New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
A two-weekend event in the city where the spring comes early, the beer flows freely and the dancing comes easy, Jazzfest is the American music lovers' rendezvous. This is a blow-out extravaganza offering music and culture galore. Acts ranging from jazz, zydeco and Afro-Caribbean to folk, blues and gospel appear on nearly a dozen stages.
Bigger crowds show up each year from all over North America, Europe and East Asia, for what has become, arguably, the most diverse music festival on the continent. In fact, though attendance is now pushing half a million, this may still be one of the best weekends of music and other diversions that you can find.
