According to, Voodoo Experience festival founder Steve Rehage has announced that he has booked many performers for this year's event — which will take place the weekend of Oct. 30-Nov. 1 in New Orleans, Louisiana — including the rock band KISS.

Voodoo is an economic driver for New Orleans and is the flagship event for the city between Labor Day and Thanksgiving.

WDSU first broke the story last week that City Park was booked for Voodoo's desired weekend. Organizers had moved the event — traditionally held in late October — to the last weekend of the month to coincide with Halloween, but prior bookings at the park made that impossible, park general manager Bob Becker said.

Festival founder Steve Rehage said he had agreed on the new dates with City Park officials, but Becker said several weddings were already booked that weekend.
