The Voodoo Fest that now offers the Arts Experience 3 Day Pass, was first held in October 1999 in City Park at Tad Gormley Stadium, where it was executed and planned by Rehage Entertainment CEO, Steve Rehage. This initial one day festival comprised of many national and local acts that together performed on three stages before a crowd of eight thousand people. That year’s lineup included the Refugee All-Stars and Wyclef Jean, Third Eye Blind, The Roots, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic, Ben Folds Five, Moby, Train, Dash Rip Rock and Dr. John.
The next year, it stretched to being a two-day event, drawing attention with the starry performance by Eminem, who had only become vastly famous just weeks before, bringing further attention to the festival from all over the globe. Other performers include the likes of Counting Crows, Live, 311, Cowboy Mouth, Blues Traveler, Cypress Hill, Stone Temple Pilots, The Black Eyed Peas and Ben Harper. By 2006, the show had been organized into three different areas namely Le Carnival, Le Flambeau, and Le Ritual, across six stages. Each of these areas was then designated to the celebration of the various distinct aspects of the festival’s personality as well as that of New Orleans. ‘Le Ritual’ features mainstream music that is widely familiar to all; ‘Le Flambeau’ features the kind of music that is in-keeping with the spirit of The Big Easy’s hometown style; while finally the festive ‘Le Carnival’ throws light on indie bands, circus and burlesque acts. The festival expended to its current three-day format offering the first Arts Experience 3 Day Pass in 2007, when it broke all of its earlier attendance records with the presence of more than a hundred thousand fans.  
In 2005, Voodoo Music Experience marked the first large entertainment event in the city after the disastrous occurrence of Hurricane Katrina. Upon the insistence of its producer, the festival was organized as a free tribute show for its first volunteers, military, respondents and residents returning six weeks following the storms. This festival was held at Riverview Park, which is part of the Audubon Park, featuring local bands like Rebirth Brass Band and Cowboy Mouth, and international star New York Dolls, The Secret Machines, Queens of Stone Age, and Nine Inch Nails. For that year, festival moved to Memphis since New Orleans was unable to support such a big concert. In 2006, when the city recovered by the following year, the event moved back to City Park with an attendance of more than a hundred thousand fans.
