2013 Round Up

It's easy to draw energy from places like New Orleans, Louisiana. With live, acoustic music ringing in your years and southern, home-cooked style meals found on every street corner, this city is truly winning in every category. The culture found here in 'Nawlins is strong and it can easily be seen from the outer fence of the cities largest park during the Voodoo Music and Arts Experience held every October.

Voodoo Festival 2013
The air was crisp but c'mon now, we all know that would never stop a genuine festival goer from overly enjoying themselves. Who couldn't enjoy themselves surrounded by thousands of music lovers and acts such as Nine Inch Nails, Kid Rock, and Bassnectar only hours apart from one another?

Add Halloween into the mix, with a few dozen animals onesies, and what you have yourself, is a dang good time!

The Voodoo Music Festival was first held on 30 October 1999 at Tad Gormley Stadium in City Park. Planned and executed by Steve Rehage, CEO of Rehage Entertainment, the festival consisted of three stages and many local and national acts.

The Voodoo Festival started with very humble beginnings in 1999 as a one day music festival in Tad Gormley Stadium in New Orleans with an attendance of about 8,000 people, the headlining artist was Wyclef Jean and The Fugees. The following year expanded to 2 days and drew attention with a performance by Eminem, whose fame had exploded just before the festival, bringing Voodoo to the attention of music fans from around the world. In 2006, Voodoo separated the show into 3 distinct areas (Le Ritual, Le Flambeau and Le Carnival) on six stages. Each area was designed to showcase uniquely different sides of the personality of the festival and New Orleans. “Le Flambeau” features music and sounds consistent with the hometown style of The Big Easy. “Le Ritual” features more mainstream music we’re all familiar with, and finally “Le Carnival” features indie bands, burlesque, and circus acts. In 2007, The festival expanded to 3 days and broke all previous attendance records with an estimate 100,000+ fans.
