Looking for a way to celebrate your Hallo-Weekend in New Orleans? Voodoo Music + Art Experience is coming to City Park from Oct. 25-27. While there’s talk about a weak line-up, a selection of artists, music and food can make your Voodoo experience worth while.

Three-day tickets are available for a price of $155. Tulane students are also eligible for a three-day college student discount of $10 off. But if going for three days is too much, you can still buy a one-day pass for $80. 

Music

If 80s music is your jam, Friday would be the day to go. Guns N’ Roses will be performing in the evening. Bea Miller, known for her most popular hit “I Wanna Know,” will also be performing on Friday.

On Saturday, Beck, Bassnectar, The National and Zhu will be there. For students who love rap, Post Malone and Scheck Wes will be hitting the stage on Sunday evening. With so much diversity in genres in the lineup this year, attendees should expect a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. 

Food

If you’re a foodie, Voodoo’s got things for you. Voodoo’s way of trick-or-treating is its Forked Up Food Court. All food options are available, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. Stop by the food court between artists to pick up delicious ribs at Blue Oak BBQ or a build-your own hot dog with cheese fries or tots at Dat Dog. Additional vendors include Reginelli’s Pizzeria and Boiucherie.

Art

If music isn’t your sweet escape, there will be art installations and activities around the park. From amusement rides to haunted houses and free giveaways, there’s entertainment for everybody. You can also check out the marketplace with handcrafted goods and art. 

Bring your blankets and chairs to make this festival a more comfortable one. Don’t want to stay the whole day? Come back later and still see your favorite artist. All ticket holders can enter and leave the festival at their own leisure.  

Don’t forget to deck out in your favorite Halloween costume or funky music festival attire, while matching with one of your friends for the best Instagram and Snapchat pictures. It is going to be out of this world.
