The music festival experience can be quite overwhelming with copious drinks, flickering lights and nose curdling levels of patchouli in the air.  Add Caribbean voodoo, the masked hooligans of Halloween and the general craziness of New Orleans, and you’ll wish you had a guide back to your friends at the Silversun Pickups stage when you wandered off following the sleeveless pink hoodie guy. 

Zehnder has created a Layar for the 2009 Voodoo Experience on Halloween weekend to help make sure you can find your way, but only if you have an Android.  The app gives locations, schedules and information about all the bands, food and beverage spots and all the other necessities of the music festival experience. 

My only wish-list item for this app would be a way to geo-tag your approval of the band’s playing.  That way if you’re stuck at a band coasting through a bad set, you can surf the geo-tags and find one rocking out.
