Holy shit. Yeah, that basically summed up my reaction upon seeing The Bamboozle‘s 2011 lineup. Forever known as the pro-emo event of the year, 2011 will be headed by none other than recently freed rapper Lil Wayne and heavy metal stalwarts MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e. Talk about diversity! Of course, The Bamboozle won’t be totally avoiding its genre of choice — Taking Back Sunday — featuring its original lineup — is also playing, as is Dashboard Confessional, A Day to Remember, The Gaslight Anthem, and Circa Survive.
Other notables on the 2011 bill include rappers Wiz Khalifa, Chiddy Bang, and Waka Flocka Flame, R&B star Bruno Mars, and even indie favorites Das Racist. Long Island hardcore band The Movielife is reuniting. Oh, and the fucking Insane Clown Posse is playing too.
