The dominoes on the NOLA festival industry continue to fall. The 2020 Voodoo Music & Arts Experience has been officially canceled for 2020. The festival was previously scheduled for its traditional Halloween weekend in City Park. The 2020 lineup was not set to be unveiled until early June, but festival organizers have pulled the plug on any chance of the 2020 festival happening. You can read their full statement below.
After Mayor Cantrell’s Tuesday press conference stating festivals like Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, and Essence Festival should redirect their efforts to 2021, Voodoo has followed that order.
The festival officially announced this move this morning. This is the fourth major NOLA festival to cancel after BUKU, Jazz Fest, and Essence pulled the plug on its 2020 festivals last week.
