Voodoo Experience Day 3 Festival Wrap-Up

Sadly all good things must come to an end and the final day of Voodoo Experience has arrived!  After rocking out on day two with Snoop Dogg and Blink 182, the third and final day of Voodoo Experience showed no signs of slowing down. We were able to catch early sets from Miracle At St. Anna, The Sheepdogs, Fleur de Tease, and Givers, followed by an afternoon with Fishbone, TV On The Radio, Cheap Trick, The Raconteurs, and Fatboy Slim.

 

It was certainly an interesting day, probably one of the most diverse of the festival overall. Things were going quite well until there was an unfortunate incident with rappers Odd Future, who decided for one reason or another to give photographers some issues. We don’t have much to comment on the incident other than it was totally uncalled for and certainly did nothing to better the groups already questionable reputation. More about the incident can be found here!

 

Despite the incident with Odd Future the rest of the day went well! The Raconteurs performance marked Jack White’s return to the group, and they drew in a huge crowd, not typical of last day of a festival. We can all hope that their performance is a sign of things to come and we will certainly keep our ears open for news in the coming months. After checking out The Raconteurs for awhile, we headed over to catch Fatboy Slim and close out our wonderful weekend at Voodoo Experience! All we can say to sum up the festival is Voodoo Experience offers up the most diverse mix of music of any festival to date and we certainly can’t wait to worship the music in New Orleans again next year!

We spoke with many bands at this year’s festival, check them out below:

Worship The Music With Us At The Voodoo Experience Music And Arts Festival In New Orleans!

It is that time of year again and we have made the trip down to beautiful New Orleans, LA for the Voodoo Experience Music And Arts Festival held annually at City Park in the heart of New Orleans garden district and minutes from the legendary French Quarter. Even after attending music festivals such as Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, I still feel that Voodoo Experience is one of the most musically diverse and does an excellent job of providing entertainment to music fans of all ages, races, etc. Voodoo has it all!  This year featured one of the most eclectic line-ups with bands such as Soundgarden, My Chemical Romance, TV On The Radio, Band Of Horses, Blink 182, Snoop Dogg, Civil Twilight, Boots Electric, and The Raconteurs to name a few.

Music festivals in general are a fantastic way for bands to share their music with a wider audience and provide the audience the chance to step outside of the box and listen to something they have never heard before that may not be from the genre they normally listen.

This is PCM’s second year attending Voodoo Experience and like last year I have come back with a list of bands whose performances have blown me away and it seems like that list gets longer and longer each year! We were also able to chat with many of the artist’s playing this year’s festival, so stay tuned for tons of interviews coming your way!

We enjoyed sets on Friday from Dangermuffin (interview), Force Feed Radio (interview), The Static Jacks, Civil Twilight, The Wombats, Blind Pilot, Mates of State, Ani DiFranco, Red Baraat, Fitz and The Tantrums (interview), My Chemical Romance, The Vettes, and Soundgarden. See photo gallery from Day One below!

We Continue to Worship The Music At Voodoo Experience Day 2

The temperatures may have dropped on Friday night, however the blistering sets from Soundgarden and My Chemical Romance did a fantastic job of keeping us warmed up and blazing the path into day two of Voodoo Experience in New Orleans City Park.

Saturday’s line-up was the one I was most excited to see and we were able to arrive to the festival ground early to catch sets from The Treme Brass Band, The Soul Rebels Brass Band, Ozomatli, and City and Colour, as well as, main stages acts Boots Electric, Mastodon, Social Distortion, Snoop Dogg, Girl Talk, and Blink 182 later in the evening.

We could not ask for a better way to wake up than to the sounds of The Treme Brass Band and the raw energy that goes into a set from The Soul Rebels Brass Band, both definitely had our feet tapping and waist shaking despite playing early on in the day. Despite loving every moment of the two brass bands my highlight performance of the day has to go to Ozomatli, whose blend of hip-hop, funk, and everything else captured us from start to finish.  We just could not tear our eyes away from this band, pity they only played for an hour, as I feel we could have watched them all day long.

After Ozomatli came a rocking set from Mastodon, one of the few metal/hard rock bands on this year’s line-up, who I have to say certainly held their own, drawing in a fairly good size crowd to the main stage. The evening closed out with sets from Social Distortion, whose singer Mike Ness seemed a bit irritated that multiple bands were playing various festival stages all at the same time, Snoop Dogg, and Blink 182.  Snoop drew a huge crowd to the main stage, most of whom stayed to finish out the evening rocking out with Blink 182.
