Rounding out the lineup are Queen Latifah, Earth, Wind & Fire, Widespread Panic, Steel Pulse, Rhiannon Giddens, the Wallflowers, Allison Russell, Béla Fleck, Stephen Marley, the Soul Rebels, Tower of Power, Nickel Creek and Samara Joy.

As always, a host of New Orleans-associated artists will perform, including Big Freedia, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Trombone Shorty, Irma Thomas, rapper Juvenile, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and the Meters’ George Porter Jr. and Leo Nocentelli.
