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. 

 

Local acts on the roster include The Breton Sound and Unicorn Fukr. The fest traditionally adds lots of acts closer to the actual event. So, keep your eyes open.

 

Tickets are also on sale now, but only full weekend passes. The general admission package goes for 140 bucks and the VIP tickets are 400 dollars, according to a release. You can buy them online here.
