NEW ORLEANS - Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Santana, Phish and Christina Aguilera are among the headliners of this year's New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Jazz Fest may also turn into a bit of a twerk fest with "Blurred Lines" singer Robin Thicke on the lineup.

In all, about 5,000 entertainers will play the festival on about a dozen stages April 25-May 4.

The lineup, announced Tuesday, includes local favorites. Among them are Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, Aaron Neville and Kermit Ruffins.

The festival's first weekend of performances is April 25-27. Performances in the second weekend start May 1 and run through May 4.
