One of the most famous festivals in New Orleans is the Jazz Festival and this year sees the line-up of a range of entertainers, including for the first time, Eric Clapton and Christina Aguilera, who will perform alongside returning acts such as Bruce Springsteen and the East Street Band, Phish, Arcade Fire and Santana.

This year's festival will run over two weekends - April 25-27 and May 1-4 and will take place at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans.

Jazz fans can make plans to attend the festival with a special package from Funway Holidays, where a five-night stay at the two-and-a-half-star Clarion Inn & Suites New Orleans costs from £965 per person. The price includes flights with United Airlines and is based on an April 23 departure.
