Kendrick Lamar Will Headline 2017 Voodoo Arts and Music Festival
The great Kendrick Lamar is all set to take the stage at the 2017 Voodoo Arts and Music Festival, which is all set to take place during Halloween Weekend 2017 from Oct. 27-29 in New Orleans. Actually, he's headlining the event alongside Foo Fighters, and The Killers. The festival made the announcement earlier today (June 6).
Other rappers taking the stage at the star-studded festival include Post Malone, Aminé, Kyle and Rich Chigga. Interestingly, Kehlani will also be performing at the fest, so there's a decent chance she performs "Heebiejeebies"—which is a new track she's dropped with Aminé—at some point during her set, or vice versa.
Plenty of stars will grace the stage at the 2017 Voodoo Arts and Music Festival, but make no mistake, none currently shine more brilliantly than K. Dot. Coming off the stunning success of his DAMN. album, the concert circuit feels like sort of a victory lap for the Compton-bred MC.
Kung Fun Kenny electrified the crowd when he performed at Coachella back in April, with a set that included a cool faux-movie clip, his new costume and awesome special effects. We bet he'll pull out some of the same tricks at this fest as well.
K. Dot's set at the 2017 Voodoo Arts and Music Festival will be preceded by his DAMN. tour, which is all set to take place between July 12 and Aug. 6.
Tickets for the festival go on sale this Friday (June 9) 11 a.m. EST. You can cop them here.
