NEW ORLEANS JAZZ FEST PREMIERES FIRST LIVE
TELEVISION BROADCAST ON AXS TV
AXS TV continues to showcase its commitment to live music
with a celebration of Americana music and New Orleans culture via a new partnership with the
New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell. The network will broadcast live
throughout the 7-day festival from April 26 thru May 5, 2013 including live segments in its
nightly program AXSLive and with continuous live festival, concert and event coverage from
Friday, May 3 through Sunday, May 5, 2013.
The ongoing, shared commitment to place music, artists and fans together solidified a first of its
kind partnership for both AXS TV and New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Strengthening its
position as the premier destination for 100% live music, news and trends, daily coverage from
the festival culminating in the 3-day live broadcast of Jazz Fest is a programming commitment
not previously made by the network. For Jazz Fest, the AXS TV live television partnership
signifies a commitment to bring their dedicated fans and music fans nationwide the highest
quality LIVE broadcast available.
“AXS TV’s broadcast partnership with New Orleans Jazz Fest reflects our commitment to both
music and live entertainment. Week long coverage from New Orleans with 3 days of continuous
live music is an experience only AXS TV will deliver,” said Mark Cuban, AXS TV Chairman
Quint Davis, producer/director of the Festival, said, “Joining forces with AXS TV will allow
Jazz Fest to further our goal of placing New Orleans and Louisiana culture alongside the biggest
names in music and bringing this one-of-a-kind celebration to the world. If you can't get to Jazz
Fest in person, watching it live on AXS TV will definitely be the next best thing."
Additional details on the AXS TV line-up and complete festival coverage will be announced in
the coming weeks.
