Yea they do single day passes every year, you just have to wait closer to October. And it's cheaper to get 1 day tickets online then waiting to get them at the gate. I think it's about $10 cheaper.

Yeah, that's the same as Jazz Fest. So, shouldn't be too horribly expensive, then, great. :D




Edit--Fatboy Slim has joined the throng. :)

According to Facebook, the Strokes have been added to this, plus a bunch of other bands. And Lauryn Hill. But there also seems to be a certain amount of impatience with the way the line-up is being announced piecemeal like this. (Personally, I know all I want to know about who's playing. :D )

Has anybody else who's thinking of going to this thought about hotels? I know for Jazz Fest you need to book pretty far in advance to get the JF rate, and the Voodoo Fest now has the hotels up with booking links, the main one (and the cheapest) being $149 a night (but the regular rate was something like $400 when I checked on hotels.com :o ).

Any lucky person who gets to go to this, please see Peelander-Z for me. Never can more fun be had at a show.

Best thing about going to music school in New Orleans? Being the first group of people asked if you want to volunteer. I get in for freeeeeee.

Also, the lineup's getting better. It was pretty godawful for a while.

It was--but I don't really care, as I'd only really be there for the Racs anyway. :D

I can't wait, but I don't really see anyone else I want to see except The Raconteurs. Anyone plan on dressing up?!

Yay! Yes! Come! My plans are completely open. I'm getting in the night before. I don't need to be at the fest all day, but don't want to get there too late, as there's a VIP section (you have to get it for the whole weekend, which is $500 :wacko: ) so the rest of us will need to get a good spot.

No, the only other band I was interested in was Soundgarden, and they're headlining on the Friday. I'll dress up if you do! :D

Yea I wanted to see Band of Horses, but I think they are Friday also... And yes you should dress up! Me and my boyfriend are gonna dress up as Jack and Meg (which we've planned since like last year). lol This will be my simplest costume yet. Last year I was the Mad Hatter and it was awesome!

You should be pretty easy to spot in the crowd, then. :lol: I've been pondering my costume, and have reluctantly rejected going as Adam Ant . . .

Well, strictly speaking, Halloween itself is the Monday, so you could do Sunday in the Big Easy then back for Halloween on the Monday . . ?

It's coming up with the costume that's the problem. :P
