I have wanted to go for a long time. I don't know anything about the logistics of this festival per say but I have a lot of family from NOLA and can attest there ain't no party like a Nawlins party. I'm sure you will have a blast if you go.
I got the $77 presale tixs to this, figured why not. NOLA at halloween would be cool in itself and jesus $26 bucks a day? thats crazy to me. Looks like they got Green Day in a exclusive 2012 US festival appearance as a headliner. I'm not expecting much so thats halfway decent I guess.
New Orleans’ Voodoo Experience has revealed the rest of its 2012 lineup. Along with previously-confirmed heavyweights like Green Day, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Skrillex, and Justice, the festival’s 14th go-around promises Jack White, The Avett Brothers, Silversun Pickups, Kaskade, Gary Clark Jr., Bootsy Collins, Dave Stewart, and Thomas Dolby.
Also playing are Marcia Ball, George Porter Jr., Die Antwoord, AWOLNATION, Toots and the Maytals, Soul Rebels Brass Band, Say Anything, The Gaslamp Killer, Borgore, Nervo, Modestep, Delta Rae, and more.
"HIGH END RAP MUSIC! GHETTO STADIUM SHIT! THEY AIN'T WANT US AT THE FESTIVALS
NOW WE WILL RUN THEM!"
It's beyond terrible. They take no big risks by booking a bunch of acts that have already played in new orleans within the last few years. Then fill the bottom tier with local acts and djs like beverly skills that play what seems like every week here and are horrible. I don't know, maybe coachella spoiled me, but this festival is bullshit.
I'm surprised this thread doesn't have more hits so close to the fest. It is 2012, right? I guess no one is going? I'm considering...but $200 and all the hassle of getting there and back every day might not be worth the 4 acts I'd like to see.
