The all-star lineup that will brighten up the 2018 Voodoo Music and Arts Festival in New Orleans is finally out!
The annual event will be held at the City Park starting Oct. 26, Friday, until Oct. 28, Sunday.
2018 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience Lineup
Headliners for the three-day music festival include Mumford & Sons, Childish Gambino, and Arctic Monkeys.
Childish Gambino, the hip-hop alter-ego of actor/screenwriter Donald Glover, has recently released the viral "This Is America." The socially-conscious new track, accompanied by an equally "woke" music video, topped the Billboard Hot 100, defeating Drake's "Nice For What" for first place. It also went platinum.
This week, he released the full lyrics of his critically and commercially successful new track.
Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys comes out of a five-year hibernation with the release of the album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. The divisive new record is the follow-up to 2013's AM.
The indie alternative rock band is set to perform a series of sold-out shows in Europe and the United States in the next couple of weeks.
Mumford & Sons, the neo-folk band, has not released a new album since 2016 EP Johannesburg but is expected to release new music this year.
Other notable performers include Odesza, Martin Garrix, AWOLNATION, A Perfect Circle, Modest Mouse, Ty Dolla $ign, 21 Savage, Janelle Monae, Third Eye Blind, Poppy, Albert Hammond Jr, and Marilyn Manson.
What To Expect
Similar to Coachella and other music festivals, attendees can dress up in outlandish fashion for Voodoo. The event takes place on Halloween and many people wear costumes.
In addition to music, attendees can also expect marketplaces for merchandise and food, and carnival rides within the festival grounds. Other offers and amenities will also be available onsite.
This year, the music festival is also celebrating its 20th anniversary, so participants can expect a few more surprises.
General admission tickets for three days sell for $140 while three-day platinum options go for $1,250. For attendees who will be traveling to New Orleans, the festival is also offering a package that consists of passes to the concert ground and hotel accommodations.
Fans who might be a little short on cash but are desperate to go can join the "Ambassador Program" which offers a free three-day pass to anyone who sells three-day tickets. VIP upgrades and other freebies are also available.
Tickets and other offers are now available via the official website of Voodoo Festival.
