View All Events

Held annually over Halloween weekend since its debut in 1999, the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience is known for its mix of top-tier musical acts that span a variety of genres.

Voodoo Fest has hosted more than 2,000 artists since the festival’s first run, including Pearl Jam, Metallica, Muse, Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Florence and The Machine, Paramore, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and local Louisiana artists. In 2013, Voodoo Fest celebrated its 15th anniversary by opening for the first time at New Orleans City Park’s Festival Grounds, a 50-acre green area designed to support the city's large music festivals.

The festival also features large scale, site-specific Voodoo-inspired art installations and culturally significant Louisiana dishes that attendees enjoy as they take in the sights, sounds and excitement of the musical acts on stage. Voodoo Fest regularly draws a large crowd, totaling more than a million visitors since 1999.
