Voodoo Experience Adds Metallica


Metallica have just been confirmed as the Saturday (October 27) headliner for the 2012 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience. This marks the multi-platinum act’s first local performance since 2008 and their first New Orleans festival appearance.

Metallica will fill the slot previously held by Green Day. The band joins a line-up that includes previously announced headliners Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Jack White, along with Justice, Skrillex, Awolnation, Nas, Kaskade, The Avett Brothers, Die Antwoord, Silversun Pickups, Gary Clark Jr. and many more.

“We are excited to be part of our first ever Voodoo Music + Arts Experience,” said Metallica’s Lars Ulrich. “Our good friends and fellow Bay Area residents Green Day had to unfortunately cancel their plans to be there, so we are more than happy to fill in for them in our own unique way. We’re hoping we can fill those very large shoes and do them proud.”

Celebrated as the final musical event of the U.S. music festival season, this year’s Voodoo--Friday, October 26, Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28--will mark its 14th consecutive year. The Voodoo line-up annually features a variety of musical genres, which also reflects the cultural gumbo that defines this historic and beloved American city.
