Jam Cruise will celebrate the release of their lineup during New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The iconic festival at sea will announce the lineup for their 2020 sailing, which will make stops at Ocean Cay, Bahamas and Costa Maya, Mexico, on Thursday, May 2nd. The lineup will be celebrated with an announcement party during the sold-out show NOLA 50: Celebrating The Music of New Orleans, taking place at the intimate French Quarter venue One Eyed Jacks on Friday, May 3rd.Approaching its 18th sailing, Jam Cruise has cemented itself as one of the most important and influential events in the jam and funk scenes. It is one of the most unique and special festivals of the year, and the overwhelming sense of community that it creates is well known. Jazz Fest, of course, also promotes similar feelings of connectivity, making it the perfect destination for Jam Cruise and their fans to celebrate the release of their exciting new lineup.Last year’s Jam Cruise lineup featured Umphrey’s McGee, Galactic, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Kamasi Washington, Khruangbin, The Motet, Turkuaz, and more, with artists-at-large such as Skerik, Roosevelt Collier, and Brandon “Taz” Niederauer. Previous sailings have seen appearances by, among others, Lettuce, moe., The Disco Biscuits, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Snarky Puppy, and Pretty Lights.Tickets to Jam Cruise 18 go on sale on May 14th, following several opportunities for returning attendees to pre-book.
