Lil Wayne is heading home. The rapper's fifth annual Lil WeezyAna Fest will touch down in his native New Orleans on September 7, and this year, the event is bigger than ever.
Presented by Live Nation Urban, the lineup for the one-day festival includes such hip-hop heavyweights as Travis Scott, Meek Mill, Megan Thee Stallion, Saweetie and Trey Songz across two stages, plus a headlining set by Weezy himself. All this will go down at a new location, the 90-acre UNO Lakefront Arena Festival Grounds, which the fest hopes will double attendance numbers compared to last year.
“Lil Wayne is ubiquitous with New Orleans and Lil WeezyAna Fest is an incredible representation of the city’s vibrant and thriving music culture," says Brandon Pankey, Live Nation Urban's vice president of business development and operations. "In its fifth year, the festival has become a New Orleans tradition and Live Nation Urban is beyond ecstatic to bear witness to such an impactful event.”
