Bamboozle Music Fest
While the New Meadowlands parking lot may not be the most fashionable of venues in New Jersey, this East Rutherford location is home to the biggest music event on the East Coast, the annual Bamboozle music fest. This tribute to pop music marks the beginning of the summer music season for tens of thousands of concertgoers, and it promises to be longer, bolder and louder then ever this year.
LiveNation, the concert promotion company that dominates bookings nationwide, says that Bamboozle is their premiere music festival and one of the biggest events on their calender. Chart-topping rapper Lil Wayne will be one of eight high-profile acts at Bamboozle 2011, along with pop singer Bruno Mars. Heavy metal vets Motley Crue are scheduled to perform as well, in a slight departure from the pop music theme. Bamboozle is what is known as a "commuter" festival, meaning that there's no camping allowed in the parking lot.
