The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell  announced the music lineup for the 2011 Festival scheduled for April 29 – May 1 and May 5 – 8. With twelve stages of almost every style of roots music, Jazz Fest presents one of the entertainment world’s most diverse music lineups, including its unparalleled showcase of Louisiana’s unique culture.  Hundreds of thousands of fans annually flock  to the seven-day event that has been called America’s best festival.

The 2011 Festival will also host the largest celebration of Haitian culture in the U.S. since the devastating earthquake one year ago.  New Orleans and Haiti have shared a deep cultural connection for over three hundred years and many of the local traditions and customs owe their roots to this complex Caribbean country.  The Jazz Fest is proud and honored to host the icons of Haitian music and culture including Wyclef Jean, Tabou Combo, RAM, Boukman Eksperyans, Emeline Michel, Djakout #1, DJA-Rara and Ti-Coca & Wanga Négès.
