The daily schedule for the 2017 Voodoo Fest is out, and single-day tickets are now on sale.
Kendrick Lamar, arguably the hottest rapper in the world at the moment, and the reformed LCD Soundsystem close out the fest’s first night on Friday, Oct. 27. The opening day’s bill also includes the Afghan Whigs, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Galantis, Kehlani, Benjamin Booker and Prophets of Rage, the collaboration between Chuck D of Public Enemy, guitarist Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and B-Real of Cypress Hill.
The Foo Fighters, who previously performed at Voodoo in 2014, are the big Saturday night headliner on Oct. 28. Also on Saturday’s bill are DJ Snake, Live, Brand New, RL Grime and Crystal Castles.
It almost seems that every crossroads in Louisiana has some sort of festival.
The Killers will close out the entire festival on Sunday, Oct. 29, alongside Dillon Francis, The Head and the Heart, Post Malone, Miguel, Cold War Kids and new addition the James Hunter Six.
That schedule of headliners essentially follows the same formula for the 2016 festival, which featured its big R&B/hip-hop act, The Weeknd, on opening night, the big rock act, Tool, on Saturday night, and the artsier rock band, Arcade Fire, on Sunday night.
The 19th edition of what is formally the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience will take over the City Park Festival Grounds with the same basic blueprint as last year. A total of 65 acts will perform on the fest’s four stages. Expect to see the fest’s signature art installations and the return of the elaborate haunted graveyard courtesy of The Mortuary.
Don’t be surprised if your ears are ringing more than usual.
Single day tickets as well as three-day general admission tickets, three-day Loa VIP tickets and three-day platinum tickets are available.
A three-day general admission pass is $155 plus fees. Single-day tickets are $70 on Friday and Sunday and $80 on Saturday, plus fees.
Prices will increase closer to the festival.
