— New Orleans JazzFest (@jazzfest) January 9, 2015
With the 2015 JazzFest lineup set about to be revealed on Monday, my thoughts have escalated into the unknown and the possible for who and what might appear this season. In the past my notions have been met with mild success, what with HangoutFest and its line-up, now firmly affixed in mid-May, often casting a who’s who of who isn’t playing JazzFest. Somehow I feel like this is my year. The Who / Joan Jett are touring ensemble at this time with a mysterious void in their tour around JazzFest, same with Hozier and Wilco; so to say they’re all candidates exceeds likelihood. As such, I shall humbly exclude them from my top 10. Therefore without further delay: prognosticate this!
