We’re getting on that time of the year where all the New Orleans Jazz Fest late-nights are getting announced and the grids are filling in, and there’s plenty more that’s left to be revealed. LIVE music blog will have a team down there ready to cover as much as we can stay awake for, but some of us will be back home in our respective cities and watching the highlights from the sideline. Thankfully AXS TV will be the partner for the festival and they’ll be broadcasting during the second weekend. They’re saying they’ll have music from Santana, Robert Plant, The String Cheese Incident, Alabama Shakes and tons more.

For the second year in a row, AXS TV will be the official broadcaster of the 2014 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival – and we couldn’t be more excited!

Now in it’s 45th year, the annual music festival gathers together some of music’s biggest names to celebrate the culture and passion of the Big Easy. AXS TV will be on hand Thursday, May 1 through Sunday, May 4 to bring you over 24 hours of LIVE coverage – with performances by Santana, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, The String Cheese Incident, John Fogerty, Alabama Shakes, Boz Scaggs, The Avett Brothers, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue and SO MUCH MORE!

“Extending the unique Jazz Fest festival atmosphere to anyone who can’t be there in person makes all of us extremely proud that these once-in-a-lifetime performances, and the unique total experience of the Festival itself, will reach across the nation through AXS TV’s 24 hours of LIVE broadcasts,” said Quint Davis, Jazz Fest producer and director.

This is an historic undertaking for both the network and the Festival, as it will be the first four-day live music broadcast in TV HISTORY! So don’t miss the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival this May, only on AXS TV, and brought to you by StubHub.
