With main stage artists Muse, Ozzy Osbourne, Weezer, My Morning Jacket and Drake already confirmed we are happy to announce these dynamic editions; The Whigs, White Rabbits, Dead Confederate, River City Extension, Miracle at St. Anna, O’ Brother, SPEAK and Michael Tolcher. Meanwhile, the beats will never stop in Le Plur either, especially with newly added Kelis, The Crystal Method, Kaskade and Swiss Chriss joining the previously announced Deadmau5, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Die Antwoord, Innerpartysystem and some of the best electronica artists in the world for 3 days of incredible dance music in an incredible environment.
Five years ago New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region were slammed by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, endangering one of the greatest cities in the world. Through the sheer spirit of the people of New Orleans and an inherent love of celebration, culture, music and food, people continue to band together to restore and rebuild their beloved city. Just six weeks after New Orleans was evacuated in 2005, the Voodoo Experience was the first major public celebration of everything the city stands for. Held on the banks of the Mississippi River behind Audubon Zoo, it was an emotional day for everyone who attended. Since then, we as a city have experienced great highs from the Saints winning the Super Bowl to terrible lows of deplorable irresponsibility and failure with the BP Horizon explosion.
Throughout it all the voices and instruments of New Orleans musicians have traveled the world as ambassadors representing the citizens that many have tried to forget. Today as we remember and honor, it gives us great pleasure to announce a special addition to the 2010 Voodoo line-up: Dr. John will join the Voices of the Wetlands All Stars. Stationed at his piano, Dr. John will accompany musicians and activists Tab Benoit, Cyril Neville, Waylon Thibodeaux, Big Chief Bourdreaux, John Vidacovich and Johnny Sansone. It will be an extraordinary performance, a beautiful celebration and reminder that we must come together through the music to protect our home, resources and each other.
ZOMG! For those of you who don't already know this, there's a music festival named after one of his albums. I'm prrrrrrretty sure you guys are all familiar with this fest. I will not miss this set, hell or high water.
OR, the Tom Tom Club is currently touring with a new album, and their last scheduled date 10/16 Brooklyn Bowl...
Mmmm, Tina Weymouth...

Ok, I've finally talked myself into going. Looks like I'll be heading out alone. PM me if your looking to split a hotel room and/or wanting to carpool. My route will be Chattanooga to New Orleans, on Interstate 59.
