Voodoo Fest Moving to City Park Festival Grounds
The Voodoo Music and Art Experience has moved around quite a bit, but it hasn’t failed to deliver since it launched in 1999. Just in time for Voodoo’s 15th anniversary, City Park is in the midst of redeveloping the former South Golf Course, turning the area into permanent festival grounds.
25-I Banned in Louisiana Following Voodoo Fest Overdose
Bath salts and other synthetic drugs have been on the radars of Louisiana law enforcement for some time now. But a new substance is appearing, necessitating a new round of legal action, officials say. Today, the state announced a crackdown on a new synthetic drug known for being artificial LSD. 25-I, also known as Smiles or N-Bomb, was tied to the tragic death of 21-year-old Clayton Otwell, of Arkansas, who died after taking the drug at the Voodoo Music Experience over Halloween weekend.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse Blow Through Voodoo Fest, With a Few Tricks
Neil Young and Crazy Horse didn't bring their Old Man or Heart of Gold to Voodoo Fest's final Friday set. Instead, the center of the quartet's two-hour tour was embedded between flurries of guitar wail in one of the band's latest songs, "Walk Like a Giant." "We saw the lights and spiritual shining/Getting closer every minute/Then we skipped the rails, and we started to fail/And we folded you, and it’s not enough," Young sang. "Think about how close we came." In those words, delivered as Young's face crinkled into a world-weary grimace, the man that wrote "Ohio" and had a hand in "For What It's Worth" comes to terms with all the promises that his generation never kept.

Voodoo Vendors: Festival Fare for Health Food Junkies
