Foo Fighters, Slayer + Rise Against Lead 2014 Voodoo Experience Lineup
New Orleans' Voodoo Experience traditionally brings an eclectic lineup to town for the annual Halloween music ritual. And this year is no different, as Foo Fighters, Slayer and Rise Against are leading the rock contingent at the festival, which also includes Outkast, EDM star Skrillex and alt-rock favorites Arctic Monkeys.
The timing is great for Foo Fighters, who are reportedly eyeing a November release for their next album. Slayer, meanwhile, have also been working on new music, and Rise Against are releasing their new album, 'The Black Market,' in July.
The event, which runs Oct. 31 through Nov. 2, also features such name acts as Thirty Seconds to Mars, AWOLNATION, Fuel, Melvins, Fishbone, Zedd, Pretty Lights, Gogol Bordello, Manchester Orchestra, City and Colour, Death From Above 1979 and Twenty One Pilots playing alongside such New Orleans favorites as Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Big Freedia and the Rebirth Brass Band.
