This year's Voodoo Music + Arts Experience is fast-approaching, and we wouldn't blame you if you felt a tad overwhelmed by all the who-to-see options. The three-day festival is in it's 18th year now, boasting headliners like The Weeknd, Tool, Arcade Fire and Cage The Elephant. You could take a chill approach, wander stage to stage and just take it all in--but if you want a recommendation (or 12) we have some! The festival takes place October 28-30 at the City Park in New Orleans.
Click through the gallery above for our recos. Sorry not sorry we couldn't choose between Tool and Die Antwoord--you'll have to solve that scheduling qualm on your own.
