The full Voodoo Music Experience lineup hasn’t been revealed yet, but there are a couple of big names already signed on for this year’s event. Green Day, who will be between the first and second albums they’re releasing this year, will venture to New Orleans just ahead of Halloween. Also confirmed are Neil Young, Skrillex, Bootsy Collins and a small handful of other acts.

This year’s event returns to City Park on Oct. 26-28. For Green Day, it will be their second appearance as part of the event, as they previous played 2004’s festival while on the ‘American Idiot’ trek. Last year’s festival featured the returns of Soundgarden, Blink-182 and the Raconteurs after extended hiatuses.

Green Day have a trio of records en route. ‘¡Uno!’ is due in September, ‘¡Dos!’ follows in November, and ‘¡Tré!’ will complete the trilogy in January. At present, the Voodoo Music Experience is Green Day’s only U.S. date for the remainder of the year, though we suspect that will change.
