Jazzfest and Voodoofest are AWESOME! Both reel in some of the best muscial entertainment you can find. Jazzfest is definitely the better known and it brings in more crowds, but Voodoofest is gaining in popularity and doesn't have the intense commercial feel that Jazzfest has. Both are well worth the effort to experience. Jazzfest is held APRIL 25 - MAY 4 (2003), which means get ready to sweat. Last year I was so hot, I thought I was going to evaporate away. Voodoofest was held November 2nd this year and the weather was perfect. However, last year it was freezing, so such is life, right? It is a safe bet that Jazzfest will always be accompanied by seriously hot and humid weather.

Examples of musical guests:

Jazzfest 2001: Melissa Etheridge, Lenny Kravitz, Counting Crows, The Neville Brothers, Jimmy Buffett, Better Than Ezra ,etc.

Voodoofest 2002: No Doubt, Garbage, Crystal Method, Counting Crows, Macy Gray, 311, Jack Johnson, etc.
