The Who, Stevie Nicks and Foo Fighters will join Lizzo, Lionel Richie, Lenny Kravitz, The Avett Brothers and Elvis Costello at the 2020 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, organizers announced Thursday.
The festival, which annually celebrates the culture and heritage of New Orleans and Louisiana alongside performances by national and international artists, is scheduled over two weekends in the spring — April 23-26 and April 30-May 3 — at the Fair Grounds Race Course. More than 650 bands covering many genres of music will perform on 14 stages during the eight-day event.
Singer-rapper Lizzo dominated the pop, R&B and rap charts in 2019 with songs like “Truth Hurts” and “Good As Hell.” Her major-label debut, “Cuz I Love You,” garnered eight Grammy Award nominations, including album of the year, song of the year, record of the year and best new artist. She’s also up for six NAACP Image Awards and was named Entertainer of the Year by The Associated Press and Time magazine.
