Rage Against the Machine, the Smashing Pumpkins and Dr. John are among the more than 110 acts confirmed for the 2007 Voodoo Music Experience, which expands this year to three days to accommodate the number of artists who comprise the diverse talent lineup.
Set for Halloween weekend in City Park, New Orleans’ signature fall music event encompasses three full days of music—October 26, 27 and 28—with performances from Wilco, Tiesto in Concert, Kings of Leon, Sinead O’Connor, Common, Ben Harper and Galactic, among others. These acts will appear in the Voodoo Music Experience’s three distinct performance areas—Le Ritual, Le Flambeau and Le Carnival—each of which highlights a unique side of the personality of New Orleans.
For its ninth consecutive year–and despite 2005’s devastation to the region–the Voodoo Music Experience will again take place in City Park in the shadow of the New Orleans Museum of Art and just minutes from the historic French Quarter and Central Business District.
“We are pleased that the 2007 Voodoo Music Experience is expanding to three days,” says New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin. “This powerful statement of confidence in New Orleans’ recovery is a further sign that music and culture define who we are and will play a pivotal role in rebuilding our great city.”
