Lauryn Hill
has been added to the 2014 Voodoo Music Experience, with previously announced headliners Outkast, Foo Fighters and Skrillex.

The Grammy Award-winning artist, now known as Ms. Lauryn Hill, was a member of seminal hip-hop ensemble The Fugees and earned heaps of critical praise for her 1998 debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The album received a Grammy for Album of the Year and Hill was named Best New Artist. Not long after its release, however, Hill disappeared from the spotlight and has performed infrequently (including at the 2011 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival) though she hasn't released a follow up to her 1998 breakthrough — her 2013 single, "Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)," is one of only a handful of releases from the artist. She also served a brief prison sentence last year for tax evasion. This year, she performed at Bonnaroo (where she performed Miseducation tracks) and is on tour throughout the summer and into September.

The 16th annual music festival is Oct. 31-Nov. 2 at City Park. Tickets are on sale on its website.
