The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (most often referred to as “Jazz Fest”) revealed its 2015 lineup on Monday. Elton John makes his second American festival appearance—the first was last year’s Sunday night headlining set at Bonnaroo—and is joined by co-headliners The Who, No Doubt, and Tony Bennett paired with Lady Gaga.

Jazz Fest takes place over two weekends (April 24th – 26th and April 30th – May 3rd) at New Orleans City Park and offers a rare blend of big names, festival unicorns (last year Eric Clapton, this year Elton John), and jazz acts you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere. This year’s mix also includes Ryan Adams, Hozier, Kacey Musgraves, Wilco, John Legend, Pitbull, Keith Urban, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Buddy Guy, Jerry Lee Louis, Widespread Panic, and hundreds of others.
