Voodoo Drops 2016 Lineup


As the mercury rises, thoughts are already turning to fall. Fortunately, there is lots to look forward to. Today, the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience revealed their lineup for the Halloween weekend (10.28-10.30) fete. Tool, Arcade Fire, The Weeknd, The Chainsmokers, Die Antwood, and Les Claypool are just a few of the big names on the 2016 roster. 


Bad JuJu: Voodoo Cancels Sunday Shows


Despite two days of rituals, the weather gods unleashed their wrath on Voodoo Music + Art Experience today. Organizers announced that due to the stormy weather, the final day of the popular fest in City Park will be cancelled.


Today In NOLA 11.1.15


Today in New Orleans, Voodoo Experience wraps up and the Saints take on the Giants at home. The Saenger is putting on a production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, Cinderella, and Zeitgeist is screening Nasty Baby. Before all this, the ceiling of the Sistene Chapel was exhibited to the public for the first time (1512), Shakespeare’s Othello was presented for the first time in London (1604), JFK announced his idea of the Peace Corps (1960), Larry Flynt was born (1942), former first lady Marnie Eisenhower died (1979), and it's World Vegan Day. Check these out:


Today In NOLA 10.31.15


Happy Halloween! Grab your best costumes because today in New Orleans, there are plenty of spooky ways to celebrate. It’s day 2 of Voodoo Experience, and The Sugar Mill is hosting Hell’s Gala. It’s the 20th Annual Halloween Parade at Molly’s at the Market. If you’re into vampires, consider checking out the annual Ann Rice conference, UnDead Con, at the Hilton Garden Inn! On this day in 1985, Hurricane Juan made his first of two stops in Louisiana, causing days-worth of torrential downpours. With this hurricane season on its way out, check out more frightful happenings this All Hallows’ Eve. 


Viewdoo


Anyone who ventured downtown last night can confirm that the Halloween festivities have hit a fever pitch. With the start of Voodoo Fest, costuming, consumption, and concerts are nearing peak levels. But, what about of those of us stuck in an office? Despair not! In 2015, the music will be live-streamed.


Today In NOLA 10.30.15


Today in Nola, kick off Halloweekend with the first day of Voodoo Experience at City Park. The House of Blues will celebrate the wicked and lewd with the Bad Girls of Burlesque, and Goatwhore will rock out at House of Shock. In movie news, Zeitgeist will be screening The Keeping Room. On this day in Louisiana 2002, the then Hornets won their first NFL game in New Orleans against Utah. Now, more modern day happenings.


Spooky Storms: Halloween Weather Outlook


The skies are blue today, but come Halloween weekend, the weather may be giving revelers the blues. Forecasters are predicting a wet weekend with Halloween set to be storm central. The chances of thunderstorms on Saturday (10.31) night are close to 100 percent according to the National Weather Service (NWS).


Nice Cubes: Voodoo Releases Sched


Florence and the Machine or Girl Talk? Ozzy or Steve Angello? The fall is rife with music decisions. Voodoo Fest, which has followed Jazz Fest’s lead in referring to its schedule as “cubes,” released its stage-by-stage lineup yesterday evening.


Voodoo Casts A Wider Spell


Johnny Rotten has not faded away. In fact, the punk legend will be playing the 2015 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience. The Halloween weekend fest announced the addition of John Lydon’s Public Image to the lineup today. EDM favorite Steve Angello as well as Metric, Peaches and Ruby Amanfu will also be joining the bill.


What's the Deal With Fall Tickets?


Summer may be slow season, but now is the time to stash those shekels for fall. Tickets for Jery Seinfeld's return to the Saenger and single day tickets for the Voodoo Art + Music Experience go on sale this week.
