With a stacked line-up of rock, hip-hop, EDM, and of course some good ole’ Louisiana jams, the 16th annual Voodoo Music + Arts Experience hit New Orleans with a bang this past weekend. Friday brought Outkast and Halloween costumes galore. Saturday was Skrillex and 30 Seconds to Mars and to close things out on Sunday, a hit-filled two and a half hour set from the Foo Fighters.

My personal highlights: gypsy punks Gogol Bordello, Dirty Bourbon River Show’s flaming tuba and 30 Seconds to Mars in what they said will be their “last show in the United States for a very, very long time.”
