Spin cover boys R.E.M., industry-defying shredders Nine Inch Nails, and recently reunited alt-rock mavens Stone Temple Pilots (watch live!) have been announced as the headliners for the tenth installment of the Voodoo Music Experience, slated to hit New Orleans’ City Park Oct. 24-26. Additional acts include the Neville Brothers, making their first-ever Voodoo appearance, as well as local acts like the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Irving Mayfield’s New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, and the New Orleans Bingo! Show.
A complete lineup will be announced as the festival date approaches, and if last year’s complete bill is any indication, the 2008 Voodoo Music Experience could pack quite a musical punch.
Fans can purchase special presale tickets May 2, when a limited number of three-day passes go on sale for $100 via thetenthritual.com.
