May 15, 2012 at 2:52 PM (PT)
GREEN DAY and NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE have been announced as headliners for the 2012 VOODOO MUSIC AND ARTS EXPERIENCE presented by STEPHEN REHAGE. Celebrated as one of America’s most eclectic festivals and the final musical event of the annual U.S. music festival season, the 14th VOODOO festival will be FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26th, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27th, and SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28th at NEW ORLEANS’ historic CITY PARK.
The 2012 VOODOO lineup will once again feature artists from a variety of musical genres. The preliminary lineup also includes: SKRILLEX; JUSTICE; AWOLNATION; TOMAHAWK; SAY ANYTHING; BOOTSY COLLINS; GARY CLARK JR.; K'NAAN; and PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND. VOODOO’s full line-up of 150 acts will be unveiled in the coming months.
"I believe this year’s line-up is developing into something really special," said STEPHEN REHAGE, the founder/producer of VOODOO. "GREEN DAY's set in 2004 is one of the greatest performances in the festival’s 13-year history. Having them choose to do their only U.S. show of 2012 at VOODOO is pretty extraordinary. And the confirmation of NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE is epic. They are one of a handful of artists that you hope to have the privilege to work with at some point in your career. It’s what you dream of when you create something like VOODOO."
New to this year’s annual musical celebration is on-site camping. A longtime tradition at the most renowned music festivals around the world, this is the first time it will be offered to VOODOO attendees. The inaugural camping experience will offer festival goers the chance to sleep under the stars amidst two hundred year old oak trees, picturesque lagoons and waterways of CITY PARK, just steps away from the entrance to the annual HALLOWEEN weekend music celebration.
