If Voodoo followed the same procedure as in past years, you would already know the festival’s complete lineup. But promoter Stephen Rehage decided to do things differently this year by announcing an act every so often. This week must have been circled on his calendar for announcing Blink-182.
Scheduled for Oct. 28-30 at New Orleans’ City Park, in addition to the aforementioned artists this year’s Voodoo will also include performances by Dr. John & The Lower 911, X, Social Distortion, Girl Talk, Major Lazer, Mike Relm, Portugal. The Man, City and Colour, Fitz & The Tantrums, Mates Of State, Ozomatli, The New Orleans Bingo! Show, Givers and Soul Rebels Brass Band, plus there’s more acts to be announced.
Although Voodoo has already assembled a lengthy list of bands and artists, it has yet to lay out its day-to-day schedules, so there’s no telling who’s playing on which days. That is, except for instances where the acts have already listed a specific Voodoo date on their own schedules. Soundgarden, for example, lists Voodoo as the band’s Oct. 28 gig.
Current ticket offerings for Voodoo include three-day passes priced at $150 and VIP packages carrying a $450 price tag with a bump up to $500 if you want parking with your Very Important Person experience. Visit TheVoodooExperience.com for more information.
