Jazz Fest 2013 – by Ryan Hodgson-Rigsbee

Jazz Festival 2013

Photographer Ryan Hodgson-Rigsbee had a 4-day shoot at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival was once an aspiring showcase for Southeastern Louisiana music and culture, but now, in a summer schedule crammed with all kinds of regional and genre-specific festivals throughout the country, Jazz Fest endures as a respected elder. It is a festival that exists without a stereotypical demographic, a festival better described by its atmosphere than its audience. Local bands are thrilled to play it, and national headliners are honored to be invited. Across ten days, a dozen tents and stages, and a square mile of mud, thousands of participants planted their flags, danced, ate, and inherited another year’s worth of musical memories.
