Wow only 43 days left until Fest week begins!!!!!!! The following is a short update. We here at Jazzfestgrids have already posted 762 separate gigs on the grids with probably another 850 gigs still unannounced. One of my favorite events of fest, the 11th Annual Threadhead Patry at the Old Ironworks, went on sale on Tuesday and is almost sold out. This year the Patry features the following group of eclectic artists together with a crawfish boil, great food, wine and beer:

We Are Up and Running

As most people are aware, the website was down the last few weeks because of a technical problem with our host. We thank everyone who expressed genuine concern about the fate of the grids, but we should be back to normal in a few days. However, please be aware there will not be any other new updates before Friday afternoon. We appreciate everyone's patience. - Neil & Bart

We're Back!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome back to, the best site to plan out your Jazz Fest nights to see all the amazing musicians that New Orleans has to offer.

I’m pleased to let everyone know that we started populating the grids a little earlier this year, which means planning for Jazz Fest 2015 is here!

Bart and I will be adding shows to the grids once they have been confirmed. We will do our best, but we all know that no matter how many times we check there will be many changes so don't get upset if you don't see something up there, if it is listed wrong, if it conflicts with something else that's listed on another site - because it's all subject to change at a moment's notice. If you see something that needs to be revised or should be added, shoot me an email using the link to the left to papagrowsnyc at gmail dot com or post on the Threadhead Forum page on the official Jazz Fest Website here
