Today, the Line-up came out. The ABB are listed for the second weekend!!!

Harry Connick Jr will close the Festival on Sun. May 6. Too many great musicians and groups are playing to name, so I'll leave the link

I have a wedding in DC that weekend....if they end up making the trip a few miles north to play Beale St. Music Fest here in Memphis that same weekend (and many bands do), I'll be furious.

I used to live in NOLA and went to every Jazz Fest in the 90's, after seeing this years line-up, I know I'll be heading back. Definitely for the 2nd weekend. Thanks for posting this.

Steely Dan, ZZ Top and the ABB in the same weekend? In New Orleans, no less, at the Mother of all Music Festivals? I am a VERY happy man!

Everyone should pay attention to the following artists for possible sit-ins with the Allmans..

Branford Marsalis
Taj Mahal
Chuck Leavell (oh yeah! Great to see Chuck's name on the lineup)
ZZ Top

Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top just sat in with Honeytribe in Vegas, so we could theoretically see Devon on stage with the boys from Texas at this show. How cool would that be?

Long live Jazz Fest!

No Mule, No Warren solo, not worth the trip from Brooklyn for me. Of course it is right after the Beacon and Wanee, so nothing against the ABB.

Lets see if there are any Mule dates that get scheduled. If it's only one, it still isn't worth the trip for just one show. I mean it isn't like NOLA is that great of a place to hang out now after all the problems that Katrina has brought.

Sorry, I'm just not a big festival person.

^^^ yankweed1 nad mrsyankweed, we'll have to meet up

Angelemerald ~ Gov't Mule have only been on the Festival line-up 1 time that I've been there, but have always played at night. I missed last years Fest b/c of concerns about Katrina. My friends went down and said there was nothing to worry about. That's why I booked this year. I really missed all the good music and food.

To JimmyR: Thanks a million for the jazz fest link.

I lived in New Orleans in 68 and 69 right out of college
It was a wonderful city and just about my favorite place for vacation.
This will be my first trip back since Katrina.
Now I have to start booking.

______________________________

I went down to NO last year for the first post-Katrina Jazzfest - my 6th Fest and 11th trip to NO - and it was more fun than ever. No doubt Katrina has exacted a toll on the city, but during the Fest the party is on, the crowds are as big as ever, the vibe is positive, the bars and restuarants are open, the music is fantastic and the locals are happy for the massive cash infusion.

If you are a tourist, NO is definitely open for business as usual. They need tourist income and positive vibes. Don't be fooled by naysayers. The party is most definitely on.

NOLA is a great place to party, especially during Jazzfest. Definitely go there and party. See exactly what is happening there. I personally was quite upset after being there last May. I think it's great that Jazzfest is happening and if Mule announces 2 dates I'll be there again. But please don't expect NOLA to be the way it was because it isn't. I did look at a lot of areas other than the French Quarter and the community surrounding the Fairgrounds because I drove there. I pray it has recovered more from that time. And really, anyone who goes should know they are participating in bringing NOLA back. So please make the trip.

Just booked my flight and hotel. Thurs 3rd til Tues 8th. Staying at the Sheraton on Canal. can't wait. No doubt in my mind Mule will be playing, if not they'll be plenty of Warren at plenty of venues for sure.

WWAAAAAAA!!! Loving this line-up (and I lovelovelove New Orleans) but no way could I attend with the job and other things I've got planned already. Enjoy, all you going, get yourself some good music, some good food and report back on how the shows are (please)! Interested in seeing who's going to be the last headliner named - almost sounds like it will be spectacular, the way it's still being held back, but looking at who's already booked it would be hard to beat!

For me, who was raised on Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, and Fats Waller by my Daddy, I have to say that thinking about what's been lost becasue of Katrina and also government's inept response to Katrina -- it's almost too much to bear. But not everything beautiful and magical about New Orleans was drowned in the flood. Just the fact that the Mardi Gras Indians found a way to sew their amazing feather costumes and parade on Fat Tuesday, and that the city was able to pull off Jazzfest at all last year -- these speak volumes about the resiliency of the people of New Orleans. So does the work of Habitat for Humanity and the musicians who have turned the offices above Tipitina's into a non-profit base for helping local musicians find housing, financial assistance, gigs, and new instruments.

Angela's right that New Orleans is not as it was, but it's all the more reaosn why it's so important to support what -- and WHO -- IS salvageable.

Anything that I can do to help New Orleans, I will do. And if I can help New Orleans simply by going to party and experience so much great live music and food, then that's just a no-brainer.

I was at Jazzfest last year and I had a great time. The people there are great. In spite of what they were through, they could still smile and keep positive. I agree with Peteman we all should show up and support that great city. The Brothers will be there and I'm sure the Mule will be playing a night show second weekend. In my opinion, the best thing about Jazzfest is the night shows. Music goes on all night. Plus you never know who will show up at any given show. To me it is the greatest musical event I have been experienced. Last year was not as active as most but it was still great. The hardest choice you will make during that weekend is which great musiicans you will have to miss to see the great ones you choose to see. I LOVE JAZZFEST!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE NEW ORLEANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can bring a knapsack, chairs and even lightweight coolers. In 2005, they checked everything. If you had a folding camping chair, they made you take it out of the bag. Kinda weird though, with all the checking, a tank of nitrous was seen during the WSP set.

From the jazzfest website...
What can you bring to the Fest?
Here is the official list of restrictions, as published in the brochure:

Festival policies & important information
All bags will be searched and vehicles will be subject to search. Small bags and backpacks (17" x 12" x 10") only and twelve-pack soft coolers are permitted.

Wagons, carts, pets, glass, personal tents, metal poles, shade canopies, beach or pole-style umbrellas, and athletic games are not allowed. Bicycles are not allowed on the infield. Strollers for children are permitted. Blankets and ground tarps may not exceed 6'x 8'. Inserting stakes, poles, or any other objects into the ground is prohibited. Video and audio recording equipment is strictly prohibited. No unauthorized vending. Weapons, illicit drugs, and other contraband are strictly prohibited. Fair Grounds management will not allow outside beverages of any kind whether carried or in vehicles. Festival reserves the right to deny entry or remove from the grounds anyone in violation of these polices.

I've been to Jazzfest before Katrina and after. Last year the vibe was amazing, the food was phenomenal and the music was invigorating. The nigttime crowd down in the Quarter was great and all in all it was very positive, but at the same time respectful. I have no doubt that the party will be rockin full force this year. Counselor hit it on the head, NO lives and dies with tourist dollars...they can't wait to see you.

What to bring? The lawn chair topic is a hot debate (many don't think you should be allowed to bring them) but I didn't take one last year and really wish I had.

The only other essential in my book would be an empty soft cooler.

"The hardest choice you will make during that weekend is which great musiicans you will have to miss to see the great ones you choose to see."

Well said! I've often said the same thing. I remember one Jazz Fest where I MISSED James Brown, Pharoah Sanders and somebody else amazing. You know there is a lot of good music going on when missing the Godfather of Soul is even a legitimate option Besides the big names, there are so many amazing local acts on the schedule that you've never heard of, but that will totally rock your world if you give them a chance.

This is my first time going back to New Orleans after Katrina, and especially since I went to Tulane and lived there for about 5 years, I fully expect to have my heart broken by what I see. However, music has always been the lifeblood of the city, and if they have any chance whatsoever of recovering, it will be through their music, food and unique culture.
