Voodoo Music Experience

Late October
The Voodoo Music Experience is an annual music festival that takes place in New Orleans, La., over a three-day weekend in late October. The event debuted in 1999 with the aim of showcasing the verve and diversity of New Orleans' renowned music scene, as well as bringing famed acts to the city. More than 120 musicians performed at the event in 2007.
Performers are grouped into three categories: "Le Ritual" for established musicians; "Le Flambeau" for artists who reflect New Orleans' musical history and traditions; and "Le Carnival" for musicians and performance artists from New Orleans' underground art and bohemian scene. Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Plain White Ts, Dr. John, the Neville Brothers, and Ratty Scurvics Singularity are all among past Voodoo Music Experience performers. Up to 93,000 fans attend each festival.
