Voodoo Music + Arts Experience
Voodoo is a musical gumbo stirring together music, art, community, cuisine, and everything else under the sun and above the Louisiana swamps. Voodoo attracts the mystics, madmen, femme fatales, gods, goddesses, and music lovers of all kinds under one collective consciousness. The Ritual.

I used to LOVE Voodoo Fest until they moved locations. Now all the stages are crammed on top of each other and you can hear one stage when you are standing at another. The line-up has been decent, but the vibes just aren't the same since they moved. I probably won't go back unless they move it to the old location and bring back camping.

For six years I've attended Voodoo & I haven't been disappointed once. I will say it's about time to bring Jack White back. No doubt you guys made the right call due to rain/flooding/bands backing out. I enjoyed the hell out of Friday & Saturday I can't wait till next year!

10 years of VooDoo and we have never been disappointed. Sure we had our heart set on Sundays line up but we were also wading in the mud Saturday night and truthfully were dreading getting soaked to the bone again. Ironically we had already mustered up some courage and putting on our rain gear when we got the phone call that it was cancelled (no matter how old you are your parents will keep tabs on you)!! It was still worth it and I pray for many more voodoo's to come!! Thanks VooDoo! Bring back camping! ????

We had a great time! Friday was great! Props for getting Florence! Her show was one of the best things I've ever saw. Whule ole we didn't go Saturday because the weather was crap, we're glad Voodoo cancelled Sunday and will be returning a portion of people's money. Five stars for sure, thank you Voodoo!
