Nas with Special Guests The Soul Rebels, Maroon 5, King of Leon, Usher & The Roots, Snoop Dogg, and Many World-Class Performers

The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival will be hosting Tom Petty and the Heartbreaks on their anniversary tour run. In addition, Stevie Wonder will be headlining the event with Maroon 5 and Dave Matthew with Tim Reynolds.

Nas with special guests The Soul Rebels is the set of the festival. Hands down, this set is my favorite before the first note is played. These two talented groups of musicians will take hiphop to another level at Jazz Fest.
