New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has a massive lineup planned for this year’s 2020 festival, but with the recent news of the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak nationwide, it just doesn’t make sense that we’ll see people arriving in the Big Easy in droves to celebrate music in about 45 days.

The festival organizers just confirmed today that they’ll be moving the entire thing to this fall, with official new dates to get confirmed soon.

Anyone who has purchased tickets already can keep them for the fall event.

Sad news, but necessary. Maybe this means I can make this year. Fingers crossed. 🤞🏻
