Pearl Jam Headlining Voodoo Fest
Pearl Jam and Nine Inch Nails have been named as the headliners for the 15th annual Voodoo Music Experience, which will celebrate its 15th anniversary on November 1st, 2nd and 3rd at City Park's festival grounds in New Orleans. Pearl Jam will be making its Voodoo debut, while this will be Nine Inch Nails' fourth appearance at the festival. NIN frontman Trent Reznor, a one-time resident of the city, said, "Recently I haven't spent nearly enough time in my favorite city in the world and I'm happy to announce I'm bringing Nine Inch Nails to New Orleans for Voodoo."
Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready said, "New Orleans is one of the most musically and culturally rich cities in the world. We've played some of our most memorable shows there and can't wait to return this November."
Reznor will actually pull double duty at this year's festival, with his other band How To Destroy Angels also scheduled to perform.
So far 15 acts have been confirmed for the festival, including Paramore, Bassnectar, Alkaline Trio, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Gaslight Anthem and others.
Festival and camping credentials are now available on the official Voodoo website, starting at $175 for all three days. Various packages are available.
