How long will Dead & Company perform at the 2023 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival?

Will Lizzo, the Wu-Tang Clan with the Soul Rebels and Robert Plant & Alison Krauss all perform at the same time on the festival’s opening day?

And where will homegrown, multi-genre talent Jon Batiste be?

All those questions and more will be answered Tuesday when Jazz Fest’s producers unveil this year’s scheduling cubes, with performance times and stage assignments. 

They’ll also reveal updates on the festival’s food, crafts and map.

The festival previously revealed the daily artist roster, without performance times and stages.

The cubes are traditionally unveiled exactly one month before the festival’s opening day. Tuesday is March 28. The festival’s first day is Friday, April 28. 

The 2022 Jazz Fest marked the festival’s return after a two-year COVID hiatus. Last year’s festival spanned seven days at the Fair Grounds. 

This year’s event will also encompass a three-day opening weekend, April 28-30, and a four-day, Thursday through Sunday weekend, May 4-7.

May 4 is “Locals Thursday.” Louisiana residents with identification can buy two single-day tickets at the gate that day for $50 apiece.

Nearly every marquee act from the COVID-canceled 2020 and 2021 Jazz Fests that didn’t appear in 2022 will get another chance at the Fair Grounds in 2023.

That list includes flute-toting R&B force of nature Lizzo; the Grateful Dead-derived Dead & Company; alternative-folk band the Lumineers; contemporary R&B guitar hero H.E.R.; veteran rocker Melissa Etheridge; rapper Ludacris; and the world premiere of the Wu-Tang Clan’s collaboration with New Orleans’ own the Soul Rebels.

They’ll join Ed Sheeran, Mumford & Sons, Jill Scott, Santana, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Kane Brown, Leon Bridges, Kenny Loggins, Herbie Hancock, Tom Jones, Jazmine Sullivan, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, the Steve Miller Band and hundreds of local musicians on the festival’s 14 stages
