Foo Fighters, Kendrick, LCD Soundsystem and DJ Snake Top Voodoo 2017 Lineup

Last week, Foo Fighters made news when out of the blue they released the single “Run,” and made more when its video was viewed 2.2 million times in the first 24 hours. Today, they’re in the news again as they’re slated to return to the Voodoo Music and Arts Experience, along with Kendrick Lamar, The Killers, LCD Soundsystem and DJ Snake.

Tuesday morning, the Voodoo Music and Arts Experience will release its talent lineup for this year’s festival. Voodoo will take October 27-29 in City Park, and this will be the second year that C3 Presents will produce Voodoo, which benefited from a more focused lineup with a more intuitive layout last year that addressed previous years' soundbleed issues. At a time when even the festival’s good years felt provisional, Voodoo 2016 raised the possibility that a corner had been turned.

Voodoo News: The New Voodoo, and the Weekend at Le Plur

Sunday at Voodoo felt a little like the last day of high school. The festival only had a few hours left in it, and so did the summer festival season. On Saturday, Saint Motel and Shakey Graves announced that their sets were the last of their tours, and I’m sure the same was true on Sunday for a number of the acts. Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals have been one of the winners of the season as he found an audience around the country one mid-afternoon set at a time.

Voodoo News: Sundays are For Hangovers and Hanging Out

Sunday frequently seems like Voodoo’s afterparty as part of Saturday night’s crowd heads back to wherever for work on Monday, while others never make it back from Frenchmen Street. Those who found their way back yesterday were in no hurry. They had Saturday to sleep off, or they wanted to watch the Saints, and it looks like Voodoo programmed knowing that would be the case. The day started well but with little fanfare.
