  • Christina Aguilera
  • Santana
  • Arcade Fire
  • Vampire Weekend

"At Jazz Fest 2013, we brought together a fantastic lineup of artists. Many of their memorable performances at the Festival live on even now through the AXS TV 'Best of the Fest' special," said Quint Davis, Jazz Fest producer and director. "This year, our 45th Anniversary Festival, the stars really aligned, and an historic moment awaits us all in presenting to the world, both live and over AXS TV, the deepest and most exciting Festival line up ever. Truly a wish list come true. Extending the unique Jazz Fest festival atmosphere to anyone who can't be there in person, makes all of us extremely proud that these once-in-a-lifetime performances, and the unique total experience of the Festival itself, will reach across the nation through AXS TV's 24 hours of live broadcasts."

The network delivered over 30 hours of live Jazz Fest coverage, giving viewers the best seat in the house for the groundbreaking event. AXS TV gives viewers the chance to relive the defining moments from the 44th Annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Sunday, Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT when it airs BEST OF NEW ORLEANS JAZZ & HERITAGE FESTIVAL 2013.
