When the dust settles from the summer months of music festival mania, Voodoo Music and Arts Experience will keep the party going into the fall. Last week, the festival announced their lineup for the Halloween weekend festival bash, and top names like Tool, Arcade Fire and The Weeknd will front the bill.

The festival will kick off on Oct. 28-30 in City Park in New Orleans, and will bring well over 65 bands and artists to the city. Passes for Voodoo Fest went on sale June 7, and tickets are available. On the primary market, the early bird 3-day general admission passes have sold out, leaving the second tier passes (priced at $140) available. On the resale market, 3-day passes are averaging $235, with the cheapest pass up for grabs for $184, according to data provided by TiqIQ.

Other artists including G-Eazy, The Chainsmokers, Band of Horses, Cage the Elephant, Kevin Gates, Gramatik and Anderson.Paak will take the stage over the festival weekend. Other highlights of the festival include the New Orleans food made by the top chefs in the city, as well as interactive and immersive large-scale art installations. Attendees traveling to the festival can find affordable flights to New Orleans through Hipmunk.com, as well as cheap hotels.

2015's version of festival hosted performances by Tom Morello and Slash, Deadmau5, Third Eye Blind and Chance the Rapper. The final day of the 2015 Voodoo Fest was canceled due to storms.

In addition to their headlining spot at Voodoo, Tool will also embark a brief fall tour in October, hitting Sacramento, Salt Lake City, Denver and Little Rock. To compare to to their headlining appearance, tickets for Tool's solo run are averaging $245.
