Casting Spells at Voodoo Fest
Halloween is full of voodoo—especially in New Orleans. Voodoo Fest held in the Crescent City features multi-day musical performances from local and national bands during this Halloween weekend. This year Ozzy performs, kicking off his U.S. tour! Some of the bands feeling the curse of voodoo are Young Money rapper Drake, rockers Weezer and New Orleans's own Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Not only does the music make a great case to attend the Fest, but large interactive art installations can be found all throughout City Park. Titles like "Galactivation Station" by Photonic Bliss and "Hotshot the Robot" by Munz/D6/ Intruder Alert! only make a person wish they were there even more. Well, if you can’t be, pretend you’re there by listening to WWOZ’s live stream which will be broadcasting from Voodoo Fest periodically over the weekend.
