"Started in 1970, 'Jazz Fest' continues to showcase the most important names in music both locally and nationally," the festival said.

Jazz Fest 2017 will take place at the New Orleans Fair Grounds Race Course during the weekends April 28 through April 30 or May 4 through 7 and will feature about 500 artists.

Other acts include Earth, Wind & Fire, Meghan Trainor, Patti LaBelle, Elle King and Snoop Dogg.

The festival will also include a tribute to the late Buckwheat Zydeco and a special program dedicated to the music of Cuba featuring nearly a dozen Cuban artists, according to Rolling Stone.
