neworleans_jazzfest_header_2014The lineup for the 45th annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is out and I’m not sure I have an adjective to describe how AWESOME it is. Eric ClaptonBruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Christina Aguilera, Phish, Santana, Arcade Fire and Robin Thicke are just a few of the acts that will perform at the annual multi-weekend throw down in the Big Easy. Perhaps the biggest question surrounding the festival is who will be playing the coveted late night shows. Check out the official lineup video after the break. >>
