The publication was founded in 1955 by Pete Hamill and Barney Rosset who wanted to create a voice for New York City's emerging counterculture. They hired Charles Shaar Murray as their first music editor, who had been fired from another newspaper for writing bad reviews.
The Voice published an article in 1971 by Wayne King titled "The Pulitzer Prize: A Case Study in Media Corruption" that investigated how previous winners of the prize had been chosen over other candidates. The piece showed how members of the board of judges for the prize had written or edited pieces that had been submitted by others for possible inclusion in the award. These members then voted on which ones they thought best represented their interests, thus corrupting the award process.
In addition to the Pulitzers, the Voice has received two other awards for its writing: the George Polk Award and the National Arts Club Medal for Journalism. The Voice currently has 70 writers who are full time employees. It also has several part-time contributors who are paid for specific articles.

The Village Voice was founded by Abe Peck in New York City. It originally published articles written by artists and musicians who were unable to find a home for their work in traditional journalism.
In its early years, the magazine focused on political cartoons and comics, with additional coverage of music and theater. It also published some articles by non-cartoonists, such as E. B. White's 1959 piece "Why I Write Cartoons."
In 1961, the Voice began publishing weekly in bedsheet format, distributed at coffee shops and restaurants across Manhattan. These sheets were called "Voice-lets" and each contained four pages: two cartoon pages by Robert Crumb and Spain Rodriguez, one musical page featuring album reviews by Greil Marcus, and one theatrical page reviewing plays and movies.
In September 1969, the Voice moved into its own building at 171 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. By this time, the magazine had become more mainstream, covering politics, crime, and sports as well as arts and entertainment. It also began including interviews with celebrities in its magazine.
