The 2018 New Orleans Jazz Fest will run April 27-29 and May 3-6 at the Fair Grounds Race Course on Gentilly Boulevard. The 49th annual festival usually releases the music lineup and ticket prices in January.
In the meantime, here are details about the festival — based on the festival’s history and website — for your planning purposes. Some details may change before the festival opens its gates in 2018.
WHEN: Music begins at 11 a.m. each day of the fest, and ends by 7 p.m. In 2018, the first weekend runs from April 27 to 29, and the second weekend begins on a Thursday, running May 3 to 6.
WHERE: Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, 1751 Gentilly Blvd., New Orleans, 70119
ADMISSION: Advance, single-day tickets prices will be announced in early 2018. (In 2017, adult tickets at the gate were $80.) Tickets for children have traditionally been $5 (available at the gate only, ages 2-10).
Single-day tickets to Jazz Fest are sold by the weekend, with each ticket valid for a single day’s attendance. General-admission Jazz Fest tickets are subject to additional service fees and handling charges.
