.com.
