The list of musical performers for the 2019 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will be revealed on Tuesday, Jan. 15, at 11 a.m. There will also be a press conference at the George and Joyce Wein Jazz & Heritage Center, located at 1225 N. Rampart Street, for the announcement.
The highly anticipated roster for the expanded, 50th anniversary Jazz Fest was originally slated to be released in December. But the festival's producers pushed back the big reveal to January, the usual month for the release in recent years.
The previously announced addition of Thursday to the festival's first weekend has fueled speculation that this year's second Thursday will be a very different day in celebration of the festival's 50th anniversary.
In addition to the performers, information about ticket prices and sales will be released on Tuesday. Stay tuned to whereyat.com for more announcement and news on Jazz Fest.
