Today's the day they announced the 2013 Jazz Fest lineup! This will be my 3rd Jazz Fest and Albin's 5th or 6th I believe. We love this tradition. The music and food are incredible, and it is definitely one of my favorite New Orleans events. The first year I came was actually my first visit to New Orleans, so we were also house hunting. Last year, my all time favorite artist, Tom Petty played and I was over the moon.. As you can see by my chubby face, I was very pregnant. I didn't let it stop me from catching Tom, and Benny kicked the whole time. What a great day.
Once again, we will be attending this year. Looking forward to the string of friends that will no doubt be sleeping on our couch over the festival weekends. Some of my favorite picks from the lineup are..
Fleetwood Mac, BB King, The Black Keys, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews Band, Ben Harper, Band of Horses, Patti Smith, I could go on, there are hundreds more!
