Next to Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest is perhaps the second most popular time to be in New Orleans. Although the city’s reputation as a jazz-filled city isn’t without merit, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (most commonly known simply as Jazz Fest) runs the musical gamut from Dixieland to hip-hop to rock, and lots of stuff in between – not to mention scores of music fans. This is one of the many reasons why a trip to New Orleans Jazz Fest requires a little pre-planning.
