NOLA Funk Fest
NOLA Funk Fest
The New Orleans Jazz Museum is proud to host Nola Funk Fest 2023, where New Orleans' premier funk artists gather at the Jazz Museum for a 3 Day festival full of Big Easy culture, delicious food, and amazing musical acts.
Nola Funk Fest is the coming out party for The Louisiana Music & Heritage Experience, a museum of grand scale dedicated to the preservation of Louisiana’s rich musical history. This festival features programming giving attendees a taste of what the museum will offer. The festival will feature an exhibit titled I Found My Thrill: The Music and Artistry of Fats Domino and Dave Bartholomew, which will be housed at the New Orleans Jazz Museum for 6 months before embarking on a state-wide tour. Festival programming will also include two symposiums where oral histories, flavored by musical performances, will highlight the evolution of Blues and Jazz into R&B, Rock and Roll, and Funk.
To top off the programming, 21 of the City’s best local funk acts will be performing for 3 days across two stages, headlined by Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient Leo Nocentelli with Experiencing The Meters and including Grammy icons Irma Thomas, George Porter Jr. and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Nola Funk Fest aims to become the newest addition to New Orleans' annual festival schedule.
