Voodoo News: Voodoo Changes Its Story

Last year, the Voodoo Music and Arts Experience changed its narrative for the better. The Halloween weekend festival swapped its second main stage for Le Plur in 2010, and the changes it endured in the following years appeared to tell the story of a festival in decline. Some indicators were misleading and some weren’t Voodoo’s fault.

Randolph, Lee Fields and More Play Hogs for the Cause

This year, Hogs for the Cause has expanded its musical lineup. The pork cook-off to benefit those suffering with pediatric brain cancer will this year have two musical stages and out-of-town bands Robert Randolph and the Family Band (with guest Anders Osborne), soul singer Lee Fields and the Expressions, and The Apache Relay joining Rebirth Brass Band, The Revivalists, Eric Lindell, Lost Bayou Ramblers, and Mississippi Rail Company. 

Voodoo for Christmas

It seems like we just finished with The Voodoo Experience, but it's back in the news. Today it has put a limited number of tickets on sale today for Voodoo 2013 at severely discounted prices. Next year, the festival will take place November 1-3, and three-day credentials currently cost $99, slightly more than the cost of a single day at the gate this year. LOA VIP credentials cost $300, $350 with parking. Camping for two with weekend credentials are on sale now for $248, and LOA camping is available for $2,500.
