Over Sixty Veteran Artists to Perform at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival

While Coachella and Bonnaroo get much more press, there is no better festival to see veteran artists than the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Held over two weekends, the festival boasts hundreds of acts on multiple stages with over sixty of the acts having been recording for twenty years or more. While those other festivals boast a dozen (if you're lucky) veteran acts, you can watch the greatest artists who have stood the test of time all day, every day in New Orleans.

This year's festival includes Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Steely Dan, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt, Pearl Jam, Van Morrison, Boz Scaggs, Beck, Buddy Guy, Michael McDonald, Lauren Hill, Julio Iglesias and dozens more spread over the weekends of April 22 to 24 and April 28 to May 1.

Here is the official announcement video:
