Along with booking the park for the next nine years, the agreement between Voodoo organizer Rehage Entertainment and City Park includes the creation of a permanent Voodoo home within the park.
“We’re very lucky to have such great partners in the entire City Park team,” Voodoo Experience founder / producer Stephen Rehage said. “I am greatly appreciative to Bob Becker (City Park) and Stephen Perry (New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau) who worked with us to get this deal done. We look forward to celebrating with them this weekend and to working together in creating a permanent home for Voodoo in the place where it all began 12 years ago.”
The 12th annual Voodoo Festival kicks off today featuring Muse and Weezer, Ozzy Osbourne tomorrow night and My Morning Jacket Sunday. Other acts include Drake, Deadmau5, Macy Gray, Jakob Dylan, Paul Van Dyk, The Crystal Method, Galactic and more. Click here for more info.
