Voodoo Releases 2012 Lineup: Jack White, Avetts, Bootsy and More Join The Ritual

BOOM GOES THE RITUAL. Check out our Voodoo 2012 playlist HERE.

Via the festival’s Twitter page, a big chunk of the final 2012 lineup has arrived, meaning fans of the yearly gathering won’t have to slog through an entire summer of one-at-a-time lineup drips that seemed to peeve a few folks last year (although we enjoyed having something new to write about every day during the dog days of NOLA summer). Alas, it’s all out there and we can start our yearly pick-a-part coverage of this beautifully macabre’d fall fiasco. and in the same weekend?! There’s your ticket puncher right there. Also there’s more surprising acts like Tomahawk and Dave Stewart, fitting in with Voodoo’s tradition of tossing a few wild cards into the mix that you won’t find anywhere near a gulf coast beach festival. The countdown to October 26th begins…

To see our extensive coverage of last year’s festival, go here. Finally, who do YOU want to see added to the lineup?

Over the past few years, he has also contributed steadily to JamBase and Relix Magazine. Recently, Hodges moved on to L.A. where Abita Beer is hard to find, costs about $6 if located and impromptu parading in the streets will most likely get you arrested on the spot.
