New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, arguably the crown jewel of NOLA's many music festivals, just dropped its 2018 lineup in a jaunty announcement video that has us stoked for spring.
Sure, it boasts only-at-Jazz-fest gets like Aretha Franklin (!!!!!!), Aerosmith, and Sting, but the lineup also features plenty of current superstars like Khalid and Cage The Elephant, and classic acts like Lionel Richie, Anita Baker, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Aaron Neville and even an appearance by Jerry Lee Lewis. There are even acts you never thought you'd see on a lineup again, like Better Than Ezra and Steel Pulse. Check out the sprawling and astonishingly diverse lineup below:

We love Jazz Fest for its inclusivity, unpretentious reverence for music, and chilled-out, everyone-is-welcome vibe.  It also does tremendous work in the local community year-round, so your support of the festival goes a long way past just the one week it goes down.
