The New Orleans Heritage and Jazz Festival will return to enthral music lovers in New Orleans in October this year.
Taking to the festival’s website, the organisers have announced the lineup of the performers. The music gala will keep its audience amused for full ten days, from October 8 to 17.
Top American singers, including Lizzo and Demi Lovato, are on the list of the artists set to headline the event. Jimmy Buffett and Stevie Nicks have also been roped in to perform at the event. Local artists, including Jon Batiste, Irma Thomas, and Trombone Shorty, will also set the stage on fire.
“Not having it last year, you feel that effect, now it coming back and leading the way for other festivals to say ‘yeah, we can do this as well.’ So that’s jobs, that’s spending across all neighborhoods,” said Mark Romig with New Orleans and Company.
“That’s the restaurant business. It’s what we call heads in beds, people coming in and staying those days here. So between Oct. 8 and Oct. 17, the world will be here in New Orleans.”
Moreover, American singer and actress Demi Lovato had earlier shed light on their worries about their career taking a hit if they started living their truth. “I know what it’s like to have your dream feel like it can hold you back, but it’s quite the opposite. Now that I am living my truth, my art has just become that much greater because my art is a reflection of who I am. So now that I’m able to be more transparent with the world in who I am, they can see my art better. And they hear it better,” said the 28-year-old.
