In July, the sound of Blues and Jazz will once again return to Innsbruck as the prestigious New Orleans Festival pays homage to The Big Easy with Southern vibes and music.
Under the artistic direction of Markus Linder, the organizers of the Innsbruck New Orleans Festival have succeeded in inviting some of the most sought-after blues musicians, guitarists, songwriters and singers for the festival. This year’s top act will be announced soon. Last year’s event was rescheduled as “French Quarter Festival Innsbruck” as forced by the coronavirus pandemic. The 2021 New Orleans Festival will depend on pandemic restrictions at that time.
Each year, the New Orleans Festival brings together internationally recognized artists of the rootsy New Orleans landscape, jazz lovers, and bands, combos, and jazz vocal groups from across Austria. Some of the top names in groovy music have been featured at this prestigious festival—and music lovers enjoy the live acts and after-hours jam sessions.
