It was another successful Voodoo Fest at New Orleans' gorgeous City Park this year.

Headliners Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails and The Cure brought giant crowds while Paramore and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis checked another successful set off the list on what is likely both bands' busiest year ever. We also might have learned we have a crush on Kid Rock, which makes the whole trip entirely worth it.

Whether you were at Voodoo this year or in case you happened to miss it, check out our breakdown of the fest by the numbers.

Number of Preservation Hall Jazz Band members: 8. And they're all insanely talented.

Number of things you can wear to an Afrojack show: 42

Number of songs Pearl Jam covered: 3. "Chloe Dancer" and "Crown of Thorns" by Mother Love Bone and Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World."

Number of times we wished Hayley Williams was our best friend: 365 days a year

Number of times we thought Kim (of Matt & Kim) was going to fall down from standing on that drum set seat: 3

Number of old men with walkers we saw hair-banging to Kid Rock's "Cowboy": 1

Number of neck tattoos on the members of the Gaslight Anthem: 2
