Playlist for Festival Season in New Orleans - Cover-Alls Decals

Playlist for Festival Season in New Orleans

In New Orleans, it’s festival season, and with that in mind, Car Floats and our friends at have pulled together a series of playlists to help those who plan to attend French Quarter Fest, Jazz Fest, or Bayou Boogaloo get ready. If you can’t make it, here’s a way to drive around and connect to the broad expanse of music represented at these civic institutions. 
Since the short walk from stage to stage often means walking from genre to genre, we’ve presented the music the way we hear it, with jazz next to hip-hop next to funk next to singer/songwriters next to the blues, and so on. The great Ernie K-Doe once said, “I'm not sure, but I'm almost positive that all music came from New Orleans,” and when you hear the threads of continuity in this playlist and those that follow, you’ll hear what K-Doe meant. 
The first in line is the French Quarter Festival, which takes place April 21-24. The artists in this week’s playlist will perform at some point during the weekend at the free festival with stages located in and around the French Quarter.
