Please turn off the end screen cards at the end of your videos! Totally takes us out of the experience. I don't even want to see the movie being promoted when this happens. Especially when it lasts for 10% of the length of the video. Last 20 seconds of a two minute video?? C'mon. I don't think you realize how annoying it is.

I'm a Jazzophile and personally don't want to see EWF, Sly Stone, Dr. John, AWB or Honky Tonk mixed in with "BeBop Jazz" acts. I won't even accept "Smooth Jazz" because its not real. Sorry.

Been going to jazz fest for years. It’s weird how little diversity they showed in this trailer. There is no such thing as separation of culture but then this trailer is almost exclusive.

there was a pretty good doc on the festival done about 1989 or so. I still have the VHS tape. I've been to 35 or 36 fests since 1982

I'll return to Jazz fest this year from Jpapan. It will be my 5th time. I couldn't live without Jazz fest.

I went to this Festival 15 times. I always called it the greatest music event in the world. But I was there for the 50th, and I cant go back. It is too big, too many people, and too little respect for other people. The smaller bands that made it what it was are now squeezed out for big names and rock acts. But at least I have the memories.

WHO DAT?! It’s about time for the BEST FEST to be a feature film. I’m a native Orleanian and along with my family- have been attending Jazz Fest since I was 9 years old. The memories we created are still a part of family reunions. We go so far back as to the days when pets and outside food and beverages were welcome. We’ve been spectators, volunteers and in more recent years have added performers. We are so diehard - we’ve even “Fested In Place”’ during COVID-19!Jazz Fest is an amazing time to make friends who become family; and to experience sounds, sights and smells you may not encounter otherwise. It’s like Christmas- you can’t wait until next year to see what’s and who is gonna happen thru; while basking and relishing in the present(s). I call it Jazz Fever and feel like a Mardi Gras Indian when it comes to picking out my Fest attire. It’ll have your soul on ‘fiyah on the bayou”! MY FEST IS BEST!! Ya heard me?💜💜💜💜💜💜

I have great memories of the festival in the '90's. I saw some amazing performers!!! I lived in Birmingham and travelled to NOLA many weekends to have fun, celebrate life and culture. Besides home, NOLA is my favorite place 🎶💗

It's about time that somebody figured out how to make this documentary. Just the logistics alone - I'd love to watch a movie that explains how they provide enough ice for the beer tents every day of JazzFest. It's 95 degrees, 95% humidity, when it rains is POURS, the race track is mud that smells like horses, something like 600 porta-johns, 16 feet below sea level, no electrical power grid on the track at all - and yet eleven seriously big music stages change artists roughly once per hour for 8 straight hours for seven days over two weekends and 80,000 people per day attend. Seriously, how the hell does this work?
