With the 12th annual VOODOO EXPERIENCE set to kick off tomorrow (Friday, October 30), festival producers REHAGE ENTERTAINMENT this week signed a deal with New Orleans’ City Park officials that will keep the annual event in City Park through 2019. The 1,300- acre New Orleans City Park–the region’s principal recreation site that attracts over 7 million visits each year–has been home to the VOODOO EXPERIENCE since its 1999 debut–with the exception of 2005 VOODOO which was displaced by the city’s hurricane damage.  Part of this long-term agreement between REHAGE and City Park will include the creation of a permanent home to VOODOO within City Park, which should be completed in time for the 2012 VOODOO.

“We’re very lucky to have such great partners in the entire City Park team,” says VOODOO EXPERIENCE founder and producer Stephen Rehage.  “I am greatly appreciative to Bob Becker (City Park), and Stephen Perry (of the New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau) who worked with us to get this deal done. We look forward to celebrating with them this weekend and to working together in creating a permanent home for VOODOO in the place where it all begin 12 years ago.”
“Voodoo keeps getting better each year,” says Bob Becker, CEO of City Park.  “How exciting to know that one of the preeminent and quintessentially New Orleans music events will continue to be held in City Park through 2019.”
