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.
