    AXS TV x NOLA Jazz and Heritage Festival?

    YES! If you can't make it to the event, you can watch it on TV from May 1 through May 5.

    The network continues its commitment to being TV's home for live music festivals, as it will be the official broadcaster of the 2014 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell. The network has acquired the rights to air the Festival live, for the second consecutive year with StubHub returning as the Official Broadcast Partner.

    Presenting its 45th annual Festival, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival—or Jazz Fest—is a wildly popular event that attracts over 400,000 visitors each year, as some of music's biggest names come together to celebrate the culture and passion of the Big Easy.

    If you can't be there for practical or logistical reasons, like work or family commitments, enjoy it from your couch.

    AXS TV will be on-site at Jazz Fest, with plans to telecast over 24 hours of live coverage from Thursday, May 1 through Sunday, May 4. This is an historic undertaking for both the network and the Festival, as it will be the first four-day live music broadcast in television history. The complete dates of the 2014 Jazz Fest are April 25 – May 4.

    Much like Jazz Fest itself, the 2014 AXS TV broadcast will feature performances by a wide array of the most popular names in music. The schedule of the entire broadcast will be released in the coming weeks, but the musical stars already confirmed to take part in the TV telecast include the following:

    Christina Aguilera
    Santana
    Arcade Fire
    Vampire Weekend
    Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters
    The String Cheese Incident
    John Fogerty
    Alabama Shakes
    Boz Scaggs
    The Avett Brothers
    Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
    John Hiatt
