The Marriott New Orleans Hotel near the Convention Center is getting ready to welcome guests to the famous New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival taking place April 25-27 and May 1-4, 2008.
Over the years the Jazz Fest has received many honors, including being named the Festival of the Year four times by Pollstar magazine. The 2008 event marks the 39th anniversary of Jazz Fest, which the Wall Street Journal says "showcases a wider, deeper lineup of essential American musical styles than any festival in the nation," and which Life magazine has called "the country's very best music festival.''
This year, as in past years, there is scheduled to be an impressive lineup which will include: The Neville Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Jimmy Buffett, Tim McGraw, Santana, Sheryl Crow, Al Green, Diana Krall, Keyshia Cole, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, The Raconteurs, Irma Thomas and hundreds more are scheduled to appear. Along with all the musical guests, there are also a handful of distinctive craft and cultural venues, which will feature everything from African art to local handmade goods. In addition, the Louisiana Folklife Village and Native American Village will both highlight the music and traditions of the people of Louisiana and the state's indigenous people. A variety of food stands will be serving up delectable Louisiana comfort food.
The New Orleans Marriott at the Convention Center knows that jazz's greatest city needs soulful accommodations to welcome festival guests. Historic New Orleans vacation accommodations complete with deluxe new bedding, flat screen TVs, plush bathrobes and trendy décor all enhance each guests experience and make them feel at home in the Big Easy.
