Music fans longing for a festival that includes performances by Mötley Crüe, Bruno Mars and Insane Clown Posse have finally found their oasis: New Jersey. Those acts, in addition to a headlining set by none other than Lil Wayne, have been confirmed for the 2011 installment of Bamboozle, the annual spring music fest in East Rutherford.
Wayne and Mars join Wiz Khalifa, LMFAO, Waka Flocka Flame, Chiddy Bang and Insane Clown Posse as the biggest hip-hop and pop acts set to perform. Mötley Crüe, Taking Back Sunday, the Gaslight Anthem, Dashboard Confessional, A Day To Remember and Circa Survive are among the prominent rock acts in the lineup.
The Bamboozle performance marks the first announced 2011 festival appearance for Lil Wayne, who released his first post-prison single, “Six Foot Seven Foot,” earlier this week. Drake, the rapper’s protege, headlined last year’s Bamboozle fest while Wayne was serving an eight-month stint at Riker’s Island.
The Bamboozle will take place at the New Meadowlands Sports Complex from April 29 to May 1, 2011. Three-day passes are currently on sale for $109.
