This summer, the sound of Blues and Jazz will return to Innsbruck as the prestigious New Orleans Festival pays homage to The Big Easy with the “French Quarter Festival Innsbruck”.
Under the artistic direction of Markus Linder, the organizers of the Innsbruck New Orleans Festival have succeeded in rescheduling the event as forced by the coronavirus pandemic. Instead of the usual four-day event, the summer breeze will be blowing through the crowd at Innsbruck for two months in a smaller format, named the “French Quarter Festival Innsbruck”. 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. This year’s lineup includes “Brennholz”, “The Vintage Retards”, “Moreland” and “Funk Station”.
