Voodoo Music + Arts Festival will make its return for their 19th year in a row this coming Halloween weekend. With four different stages spread throughout the New Orleans City Park area and 65 different acts, this festival is surely one you do not want to miss. Voodoo boasts an eclectic lineup with something for everyone; headliners range across the genre spectrum of rap, alternative, rock, and electronic. The diversity in attendees reflect this large range of artists, big and small.
The festival kicks off on Friday, October 27th. Artists for the day include headliners Kendrick Lamar, LCD Soundsystem, and Galantis, with a handful of undercard artists such as Marian Hill, NGHTMRE, Autograf, JOYRYDE, Flow Tribe, and more. Saturday, October 28th brings artists including Foo Fighters, DJ Snake, and RL Grime, plus K. Flay, Illenium, Pell, local favorite Otto, and others. To conclude the weekend is heavy-hitter Sunday, with performances by The Killers, Dillon Francis, Post Malone, Louis the Child, SNBRN, and other New Orleans local Zander. The festival is stacked from beginning to end with artists sure to bring stellar performances.
