Sunday marks the end of another Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, and we're already starting to suffer from PTFD (Post Traumatic Festival Disorder). This year has elevated the festival to a new status, boasting some of its best headliners yet, like The Weeknd, G-Eazy, Cage the Elephant, Tool and tonight's Arcade Fire and The Chainsmokers. What other festival can you see such a gathering of megastars in a range of genres? But it's not over yet festival-goers, so show up early today and stay late to catch another day of music bliss.
Start out your morning at the Le Plur Stage, where Unicorn Fukr and Herb Christopher take you to church at noon or go drown in the beautiful gospel sounds of The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers on the Pepsi Stage at 12:45pm.
Speaking of catching acts that are good for the soul, preacher's son Sir the Baptist brings his social conscious hip hop and captivating stage performance to the Pepsi Stage at 2:30pm as well as the more intimate Toyota Music Den at 4pm.
While there are more than a dozen solid acts to catch earlier in the day, the most important decision may be how to end the day: the Altar or Le Plur Stage.
Indie rock fans will flock to the Altar Stage to catch the Grammy-winning and critically acclaimed Arcade Fire. It's a family affair with this Canadian band, fronted by husband and wife Win Butler and Regine Chassagne, in addition to Butler's younger brother William, and Richard Reed Parry, Jeremy Gara and Tim Kingsbury. Fans can keep their fingers crossed for perhaps some new material, with a new album slated for 2017. Their set begins tonight at 7:30pm.
Simultaneously, The Chainsmokers, who have become this year's runaway train for hits, will take the Le Plur Stage. The Chainsmokers are the brains behind ear worms like "Closer," "Roses," "Don't Let Me Down," and most recently, "All We Know." If their show comes anywhere near their performance at KAABOO in September, they throw the party of a lifetime.
It's a fitting way to close out the festival of the year.
