2019 Jazz Fest Draws In 475,000

2013 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Music Festival - Day 1

The total attendance figure is out for this year's Jazz Fest in New Orleans.

Officials announced yesterday that the eight-day, 50th anniversary event drew 475,000 people to the Fairgrounds.

That's about 25,000 more than last year, though the 2018 musical extravaganza was only a seven-day, two-weekend event, organizers opted to add an eighth day to the schedule this year.
