Pick one

Bethlehem, PA is the home of MuskFest which sounds like it should include the greatest music in the world, no limitations on country, region, or city given.

New Orleans is home to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival which sounds like it should be have musical acts, arts, and crafts from only one small American city.

However, closer examination reveals the following -
MusikFest - Headliners - Earth, Wind, Fire. Poison (the original lineup), Lez Zeppelin, and Dennis DeYoung. Jethro Tull and Roseanne Cash will also be making appearances. Each of these concerts is extra money. The actual daytime fest features far less known acts of local origination generally none of which is well known even around here.

JazzFest - Headliners - Allison Krauss, Billy Joel, The Neville Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Tim McGraw, Santana all for the low price of 40. Beer is 3. Then there are the really good acts like Galactic and Tab and Anders.

Guess where I will be?
