New Orleans’ Voodoo Music + Arts Experience (or as most call it, the Voodoo Fest) has been one of the fall’s biggest festivals, and while it’s generally a destination for many in the Southeast, a handful of heavier acts have ensured that it will be one in 2014 as well. Slayer, Foo Fighters, Melvins and Fishbone will be among the bands playing the Fest, which will be taking place from October 31 – November 2. Other headliners include Outkast, Skrillex, Active Monkeys, Thirty Seconds to Mars and Death From Above 1979, amongst many others.
It’s not all that shocking that Foo Fighters are playing the Fest. Their new album was recorded in eight cities, one of which was New Orleans. The album was documented by an HBO series, which will be out this fall. The band rented Preservation Hall for a week back in May that culminated in a 90-minute set. Three day passes for the festival will go on sale next Friday (27) for $150 on the Fest’s website. Here’s the full lineup:
