Macy Gray, 311, and Blind Boys Of Alabama are among the initial artists announced for the fourth annual Voodoo Music Experience. Set for Nov. 2 in New Orleans City Park, the event will feature more than 20 acts across three stages, including Sum 41, Counting Crows, Nappy Roots, and as previously reported, No Doubt.
Other artists who have signed on for the event are the Crystal Method, Garbage, (hed)pe, the X-ecutioners, Galactic, DJ Z-Trip, Jurassic 5, Cut Chemist, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Jack Johnson, and the North Mississippi Allstars.
As previously reported, Voodoo 2002 tickets are on sale today (Sept. 6) via Ticketmaster. Advance tickets are priced at $27.50, while admission will set concertgoers back $40 on the day of the show.
Leading up to the festival will be Road to Voodoo, a 21-date U.S. tour featuring three not-yet-revealed artists. Although dates and venues are yet to be solidified, the trek will end Nov. 1 in the Big Easy with a pre-Voodoo Music Experience bash. In addition, beginning Oct. 28, the Voodoo After Dark concert series, in conjunction with House of Blues, will present artists throughout New Orleans for a week leading up to the main event.
"It's been great to see the event grow over the last four years," Steve Rehage of event producer Rehage Entertainment said in a statement. "Our goal is to develop one of the world's greatest music festivals, with artists from varying genres coming together in New Orleans to worship the music. We now have attendees from all over the U.S.; ultimately we're creating a new Halloween tradition."
The event's official Web site has information on each of the announced performers, and will be constantly updated as new acts are added. The site also houses information on tickets, travel and accommodations, and past Voodoo festivals.
