Louisiana fall is upon us, which means the first taste of festival season is here in the South.

One highly anticipated festival is the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience (aka Voodoo Fest) to be held in New Orleans’ City Park from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2, the 16th since its inception in 1999. According to New Orleans native John Lands, there is much to love about Voodoo. “I love the music, food and artwork that is show-cased by local vendors and emerging artists.”

The three-day event will be held on City Park’s Festival Grounds, north of the New Orleans Museum of Art and south of I-610, rain or shine.

For psychology freshman Madison Barbor, she’s most excited about the Foo Fighters.

“I will be seeing the Foo Fighters for the first time,” Barbor said. “I must say I’m pretty stoked to finally see them perform in the flesh.”

As for psychology freshman Annie Brandt, all she had to say is that “Arctic Monkeys are life.”
