ABOUT NEW ORLEANS JAZZ & HERITAGE FESTIVAL
Jazz Fest is much more than one of the premier — and most beloved — festivals in the world. It is a signature cultural event for its home city, rivaling Mardi Gras as one of New Orleans’ global calling cards. With 12 stages of soul-stirring music—jazz, gospel, Cajun, zydeco, blues, R&B, rock, funk, African, Latin, Caribbean, folk, and much more—the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is a singular celebration. The event has showcased most of the great artists of New Orleans and Louisiana of the last half century along with renowned international performers. More information available at www.nojazzfest.com.
WWOZ 90.7 FM is a community New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Station, currently operating out of the French Market Corporation Offices in New Orleans, Louisiana. Like Mana’o Radio, they are also a listener-supported, volunteer-programmed radio station. WWOZ covers many events live in and around the city and across the United States, including broadcasting live from the famed New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival annually.
