It’s time to rally. Jazz Fest is about to fill the Fair Grounds Race Course with megastars, local legends, and music fans alike. Read our guide, then cue up a fresh playlist for these next two weekends. You'll hear some great tunes — and pocket extra-high earnings.
Drive This Weekend
This first weekend runs from Friday, April 22 through Sunday, April 24, followed by a second weekend from April 28 through May 1. You’ll see the highest number of ride requests citywide starting at 10 AM, at the Fair Grounds Race Course starting at 6 PM, and at local venues for late-night parties.
Stick to the Designated Pickup Spots
This is one of the biggest festivals in the nation. To accommodate this many attendees, local officials will enforce road closures during both weekends. You’re only permitted to use these the designated pickup spots listed here (they're also pictured in the map above). We recommend using them for drop-offs, too.
- Broad Street @ D'Abadie Street
- Desaix Boulevard @ Trafalgar Street
- City Park Avenue @ North Carrollton Avenue
Crank Up the Tunes
Hit play on a Spotify playlist, crafted especially for the occasion. You’ll delight passengers with songs by the very artists they just watched live. Even better: We’re packing select vehicles with live musicians, so riders can request in-car jazz on demand, too.
Can't get enough? The festivities will return for round two next weekend. April's the month to drive in NOLA.
