Katy Perry, Ciara Among 2019 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival Performers

Published: Thursday 17th Jan 2019 by Rashad

Festival season is upon us!

With announcements rolling in daily unveiling the A-list headliners of some of the year’s most anticipated including Coachella (Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino), Lollapalooza (Ariana Grande reportedly), Broccoli Festival (Childish Gambino, Lil Wayne), Bonnaroo (Chilidsh Gambino, Cardi B), and many more, fans of Katy Perry were particularly elated to know the songstress is among the top names tapped for the 2019 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

The ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ chanteuse took to Instagram recently to confirm she’s linked to this year’s festivities scheduled to take place in ‘The Big Easy’ on April 25-28 and May 2-5.  And, as anticipation builds on if she’ll use the outlet to unveil new music from the follow-up to 2017’s ill-fated ‘Witness’ album, equal excitement greets news of who’ll she be sharing the fest’s 50th anniversary bill with.

The funny thing is, I already had @jazzfest in my calendar for a music and food tour of one of my favorite cities, but now I’ll get to work off those calories on stage! Jazzed (I did that) to announce I’ll be performing at #jazzfest50 on April 27th! Ticket link in bio

    I’m not familiar with this Festival, but generally speaking on the history of Jazz. Jazz is another high jacked African American creation and I will leave it at that.

      There are a huge number of black jazz musicians… famously rich black jazz musicians.

    Two nonsingers at a jazz festival??

    Great! Maybe Katy Perry can wear an afro wig and do Blackface! Would it have killed them to have local jazz musicians perform? What does Ciara know about jazz? I guess.

    I’ve never heard of this festival either…

    What a disgrace to black music, black heritage, and black ancestry.

    Why is Teedra Moses not on this list, like WTF? So unfair.
