Stone Temple Pilots, Fatboy Slim, and Third Eye Blind have joined the lineup of the inaugural Beyond 2002 Super Festival. As previously reported, the April 12-14 event will present artists on five stages at Miami's Bicentennial Park.
The addition of STP and Third Eye Blind, as well as Less Than Jake and Dubcat (featuring members of the Long Beach Dub All-Stars/Sublime) raises the rock quotient of the festival, which already boasts hip-hop acts Outkast, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Method Man, Ice-T, Afrika Bambaataa, and Slick Rick; and electronic artists Rabbit in the Moon, Jackel and Hyde, and Monk. Also confirmed is comedian Carl Payne ("The Martin Lawrence Show"), who will host the April 12 festivities.
Beyond 2002 will also feature DJ, MC, and B-Boy battles, graffiti muralists, and extreme sports demonstrations with such notables as skateboarders Bucky Lasek and Andy MacDonald, BMX bikers Jay Miron and Thad Miller, motocross riders Kenny Bartram and Trevor Vines, and snowboarders Ricky Bowers and Matt O'Conner.
Organizers expect as many as 65,000 fans to attend each day of the festival. Three-day passes priced at $135 are on sale through Ticketmaster, as are individual day tickets for $65.
