According to Billboard, the soundtrackers of my childhood and slingers of Dookie will headline this year’s ritual. The alt-rock giants are the first announced headliner for this Voodoo Experience -the band previously performed at the festival’s 2004 installment and follow up last year’s Soundgarden early announcement. The annual festival is expected to announce the rest of its lineup on Wednesday.
The Voodoo festival will span October 26-28, falling between Green Day’s respective September and November ¡Uno! and ¡Dos! album releases. The third in the planned trilogy, ¡Tré!, will land January 15, 2013. The festival date is currently Green Day’s only U.S. show of the year.
