The annual New Orleans event will host a stacked lineup that also includes Jimmy Buffet, Bob Seger, Van Morrison and Gladys Knight.

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival dropped its 2019 lineup on Tuesday (Jan. 15), including some of music's biggest names across genres and eras.

The Rolling Stones top the event's 50th anniversary billing, as part of their No Filter U.S. stadium run that starts in April, as well as Katy Perry, Dave Matthews Band, "Margaritaville" rocker Jimmy Buffett, country star Chris Stapleton and Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band.

The two-weekend event runs April 25-28 and May 2-5 at the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans. The festival is the only tour date currently listed for Perry, who shares the lineup with a number of iconic female musicians including Gladys Knight, Alanis Morissette, Bonnie Raitt and Chaka Khan.

The diverse lineup also includes rapper Logic, reggaton breakout J Balvin, News Orleans native Trombone Shorty and indie darlings Tank and the Bangas. There's also a deep bench of classic rockers and music legends including Santana, Van Morrison, Al Green, John Fogerty, Tom Jones, Aaron Neville and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Jazz Fest was first produced by Newport Folk Festival co-founder George Wein in 1970. For the first time, this year the event is expanding to four days each weekend.
