    "Fifteen years ago we started an experiment dubbed 'worship the music,' a project designed to follow and celebrate the drumbeat first heard in Congo Square and the evolution into what many would consider today's modern music," says Stephen Rehage, the founder/producer of Voodoo. "Out of those efforts came the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, a musical experiment dedicated to people who love great music of all kinds. Voodoo's a place where you see Preservation Hall Jazz Band playing 'St James Infirmary,' while just across the field 73,000 people are singing along to Rage Against the Machine's 'Killing in the Name Of,' or the spontaneous pairing of something like the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing a 12-minute unrehearsed version of ‘Clap Your Hand Say Yeah' with the Original Meters. What started as an experiment is, now fifteen years later, something we are proud to share."

    The 15th anniversary Voodoo celebration will mark the debut of City Park's Festival Grounds, a new permanent home for Voodoo. Home to the Voodoo since its 1999 debut--with the exception of 2005 Voodoo which was displaced by the city's hurricane damage--New Orleans' 1,300 acre City Park is the region's principal recreation site that attracts over seven million visitors each year.

    Have you ever been to Voodoo? If so, tell us about it.
