    Went to this last year. Really fun time and dirt cheap. I never went a full day and only went to see NIN, The Cure, Desaparecidos, and Pearl Jam and completely got my money's worth just by seeing those sets. Definitely recommend.

    edit: tickets on sale now for $130 with the promo code VOODOO.

    This lineup would be completely horrible if Foo Fighters weren't picking up the slack.

    OutKast - they won't care by November
    Arctic Monkeys - boring
    Skrillex - nothing needs to be said

    The undercard is embarrassing.

    8/22 Aerosmith + Slash, 8/24 Nickel Creek, 8/28 Bear in Heaven, 8/31 Little Dragon, 9/11 Delta Spirit, 9/18 Owen Pallett, 9/20 Conor Oberst, 9/25 Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, 9/27 How to Dress Well, 9/28 The War on Drugs, 10/3 & 10/5 ACL W1, 10/10 CHVRCHES, 10/11 Spoon, 10/12 ACL W2, 10/13 Paul McCartney, 10/16 Rodrigo y Gabriela, 10/18 twenty one pilots, 10/19 Erasure, 11/7 Rufus Wainwright, 11/7-11/9 FFF Fest, 11/23 Caribou, 12/14 Fleetwood Mac, 12/19 The Black Keys + St. Vincent

    Arctic Monkeys are boring now? Their Coachella set a few years ago was one of the fastest pace shows I've seen, and hella good. Some of their newer material is quite a bit slower than their frantic older songs, but I would hardly call it boring. And it's freakin' popular.

    Outkast will care about their only show in N'awlins. Period.

    The undercard is never deep, although it's always varied. Getting the Melvins and DFA 1979 were big. And Gogol Bordello are a fun act on a holiday weekend.

    Yup, boring. They were boring opening for The Black Keys in 2012, and they were boring at Free Press last year. Fast paced songs doesn't make the music interesting.

    With the ridiculous number of shows on your radar, it seems queer to have to let you in on the fact that appreciation of music is subjective - and you're on the losing end of this one. The real world doesn't find Arctic Monkeys boring, and they haven't been boring when I've seen them at all - although the slower pace of the new album at ACL last year was less intense than the fast-paced Coachella set. I'm sure plenty of mofos on this board saw them at Coachella with me and found them anything but boring. But it is subjective.

    Rise Against announced their tour dates today with a few weeks between their last show and Voodoo - and no other shows in the Texas side of the Panhandle. So maybe they'll add some shows in the coming months, or maybe this is the only shot at seeing them in driving distance from Dallas/Houston/Austin/etc. With any luck their new album justifies seeing them, I enjoyed them quite a lot at L.A. Rising a few summers ago.

    Anyhow.. even if you find the lineup boring, N'awlins is NOT. And that should go without saying!

    Looking to be their final 2014 show, possibly ever.

    I don't care who or who doesn't appreciate Arctic Monkeys. I'm allowed to have an opinion about them and I stated it. I never found anything about their music that stood out or seemed unique in any way. It all sort of seemed to run together. If you find something about it interesting, by all means, enjoy.

    TomServo, stop being such a fucking salesman. You like the festival. Great. Also, Arctic Monkeys ARE boring.

    I like all festivals that actually try to put something cool together... Voodoo does that. Some festivals (like that piece of shit the Sunset Strip MF, which finally has a decent lineup this year... sorta) are just cash grabs. Voodoo is cheap as fuck and tries to cobble together a lineup that will interest the common folk and the festival nerds. I like that.

    I'd be bummed if Voodoo went away, and I always get the sense it's one year from extinction. With Outkast and Foos we're probably safe this year... but I like to get people interested in a festival I enjoy. I also sell the hell out of Lolla for no real reason other than I loves it.

    For the record, though, I hate the new footprint of the stages in City Park. Way too small, I enjoyed the more sprawling layout in previous years. It's like a postage stamp comparatively now, and with little in the way of shade and such.

    Voodoo posted an official Spotify playlist today.

    I fucking love DFA 1979. Totally stoked about this thing.
