Full Jazzfest Lineup Announced with Rolling Stones Special Day

A surprising late announcement (after the initial announcement) finds the best festival in America adding a first ever Wednesday to their schedule and fulfilling the dream of having The Rolling Stones play the Fairgrounds.  

What a major score and RtBE will be there. We were pumped to catch them back in 2019 when they were scheduled to play and wrote about them in the Masters Series that month, but it never came to be. 

Now the band will headline a full day at the festival with only local acts playing before them, including RtBE favorites like Samantha Fish, New Orleans SuspectsMem Shannon and many more.  The full lineup is below with the Rolling Stones playing a special set to close the first (and probably last) ever Wednesday at Jazzfest.
