NOLA - Six of SaturnsSix of Saturns is our annual festival celebration of music, visions and the collaborative spirit of New Orleans. For two weeks each spring, we gather to revel in the beats of the bayou, its musical legacy and commune with stage legends, big band street performers, activists and artists of every feather.

The name Six of Saturns is a mystical tarot to honor Sun Ra's Trip to Saturn, our numerical place in the universe (600 Carondelet) and the many cosmic connections of Jazz to this land. It's a fortune that always ends with "yes."

Six of Saturns happens once a year, so make sure you catch next year's, and to stay up to date with all Ace New Orleans happenings, subscribe to the A-List
