The initial 2012 Voodoo Music and Arts Experience presented by Stephen Rehage lineup was announced today and it includes Green Day, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Skrillex, Justice, Tomahawk, AWOLNATION, K’Naan, Say Anything, Bootsy Collins, Gary Clark Jr. and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
The 14th-annual festival will take place Friday, October 26 through Sunday, October 28. Three-day tickets are on sale for $175 for general admission or $500 for LOA Lounge VIP (with parking available for an additional $50).
Green Day’s Voodoo Experience show will be the band’s only performance in the United States in 2012. The trio last came to New Orleans for the Superdome’s post-Katrina reopening in 2006, and headlined Voodoo in 2004. Neil Young last played New Orleans at Jazz Fest in 2009, and Skrillex headlined the inaugural Buku Music & Art Project in March.
For the first time, Voodoo will offer overnight camping options to concert-goers. In addition to a basic bring-your-own-tent campsite, VIP offerings are available with luxury tents and bedding included with electrical outlets, plus breakfast, Artist Passes, and much more. Both options also require full weekend tickets. Camping packages range from $150-$215 for 2-3 people, or $1500 for VIP camping for two.
