LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - New Orleans’ Voodoo Music Experience festival will marks its 10th anniversary in October by hosting three of the biggest bands of the 1990s: R.E.M., Nine Inch Nails and Stone Temple Pilots.

The three-day event kicks off on October 24 at New Orleans’ City Park; tickets start going on sale on Friday, priced at $100 for the three days.

Additional acts include hometown heroes the Neville Brothers, making their Voodoo debut, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Irving Mayfield’s New Orleans Jazz Orchestra and the New Orleans Bingo! Show.

Last year’s Voodoo Music Experience was headlined by Rage Against the Machine, the Smashing Pumpkins and Wilco.
