During the recent Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans, artists stopped by the American Express® ZYNC ZONE, to chat with SPIN about their 2010 festival experiences and much more, among them Florence & The Machine -- watch our video interview, plus performance footage below!

Florence Welch, aka Florence & the Machine, has always wanted to visit New Orleans so she arrived for Voodoo with her band three days early.

"We wanted to come and get a sense of the place, I've always fantasized about coming to New Orleans," she said."We've been to jazz clubs and blues bars and soaking up the music."

Concerning her Voodoo Fest debut and her band's live show, Welch just wants the crowd to enjoy themselves. "You want people to dance and feel that they're involved," she said."It feels like a group thing, not just be up there like, 'Hey look at me!'"
