Jazz Festivus!

Yes there is an app for that

As you may have guessed, we LOVE Jazz Fest. The music, food, and fellowship at this New Orleans festival is world renowned, and now there’s an app for it! Seed Labs has developed the Jazz Fest app for both iPhone and Android, and it is chock-full of awesome features.

For starters, this app shows you the music lineup for every day of the festival, so you don’t need one of those old-fashioned paper guides or the information kiosk to find the band you’re looking for. The lineup is sortable by day, stage, name, and/or time slot. Customize your Jazz Fest schedule easily by adding or removing artists with one touch, and you’ll never miss your favorite act! Information about and videos of artists are available so you can go behind the scenes to learn more about the bands that are playing, and links to iTunes allow you to quickly buy and download their music. Oh, and there’s a map so you can find your way around the Fair Grounds.

Another cool feature is the Food Lineup. You can search for the munchies that you’re in the mood for, see exactly where to find it at the Fest, and the vegetarian options are clearly marked for those of you who believe meat is murder. If you find a treat that really hits the spot, you can add it to a list of favorites so you can easily find it again after you’ve had a few more drinks.

Want to share what you’re up to at the Fest with your friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter? Of course you do! The Jazz Fest app is fully integrated with your favorite social media sites, ensuring that all your friends who aren’t at Jazz Fest will become extremely jealous. As if by magic, when you take a photo of the artist you’re listening to, the caption is automatically filled in with the name of the artist and the stage. Again, this is necessary once you’ve had a few too many drinks. Those letters on your phone’s keyboard start seeming so small...

All in all, this is a very robust app with everything you need to make your Jazz Fest experience the best yet. The newest version of this app now has a radio player from Slacker which plays songs by Jazz Fest artists, and the ability to sync up the schedule you created on the Jazz Fest website with your phone. With this app, you're ready to get out there and have some fun. Just a little advice before you go: be sure to wear sunscreen, and drink plenty of water. And call your mother.
