NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Ace Hotel New Orleans announces the return of its festival Six of Saturn – a 10-day celebration of music, culture and collaborative spirit in its on-site concert hall, three keyscoinciding with the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, April 28-May 8. Six of Saturns will celebrate its fifth season after postponed events in 2020 and 2021.
The first wave of artists to be announced includes New Orleans-based Afro-Caribbean producer and musician ÌFÉ, who will perform tracks from their critically acclaimed 2021 record 0000 + 0000; Grammy Award-winning multi-instrumentalist Jon Cleary, who will be joined by percussionist Pedro Segundo; HaSizzle “King Of Bounce” from New Orleans; and Brass-A-Holics, the city’s beloved go-go marching band. Additional acts and adjacent lineups will be announced in the coming weeks, including a headlining performance by a very special guest, as well as talks, a gallery installation and the return of the Critic In Residence program.
“2022 marks our fifth year of Six of Saturns, but we have more to celebrate than an anniversary,” said Jevon Thompson, Three Keys Director of Music and Programming. “New Orleans is one of the best cities in the world to see live music – the city beats with a beat like no other place I’ve ever experienced – and we’ve missed hosting the many big festivals that have called New Orleans home for the past few years. 2022 will be a homecoming. We look forward to welcoming people to Six of Saturns and showcasing the magic and richness of living culture in New Orleans.”
Ahead of Six of Saturns kicking off, Three Keys will take part in the French Quarter Festival After Dark, hosting Indian Mardi Gras funk band Cha Wa for a performance on Friday, April 22, with an opening set by Kyndr Joi.
