For weeks, our email has been blowing up with festival fans digging around for The Voodoo Experience 2012 lineup. The three day Halloween flavored bash returns to City Park in downtown New Orleans this October 26-28, 2012 and has released an initial lineup.
Voodoo Experience alumini, Green Day, will headline the 14th annual festival. First timers Neil Young & Crazy Horse will join festival whores Skrillex and Justice. Other artists in the first round: AWOLNATION, Bootsy Collins, Tomahawk, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, K’Naan, and Gary Clark Jr.
Other huge news is that for the first time ever, festival fans will be able to camp out in City Park, a rarity for downtown music festivals. Camping packages are sold separately from tickets with campsites starting at $150 for a GA camping pass for two people. Yeah, that sounds expensive, but once you start looking at hotels near the French Quarter, camping in the swamp is a steal.
Three day general admission tickets start at $175 and VIP will cost you $500. Stay tuned for plenty more lineup announcements during the summer.
