The Bamboozle Fest Announces Return. First "Phase" of Bands Announced!!

Arguably as legendary as Riot Fest or The Vans Warped Tour, The Bamboozle Festival was a three-day music festival that was held in New Jersey from 2003 to 2012 typically held in the early summer months to really kick-off summer and the music festival season.

What sets The Bamboozle apart from other festivals? Well, its chaotic nature in that music from all walks of life are invited and booked to play the show. In the past the likes of Fall Out Boy and 50 Cent both played on the same day in 2008 as well as Bon Jovi, Skrillix, Mac Miller, and The Foo Fighters in 2012 with an insane 2010 of Circa Survive covering Nirvana, the Maine covering Everclear, Say Anything covering The Misfits, and All the Day Holiday covering the Beach Boys.

This year is no different as The Bamboozle makes its triumphant return with its announcement of the first "phase" of bands/artists playing on its 20th Anniversary as a festival. Introducing the "Senior Class" of Limp Bizkit, Rick Ross, Steve Aoki and Yung Gravy, "Alumni" returns of Mayday Parade, Finch, Boys Like Girls, Say Anything and more, "Freshman" featuring Sueco, Diabo, Scowl, and The Wrecks and finally the "Class Clowns" and "Clubs" of featurettes with a Dance Competition, Game-Changing Wrestling, Piddles The Clown and more!

The 20th Anniversary Bamboozle is set for May 5th thru May 7th, 2023 in Bader Field, Atlantic City New Jersey. Tickets go on sale November 25th, 2023 with "Phase Two" bands being announced this "winter semester."

You can check out the line-up as of now as well as the cryptic venue announcement posted this summer.
