What time does the music usually stop at the Fairgrounds? Just wondering as I am looking to pick up tickets for some of the club shows too. I already have my ticket to the Mule for Friday night, but was looking at other shows for Saturday. However, there are also some acts I would like to catch Saturday night at the Fairgrounds too.

Fest headliners are finished at 7, but if you wait until 7 to leave, and you didn't drive, especially on a Saturday, it may take a LONG time to get back to the quarter. Waiting for a cab or fest express can easily take an hour +. You'll still make it back in plenty of time for any night show. Most start later than the posted time. But I would skip the idea of eating a big sit-down meal between fest and a night show.

You shouldn't have a problem. The club shows don't start till late and Jazzfest closes before dark. Remember to check out http://www.jazzfestgrids.com/ for a list of who is playing where. Have a blast.

And make sure you build in some nap time between the Fairgrounds and club shows. Spending the day in the hot spring New Orleans sun can really wipe you out. Especially if you attend the Fairgrounds shows every day. By Saturday afternoon, you could be running on empty if you don't pace yourself. And there's a ton of great music to be heard well after the Fairground shuts down. Have fun....

My guess is you're going to enjoy the evening shows much more than the hustle and bustle of a stearmy afternoon at the Fairgrounds. My two centsWord of advice-try to catch as many shows at smaller clubs, and try to spend some time each night catching local acts at smaller local clubs.

My first few trips to Jazzfest, I spent alot of time at the bigger Superfly shows, but in later years found my evenings were better spent hopping around to smaller clubs (Frenchman Street is really good for this) like DBA, Blue Nile, and the like, or buying the "all-night" tickets for shows like the Bayou Rendezvous or a brass band blowout at Howlin' Wolf. Most smaller clubs in NOLA do allow reentry, so you can hop around from place to place.

Something else I'd suggest is to check out schedules for instores at Louisiana Music Factory and other music shops around town, especially for the "daze between." Good music for free! A great way to get a taste for local bands if you're not familiar with the scene, or to catch a local favorite when you have a conflict at the 'grounds or in the evening.

Hope you have a great time!

I love nap time. Sometimes, if I have too much of everything in the hot spring sun, I will just take a nap wherever I am...or is that a collapse? Somtimes I can't even tell myself.

This will also be my first JF experience. Unfortunately I am going the first weekend only. After seeing those grids shape up it is definitely clear that the second weekend was the way to go.
If anybody knows of any bands that are worth seeing the first weekend please let me know. Right now all I have planned is the sunday Funky Meters show at the HOB. Other than that its going to be a free for all. Can't wait for it.

Good advice on the car service/cab idea. Some cabbies will make arrangements with the passengers to come back to the Fairgrounds for an appointed time as they know if you are not there and ready to go,someone else will be. Worked for us.
