Why We Love Lyft
Lyft has been one of the leading providers for ridesharing since it was founded in 2012 by Logan Green and John Zimmer. They have been making strides as one of the leading ridesharing companies for the music festival community and have partnered with several major music festivals in the US. They have been working to make several improvements in its app to cut down the long wait times that are inevitable within music festivals and live events.
We here at Festival Squad want all of our subscribers to make the right decision to not drive under the influence after leaving a music festival or show. If you do not have a ride arranged from a friend or family after the festival or show, PLEASE make the right choice and use Lyft as your ride back to your destination after a night of partying with all of your friends!

The Details on VooDoo Music + Art Experience
If you take a look at the lineup for VooDoo Music + Art Experience, you will see a diverse lineup that includes headliners Mumford & Sons, Childish Gambino, and the Arctic Monkeys. With the headliners already being spectacular, some of the other artists on the undercard such as ODESZA, Modest Mouse, The Revivalists, and Rufus Du Sol, the festival should draw a diverse crowd! Taking place in City Park in New Orleans, VooDoo should be a festival for anyone looking to enjoy the music throughout the day and early night and finish up their day by heading out to Bourbon street! Check out a few favorite songs by some of the artists below!
