Also playing that day is John Fogerty, Herby Hancock, Little Feat Chaka Kahn, The Radiators and some 75 other bands you may or may not have heard of but are likely all great.
As in past years, Buffett and the Coral Reefers will play at the end of the day for a one-hour-plus show.
Advance single-day tickets are $75 (thru May 1) and $85 on site. Jazzfest does not sell out, and several Parrotheads flock to the man Acura stage and plop down their belongings – lawn chairs, towels, coolers, etc. – and wander through the grounds before returning prior to the show. You can purchase your tickets in advance here.

• Thursday, May 2 (this is a blockbuster day!):
Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, Ziggy Marley, Mavis Staples, Rita Coolidge
• Friday, May 3
