    Makes it worse that they're all billed higher than MMJ and a few others

    MMJ are first runners-up to Paul Simon on the second Friday.

    Year-in, year-out, Jazzfest is the best fest in the land because a) it pays at least lip service to America's greatest popular musical tradition(s), and b) it's not just another corporate package deal of touring artists but an expression of a distinctive local and regional culture. The undercard contains several dozen acts I'd rather see than My Morning Jacket's boring wankery.

    How could anyone call a lineup that has The Isley Brothers, Sharon Jones, Taj Mahal, Buddy Guy, Lauryn Hill and Dr. John sitting in the middle top heavy?

    They will conflict, most likely, on stages at opposite ends of the festival site.

    I'll clarify that since I didn't express it well initially. I meant that there were a lot of good big name acts in the top few lines compared to several other festival lineups I've seen announced so far. I didn't mean to imply that those in the middle were weak, such as the ones you named. There's actually a lot more artists displayed on the festival website that didn't even make it onto the poster. I might try to go for a day or two the second weekend if I can swing it.

    It's not top heavy for people who care about traditional New Orleans music. And since it is spread out over 6 or 7 days, any one day only has 1-3 of the "big" names.

    jazz fest is an absolute blast for those who have never been. it's not even about the 'big acts' - the fun comes from walking around and checking out all the random acts playing throughout the day. It's nice to catch the headlining set at the end of the day, but there's like eights stages going at once featuring various niche genres. There is a ton of jazz, blues, funk, country, and world music that you would have trouble finding at most other festivals. The gospel tent is one of my favorite places to hang out. I can usually handle only two or three days a year, but it is a unique festival that everyone should try to hit at least once IMO

    Decent lineup for sure. Definitely much better than Bonnaroo and Sasquatch! Someone tag the poster...

    Btw I did end up going for a day last year and for being at a racetrack it's not a bad festival. It was really crowded the day we went and you couldn't get near the stage for Stevie, but Bill Murray walked by us
