NEW ORLEANS -- The Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival released the daily times -- better known as the "cubes" -- for the 2014 event. (See daily cubes)
Among the notable time slots is the three-hour performance window for Phish, the veteran jamband from Vermont. The three-hour time slot is one of the lengthiest granted to a performer or artist in recent years.
The band is scheduled to close out the Acura Stage from 4 to 7 p.m. on the first Saturday, Apr. 27, while Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters will close the Samsung Galaxy Stage (formerly known as the Gentilly Stage) from 5:30 to 7 p.m and Robin Thicke closed the Congo Square Stage.
After Arcade Fire performs, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue will once again close out the festival on Sunday, May 4 from 5:45 to 7 p.m. -- a spot and time often occupied by the Neville Brothers until 2013 -- as John Fogerty closes the Samsung stage and Maze featuring Franky Beverly closes Congo Square.
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band will hold the main performance slot on the Acura Stage on Saturday, May 3, from 5:10 p.m. to 7 p.m. Springsteen and his band held the same spot in 2012.
