Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & More to Headline Bamboozle 2011
Promoters for the multi-day Bamboozle Festival in New Jersey have just announced one of the more eclectic, puzzling lineups to grace American stages in recent years. Recently-freed rapper Lil Wayne leads the way in his first announced festival appearance since leaving Rikers Island, but he’ll also join a bill with metal godfathers Motley Crue, Wiz Khalifa, Insane Clown Posse, Big K.R.I.T., Das Racist and many more acts from nearly every genre imaginable.
The festival’s official dates are April 29, 30 and May 1, and all shows take place at the New Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Bamboozle is particularly popular amongst teenagers in nearly every demographic and features over 100 bands to be announced leading up to show time.
Tickets are on sale for $109 and include a pass to all three days of music. There’s also a Wayne VIP package, which gets fans backstage access and tours, amusement ride privileges, a special designer t-shirt, food and refreshments, a gift bag, meet and greets, private restrooms and early entry to each day of festivities. These run for $300-350, so start saving up now if you want the full package.
With the release of the much-anticipated Wayne-comeback album ‘Carter IV’ set currently for February, the New Orleans MC should have a ton of new material to rock during his set, including his newest single ‘6 Foot 7 Foot.’
