Six of Saturns is our annual festival celebration of music, visions and the collaborative spirit of New Orleans. For two weeks each spring, we gather to revel in the beats of the bayou, its musical legacy and commune with stage legends, big band street performers, activists and artists of every feather.
This year we're celebrating the musical bones that hold us together. Expect ten nights hosted by familiar faces like Preservation Hall, Sound Observatory New Orleans, Ivan Neville, monopoli projects' SOUNDBYTES, NOJO 7 and more.
Sign up for the A-List to stay in the loop. Stars align April 27-May 6.
