2018 New Orleans Sacred Music Festival

COME TOGETHER! 2018 New Orleans Sacred Music Festival!

For complete schedule, bios, information and more, please visit; www.neworleanssacredmusicfestival.org

In New Orleans, the sacred is funky! Come together with people of all faiths and no faith plus all races and cultures for an immersive and transformative

experience of spiritual music, art and food from around the world.

Now in its 7th year, The 2018 New Orleans Sacred Music Festival is entirely FREE and open to anyone and everyone. Sacred music is powerful. It can heal and uplift us and awaken the profound connections that runs through our diverse cultures and communities. Come experience rituals, art and altars, crafts, food, prayers, and workshops. Performers are drawn from all the city’s spiritual communities, and some acts are international. Both ancient and cutting-edge, the festival is fun, lively, and full of magical moments. Where else will you see Tibetan monks and Mormon elders rocking out to hip-hop and medieval chants?
