Yep...there's a whole lotta festival and not much jazz there!  NOLA's always fun but maybe they should call it New Orleans Heritage, Rock, Pop, R&B, Soul, World Music & Jazz Fesitval...in that order.

Sure, Herbie Hancock is a headliner, but the rest of the names at the top of the bill to be announced Wednesday morning are a hodge-podge of pop, rock and R&B stars from various eras.
