Halloween weekend in New Orleans inspires wild and crazy fun for trick-or-treaters of all ages! This is a place where visitors can cut loose and have fun in all that NOLA has to offer. We are especially looking forward to the VooDoo Experience Music Festival 2012, which has featured high-profile artists for more than ten years in City Park. This high energy and exciting festival showcases four musical experiences in distinct locations: Le Ritual – mainstream music, Le Plur – electronical/dance, Le Flambeau – local flare, and Le Carnival – indie bands.
VooDoo Music Fest was originally started in 2005 as a post Hurricane Katrina tribute concert for New Orleans citizens, and the many folks who provided support and assistance to us. To this day the annual event offers three days of outstanding entertainment by a variety of award-winning artists.
