WSP To Play Voodoo Experience


Widespread Panic
This year, New Orleans residents and music fans traveling from around the world will witness history in the making as acclaimed Athens, GA band Widespread Panic take the stage this Halloween weekend at the Voodoo Experience. Details about Panic's performance will be released in the coming months, while news about the full Voodoo Experience (October 30, 31 and November 1) line-up is scheduled for later this month.

"We have discussed the idea of bringing these two New Orleans Halloween traditions together for years, it only took us 11 years to get it done," says Voodoo Experience founder and producer Stephen Rehage. "Voodoo and Panic kind of grew up together in New Orleans, endured and returned from the storm, so it's special for us to be working together with them."

Widespread Panic's John Bell says, "The Voodoo Experience has been kicking ass for ten years and adding to the spell New Orleans has on the rest of the country and beyond. We're proud to be included in the tradition. Hope it's scary."

The 11th annual Voodoo Experience will once again celebrate music, as well as New Orleans' bohemian culture, arts and cuisine. More than 160 bands will perform in three distinct performance areas - Le Ritual, Le Flambeau and Le Carnival - and eight stages each highlight a unique side of the personality of New Orleans.

For a limited time, three-day weekend tickets are $123, ALL IN with no additional fees; LOA Lounge VIP pass are $396, ALL IN with no additional fees and are available via and the, where you can find further info about this event.
