Voodoo Fest: the best time to visit New Orleans.

Well, I wish I was in New Orleans / I can see it in my dreams…

We hear you, Tom. New Orleans is special on any old day, what with all that jazz history humming through the air, mingling with the warm scent of spicy Creole cooking.

But you know what’s even more awesome than New Orleans? New Orleans at Halloween! You’ll practically feel the ghost of Louis Armstrong marching beside you through the gates to Voodoo Fest.

So what is Voodoo Fest exactly?

Where do we start? There’s killer line-up of music acts. With Foo Fighters, Kendrick Lemar, The Killers and LCD Soundsystem, 2018 will surely blow your mind.

And then there’s the food. Big juicy po’boys you can barely fit in your mouth, spicy Jambalaya, melt-in-your-mouth barbecues, you name it. Southern comfort takes on new meaning when you get these dishes in your belly.

There’s activities, large-scale art installations, and of course CRAZY COSTUMES, because who wouldn't want to get into the Halloween spirit and dance the nights away with a bunch of voodoo gods and sugar-skull babes?

Magic people, Voodoo people! See you there!

In Short:

  • Visit New Orleans, birthplace of jazz and cross-cultural icon - during the goosebumpy atmosphere of Halloween!
  • Killer line up of more than 65 bands over three days 
  • Incredible local and international cuisine including iconic treats like shrimp po'boys and jambalaya
  • Activities, art installations, and thousands of revellers dressed in Halloween costume for a festival you won't forget
