Fifteen is both a magical and a social number, at least in some cultures. In my case, for being a Latin-American, fifteen meant a huge deal for all the women in my life. Fifteen is the year when, supposedly, maturity hits you – and hits you for good.
That decade and a half of existence means a bigger picture of the world, a better knowledge of the pros and cons of living, the end of your I’m young so forgive my bullshit pass. For a festival such as the Voodoo Experience? It means to be already experienced in the pros and cons of many editions and years of bringing joy and music to the city of New Orléans.
Celebrating its quince años this year, the Voodoo Experience is making an effort to make this edition and extra special one. With Pearl Jam, The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Calvin Harris, the always amazing Preservation Hall Jazz Band and young promises from rock, hip-hop, house, pop and name-it genres, this Voodoo Experience already has the potential to be one of the most memorable one’s ever. A new focus and display of what the festival embraces, music and art, is the biggest promise to be fulfilled this year: more sculpture displays, a new design and distribution of what Voodoo offers, more new and small bands waiting to be discovered.
As long as the uniqueness of New Orleans is spread around just like always: with all the joy, flavors, food and warmth from the people of Louisiana; there’s no other worry than to find the time and energy to take it all in in a short weekend and be entirely able to experience sounds, sights and tastes for later worshiping.
