Contest: Win Tickets to Voodoo Fest

Every year we’re always amazed by how the Voodoo Fest manages to mix national megatalent with local musicians, it makes for a festival that is not only different than most, but also gives us the chance to be like, Yeah after I catch the Meat Puppets I’m going to go check out the New Orleans Bingo! Show. Diversity! The lineup this year is pretty out there, you can catch Eminem and D12, The Pogues, Kiss, and if it’s your thing, Widespread Panic plus the rest of the ridiculously packed lineup, which you can see here. Hit us in the comments for your chance to win tickets, and remember to use a legit email address.

    I am 48 years old and have never seen Kiss before!! I would love to pretend I’m 15 again and party at the Voodoo Fest!!! Please, pick me for the voodoo fest tickets!!!

  33. I have a story to tell.Igo to Voodoo every year being a native of da N.O. Usually I get in free through the booth workers(friends with alot of them).Well this year they are crackin down on that issue by not giving out the wristbands to the workers(so they wont be able to pass me one through the fence)!Now being the poor man that I am I will not be able to purchase the way overpriced tickets and therefor will not be attending Voodoo this year!!!!! Here is my pitch>I am going to try and sneak into Voodoo fest with some sneaky ninja moves,witch will probably end badly for me!Could get caught,go to jail,maybe slip on the fence and die a true Voodoo soldier! As cool as all that sounds,Iwould rather win some tickets from THE FADER and tell all my friends about THE FADER!So what do ya think guys,can you help out a true VOODOO veteran and possibly save a mans life????

  34. Deborah Bonnette says:

    Want a real pity party story? I am 60 (ex hippy) and have not been able to work for a year and a half. My 22yr. old kid had been picking up the bills and rent and everything working doubles at the restaurant like a fiend until he was hurt on the job and was out for a month while he healed. We got evicted and we are both sleeping on friends couches. He is down in the dumps because he feels it is somehow his fault that we have had such bad luck. This is a very cool, responsilble kid. He has always wanted to go to Voodo fest but we just couldn’t afford it what with having to buy this stuff called food and all. What a way to lift his day and spirits. Please hook this kid up!

    The kid’s Mom

  35. Carrie says:

    I want to camp have a good time listen to tunes see great bands meet other people and go to voodoo!!!

  36. melanie imbraguglio says:

  37. melanie imbraguglio says:

    Born to win and to worship the music!!!

  38. Amberr Polhemus says:

    I’ve been wanting to go to voodoo fest ever since I saw the lineup for 2009!
