2016 NOLA Jazzfest Acts Announced!

Last week we guessed at who should and who would be playing the 2016 NOLA Jazz Festival, which we consider the best fest in the country.
Well today they announced the acts via this funky video:

We gotta say the lineup is pretty god damn solid. Last year we were underwhelemd with the major acts that were playing down there, not the case this year as all of the headliners would be worth saying, I am not sure I have said that about any of the years we have gone down.

Unfortunately we always book tickets early so we will be missing Pearl Jam who we caught at the Fest in 2010,

However, with Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Neil Young the second weekend (as well as numerous local acts) we can not complain in the slightest.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers join PJ to give the first weekend a bit of an old school Loollapalloza feel while long time blues warriors like Bonnie Raitt can slug it out with new school six string slingers like Gary Clark Jr.

The only downside to this?  Now we have to wait until the end of the April...It can't come soon enough!
