It’s a heart-wrenching moment for music lovers as the much-awaited Bamboozle Festival has been cancelled just one week before its start date. After a long hiatus of eleven years, the festival was all set to make a comeback, but fate had other plans. The festival’s host city, Atlantic City, refused the final permits, leaving the organizers with no option but to call off the event. The festival organizers shared the sad news on social media, thanking everyone who supported their cause. They also asked people to request refunds for their tickets.
To make matters worse, Bamboozle has wiped out all their social media posts, replacing them with the cancellation announcement, and has locked comments. It’s like the festival never existed, and its absence will leave a void in the hearts of music enthusiasts. Adding to the misery is the fact that Bamboozle has been mired in controversy in recent times. Fans have accused the festival of overselling tickets and founder John D’Esposito of cyberbullying those who complained.
The festival was to feature some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Limp Bizkit, Bad Omens, Finch, and Papa Roach. It was scheduled to take place between May 5 and 7 at Bader Field in Atlantic City, NJ. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. The silence surrounding the cancellation is deafening, and the disappointment palpable. It’s a sad day for music lovers who were eagerly waiting for the Bamboozle Festival to make a grand comeback.
