Alas, the wait is over and the 2012 Jazz Fest lineup is here. Thrilled to see the return of My Morning Jacket (played Jazz Fest and Voodoo in 2010) and Al Green (Jazz Fest ’08), as well as the incomparable Herbie Hancock, Foo Fighters, Givers, a special performance by Levon Helm Band with special guest Mavis Staples, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Janelle Monae and Steve Earle among so many others. Time to start planning and waiting for the late nights and dailies to roll in over the coming months. Who are you excited to see? And also, who’s the “TBA” on there? See below for ticketing information and a few words from festival producer Quint Davis regarding this year’s lineup.
