Additional participating artists and content details will be announced throughout April.

AXS announced last week that it would be broadcasting from the New Orleans Jazz and heritage Festival on its second weekend. It has an upcoming country music show on April 6 from Las Vegas during ACM weekend. That show, "OutNumber Hunger Live," will feature the Band Perry, Brantley Gilbert, Florida Georgia Line and others.
