For the first time in its 50-year history, the New Orleans Jazz Fest has been rescheduled, organizers announced Tuesday.
The annual evemt, which is usually held in the spring, is now set to occur October 8th through October 17th, according to festival officials.
“We are all ready to get together again and share that special spirit that lives at Jazz Fest,” says producer Quint Davis. “It’s taking longer than we want, but we’ll all have our celebration when the time comes.”
Are organizers being overly optimistic by rescheduling the festival for this year?
