The city of New Orleans is home to loads of entertainment, history, and plenty of gastronomic fanfare. So, what could possibly derail anyone from visiting this gorgeous place? Well, not much, if anything. However, the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience is just another MASSIVE reason to pack some bags and get out to The Big Easy. That’s right, 2018 is coming up all New Orleans, all Voodoo Fest! Reading this year’s lineup is one of those jaw-dropping moments that define your plans months ahead of time.
As customary, the VM+AE is one of those vanguard festivals in the United States that keeps us wondering how can they possibly top the previous year’s version. Well, in celebration of their 20th anniversary, Voodoo went all out, full blown bells and whistles. The newly released lineup will be headlined by American hip-hop maestro Childish Gambino, English rock juggernauts Arctic Monkeys, and the one and only, Mumford and Sons. Just imagine, why even bother looking at the undercard? The headliners alone are worth the time-off from any daily activities. Nonetheless, there are many acts worth your undivided attention at this year’s jubilee, like A Perfect Circle, Marilyn Manson, hometown musical heroes The Revivalists, Modest Mouse, Third Eye Blind, Albert Hammond Jr., Rüfüs Du Sol, and many, many more.
This year’s lineup is THAT sublime. So, you might asking when and where in New Orleans is this extravaganza taking place? Well, here are the deets, October 26-28, 2018. Yes, Halloween weekend, at the New Orleans City Park. Could this be more perfect? So, ladies and gents, start making plans, be sure to request that time off from work, crack open that piggy bank, and get ready for some amazing food, amazing people, and amazing music in an amazing city.
