The Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, New Orleans’ 3-day Halloween weekend music festival, just announced a monster lineup for 2017.

 

Voodoo has been a New Orleans tradition since 1999 and has since hosted artists like Ozzy Osbourne, Outkast, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Skrillex, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Blink-182, Rage Against The Machine, and Beastie Boys. What has started as a single day festival has now become a 3-day event offering an eclectic mix of rock, hip-hop, and electronic music. Now 18 years since its inception, the Voodoo Music + Art Experience has become a showcase of New Orleans food, art, music, and culture.

 

 

The Big Easy loves to celebrate Halloween, and for three days each year New Orleanians transform City Park’s festival grounds into a spooky wonderland. Each year, thousands flock to this location to join the ritual and “worship the music.” Local vendors, wild art installations, and costume clad festival goers make the Voodoo Experience a unique and increasingly popular Crescent City event.

 

This year’s lineup follows in the Voodoo tradition of offering big-name artists of various genres. Headliners include Kendrick Lamar, Foo Fighters, The Killers, LCD Soundsystem, and DJ Snake. Other notable artists include Galantis, Dillon Francis, Kehlani, Post Malone, Miguel, RL Grime, Yellow Claw, NGHTMRE, Crystal Castles, Louis The Child, Autograf, Joyride, Illenium, and Mija. Voodoo also features local and up-and-coming artists like Rich Chigga, Flow Tribe, Pell, Aminé, Alfred Banks, and Unicorn Fukr.

 

Three-day GA and VIP tickets go on sale this Friday (6/9) at 10am CT. For more information, check out the official Voodoo Experience website.
