New Orleans' Voodoo Music + Arts Experience celebrated its 15th birthday at City Park's Festival Grounds this past weekend (November 1 through 3), and SPIN took part in the festivities. We played host along with BrooklynVegan and PureVolume inside the Toyota Soundwave tent, where we invited Cults, Rudimental, Those Darlins, and many more to give intimate performances, take part in live interviews, and pose for our ad hoc photo studio. Here's a behind-the-scenes look.
