Bootsy Collins, Jack White, Green Day and Neil Young Set To Perform At Voodoo Experience 2012

Jack White
The 14th annual Voodoo Music and Arts Experience will showcase a slew of big-name talent come October. The three-day festival will take place in New Orleans' City Park on October 26-28. Some of the musical acts scheduled to hit the stage at the festival include Green Day, Jack White, Bootsy Collins, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Dave Stewart, Thomas Dolby, Skrillex, Silversun Pickups and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, among many other talented performers.

The inaugural Voodoo Experience took place on October 30, 1999. It was a one-day event held at Tad Gormley Stadium in City Park. The festival drew about 8,000 people, and Wyclef Jean and the Refugee All-Stars were the headliners. The festival has grown considerably over the years since its fairly humble beginnings. Now going into its 14th year, the annual event has hosted more than 450 artists and has drawn close to a million attendees. Also, the festival has been twice nominated for Pollstar's Music Festival of the Year. For more info about the festival, visit their website.
