    We had alot of people sign up but either didn't show up or didn't meet up with our group. Nonetheless the small group we did have had a wonderful time!

      Unless seats are being held for members, or reservations have been made by the meetup organizer, I generally don't update my status for general attendance at crowded events. I wasn't able to get there until 3:00, few seats were available at either stage, I didn't see any members of the group, and the lineup I'd come to see was starting on the Chop Suey Stage. I'd brought my own chair and was fortunate to find an empty space in complete shade with a great view of the performers.

    Ruby Shrieves, of our group, and I were there from 12 to 8. I absolutely loved it - we had a wonderful time dancing, second lining and just listening to all the great music. What a Fest! Also this was Ruby's first day wearing one of my FREE HUGS badges - she must have given 100 hugs, as I did. Of course we got one in return for each one given!

    Excellent time, although I didn't move between tents or join up with the group. Found my cool spot in the shade with a great view of the stage, planted my chair and relaxed.

    I just made it in from the fest I left early because I couldn't find you guys.. I am a little disappointed in myself for not checking the meetup site to see if there was a meet up area. I was looking for someone with a sign or wearing a certain t shirt. But I look forward to meeting up with you guys again soon. Paulette

    We are facing the Red Beans stage facing the sidewalk right behind the right under the tent.

    We are under the tent at the Chop Suey stage by the sound system(to the right of it).

    August 3, 2013

  • Jerry S.

    There will be hundreds of people there at the meet-up times. I suggest, for both tents, meeting on the right side of the tent (stage left) about half way between front and back. If you see me (Free Hugs badge) I will give you a small Meet-Up Music Lovers sticker. I expect to be sitting in these locations with Ruby Shrieves of our group. Our organizer may have other instructions, of course.

    I love this fest - great music, people, food, lectures, compact, Mint museum available for cooling off and real bathrooms. New and nice this year - Huge tents with several hundred folding chairs-like Jazz Fest. I enjoyed 8 hours there yesterday. I still bring 2 chairs, one for each stage, so I am assured of a seat. I'll be there all day again today and tomorrow. Come and enjoy it! i posted 35 photos at: https://plus.google.com/photos/105571771267484757920/albums/5907714327113259105?banner=pwa

    I've got to do some last minute things for tomorrow's event at Café Istanbul, so I will catch up to everyone later in the afternoon! Nira, I will text you when I'm heading to the Fest!

    Hey guys I was there yesterday and it was HOT , but I suggest that you take a break and go inside the Mint where there is good A/C . I wont be able to attend today due to contractor coming to my house . It is a great event so drink plenty of water and enjoy the great food and music . You may have to park across E. Fields and walk to Mint .

    I recently moved to New Orleans and music is a huge but not the only factor that brought me here! I am looking to find more people who are invested in the beautiful music of this city. I'll go see it alone but much more fun to do with others!
