I went last year, Chili Peppers were the only thing worth while, minus the Flaming Lips & Ozomatli. Will definately be there this year, awesome spot for a festi, right in the middle of a park with tight ass museums & buildings all around. real good time.

I went last year for the 1st day only and had a blast! We caught the (original) Meters, Drive By Truckers, a slew of local brass and funk bands and about 30 minutes of RCHP, which included a Meters sit-in. I was disappointed that the Meters played at the same time as most of the RHCP set, because there were about 500 people by the end of the Meters set...that's a damn shame for a group of musical legends playing in their home town!

Made the 11 hour drive last year, and it was beyond worth it. This year the line up looks even more solid, I'll definitely be making the drive again.

this is my first time commenting here, but reading this article remeinded of some badass years here. remember like '97-02? you'd see the meters in the day, panic in the evening, mule w/ logic at night and debate on galactic or the tiny universe for the sunrise show...three days days straight of funkin round nawlens and then try to make the flight out at 6:30am monday to make classes so you wouldn't miss a test. damn i've gotten old. ever think it could be like that jamband scene again during (pre)halloween weekend there? not that i could ever party like that again....

I went last year and had a great time. I see people shafting on the line-up from last year, but I don't know what why b/c it was great! Flaming Lips, BRZILIAN GIRLS, Chili Peppers, Mute Math, even Blue October was pretty good... I think they shut things down about 11:00 or midnight if I remember correctly. But New Orleans truely is the city that never sleeps, so they'll be plenty of partyin' going on afterwards. Hellz yeah.

wow N'Oleans, or Vegas? hummmmmmmmm...kinda perplexing, I wonder if/when the Pumpkins will be coming to Chicago? They're playing everywhere else this summer/fall bastards! Must wait til the Goose announces full lineup.

I'd stack this up vs. Austin this year - N.O. gets the nod on both music and PARTY, an up and coming fest for sure. Maybe another late show or two this weekend yet to come.

Wait.. wait. This doesn't make sense their playing at Vegoose and Voodoo on the same weekend. something is not right. What day does rage play voodoo in New Orleans. Friday im guessing, Im about to get my ticket for Voodoo but now I dont evn know if rage is really gonn be there. And the smashing pumpkins didn post their dates at voodoo on myspace. I intially thought rage would play all three days of voodoo? Im not sure how this festival works though do some bands paly everyday? and which days will rage be

i am really looking forward to this....rage, pumpkins-esque, kings of leon, gravity a, p-b-s, dumpstaphunk, toubab krewe, and the black crowes, all good stuff

galctic is garbage and should never be allowed to play, but they are now a new orleans staple, so i have to get used to their presence, even if stanton moore is lame and the others do not help to make the music any good.

it will be a great time. this will be my first voodoo in the new location, i am used to it at marconi meadows. i am looking forward to the new spot.

I was right there with you until you through Stanton and Galactic under the bus. You might not dig em', but most musicians in New Orleans think of them as anything but garbage. They are some of the most respected dudes in the New Orleans music scene.

gurgi617> You sir are an idiot. I think if you have been living in New Orleans for a while you should know that Galactic is there to stay. They have been lighting N.O. up for 11 years now. Just don't go to the shows. I can't believe that you said they shouldn't be allowed to play. Stanton is the man.

I found a link for winning tickets to the voodoo music experience. they're picking 5 winners for 1 pair of tickets each. The drawing is Oct.15th. Its worth a shot.
