On Tuesday morning, the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience revealed their lineup for the Halloween weekend (10.27-10.29) fete. Kendrick Lamar, Foo Fighters, The Killers, LCD Soundsystem, and DJ Snake are just a few of the big names on the 2017 roster.

For 130 bucks, festivalgoers can take part in Feast Under the Stars, an intimate 5-course meal the night before Voodoo kicks off.
