Jazz Fest's first weekend will kick on Thursday, April 25. The second weekend will begin with the highly anticipated headliner of The Rolling Stones on Thursday, May 2. Both weekends will be full of music, classic Louisiana cuisine, local art, and so much more all at the Fair Grounds Race Course and Slots in Gentilly.

Early Bird tickets are currently on sale for both weekends. General admission tickets for a full four-day pass for the first weekend are $290 now and will be $320 after early bird sales end. The second weekend four-day pass is currently running for $465 and will increase to $495. For added perks and standing room closer to the stages, the fest is also offering several tiers of VIP tickets for those looking for a more luxurious experience. Ticket prices for individual days will be released closer to the festival.

Fans come for the wide range of musical performances on offer and stay all day for the food and drinks that are served. Fest attendees can expect NOLA's best red beans, crawfish etouffee, several types of po-boys, muffulettas, fresh squeezed lemonade, sno-balls, and so much more. On walks between the multiple large performance stages and tents featuring blues and gospel music, fans can peruse the Congo Square African Marketplace, the Louisiana Marketplace, and contemporary crafts among other works of art. There will also be tents dedicated to the Native American heritage of Louisiana, folklife of the state, and overall unique cultural exchange that makes the sate what it is.

Between the incredible musical headliners, food, art, and cultural experiences, this year's Jazz Fest is set to be the best one yet. Don your best BayouWear outfit and enjoy Jazz Fest 2024!
