Good find. I think this def rules Soundgarden out unless they are playing Rock On The Range on the 19th, as they are playing in NJ on the 18th.
Smashing Pumpkins don't have any other dates up, so I don't think they can be ruled out yet. Colombus is 12 hrs from Hangout so they could easily make it. Don't know how I feel about the Pumpkins without Jimmy Chamberlin though!!
^^ wtf just happened??! This in no way can be good. Livenation owns Wanee and it is amazing so who knows.
"Sillerman. "Voodoo has been operated on as a sole practitioner on relatively small level, and we think it has upside not just in New Orleans but elsewhere. It's a fabulous name, amongst other things, so we think we'll be able to help Steve [Rehage], the owner and operator, take that to other markets."
Sillerman obviously never heard about Voodoo Memphis '05 lololol
I didn't have time to read the whole thing cause I am at work, but sounded fishy. More EDM at hangout?
Maybe so. Not real sure what it means aside from perhaps better pre-fest organization/advertisement from Voodoo Fest. And I never really cared about their failures in that regard since I always have a great time there. It was discussed in its thread, but there's no doubt that the Le Plur stage being the 2nd set of headliners is the way Voodoo's been leaning the last two years. And the plan as of a couple of months ago was to continue that trend.
That billboard article has been updated. Looks like SFX bought Huka but not Hangout Fest. It says hangout will continues be owned and operated by Shaul Zislin. I guess we shall see what becomes of this acquisition.
