Girl Talk First Le Plur Act Confirmed For The Voodoo Experience Presented By Stephen Rehage
Girl Talk and many more! October 28-30, New Orleans City Park
Critically acclaimed mash-up/remix artist Girl Talk is the first Le Plur act announced for the 2011 THE VOODOO EXPERIENCE PRESENTED BY STEPHEN REHAGE. Girl Talk joins previously announced headliner Soundgarden--in the band’s only 2011 festival appearance--for the annual Halloween weekend (Friday, October 28, Saturday, October 29 and Sunday, October 30) musical celebration in New Orleans’ City Park. These acts are among the first to be announced for the VOODOO EXPERIENCE 2011 line-up. Line-up additions will be announced daily via ongoing rolling announcements on the VOODOO website, free VOODOO apps, email blasts and social networks.
VOODOO’s annual musical celebration is on display through its three unique performance areas: Le Plur, VOODOO’s dance space--dormant since 2004--which celebrates an amazing list of electronic talent from around the world; Le Ritual where the two main stages worship the music of the world’s most renowned artists; and Le Flambeau’s two performance spots (Preservation Hall Tent and the WWOZ Stage) which honor the roots and history of New Orleans music and its inspiration on others.
Each of VOODOO’s individual performance areas is enhanced by the use of interactive art set amid City Park’s lush lagoons, bayous and one of the largest collections of mature oak trees in the world. In 2010, Le Plur--set adjacent to one of the park’s lagoons--was highlighted by appearances from deadmau5, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Die Antwoord, the Crystal Method, Kaskade and Swiss Chriss, among others. Girl Talk’s trademark high energy show, combined with Le Plur’s unique setting, promises to make this one of Girl Talk’s most memorable festival performances.
When asked how he feels performing in New Orleans over Halloween weekend may impact the show, Girl Talk responded that he will likely have a “haunted laptop.”
