You're kidding!

That's a dream lineup!

Bluesfest is looking pretty darn good though.

Katy Perry?? Knew she'd make the move over to jazz.

"The white man had the schmaltz
The black man had the blues
No one knew what they was gonna do
But Tchaikovsky had the news...."

Perhaps she can join Keef and Mick in a rousing rendition of 'When The Saints Go Marching In'. In any event, I won't be at that stage to witness it Whistle

It is only a matter of scale! We have a lot of Aussie talent at out festival and they have a lot of American talent at theirs.

425,000 at Jazzfest last year, maybe around 100,000 at Bluesfest. There is your difference in budget for acts, plus sponsorship from Shell and the travel costs is a factor here. I love the Jazzfest lineup and look to hit there in 2020 but it will be to hit the small stages and side shows, not the massive stages and crowds. I can see David Byrne in Sydney with 4000-5000 theatre, why immerse in 40000 size crowd. Plus there is a lot of pop crap. I think Bluesfest does great, you can get close to most artists and can walk the site from top to bottom in ten minutes thereby sampling the fare. Jazzfest is another scale to Bluesfest, that could not likely be done in Australia, certainly not in Byron without 90% camping and I'm not sure I'd enjoy it as much. Could still do with some great New Orleans brass in that last announcement though.

It's worth having a look at this link and saving it if you're going next year. These are all the club shows in the city during fest and it will start filling quickly between now and late-April....and as you can see, jazzfest is way more than what's happening out at the fairgrounds. There are bands playing in the city who aren't at fest (eg JJ Grey, Govt Mule....). Jazzfest covers the whole of New Orleans...what happens at the fairgrounds is sorta like a sampler, although I've seen some of the best shows of my life out there.

So many great artists playing in the clubs. The Brecker Brothers Band & Friends would be fantastic to see.
