Muse, Weezer, Drake headlining Voodoo Experience Festival

06.17.10 8 years ago

Muse, Weezer, Ozzy Osbourne, Drake, MGMT and more will be turning Halloween into a three-day weekend as they take to the stage for the 2010 Voodoo Experience Festival, in New Orleans Oct. 29-31.

Other confirmed acts include Florence and the Machine, Interpol, Hot Chip, Sigur Ros’ Jonsi, Janelle Monae and Metric. Stages will be set at City Park near the city’s French Quarters.

Tickets are already on sale: $150 gets you a three-day pass while fancy pantses can drop $500 for VIP.

The lineup was confirmed at midnight, which oddly crashed the Voodoo website for several hours. Oops.

As is the case in years past, loads of NoLa jazz bands will be present, while organizers also added a number of electronic artists like Deadmau5, which weren’t as present in the last 11 fests.

One request, folks: don’t treat Drake’s show like the folks in New York did this week.

Last year’s headliners were Eminem, KISS and Jane’s Addiction.
