The Bamboozle

The Bamboozle is back…well, it will be.

The beloved New Jersey rock festival, which has been on hiatus since 2012, will return to celebrate its 20th anniversary on May 5-7, 2023.

“We’re back,” says Bamboozle founder John D’Esposito. “The clowns are safe and home where they belong. 2023 can’t come soon enough. Let’s get it.”

The Bamboozle, which first started in 2003, showcased artists from a variety of rock genres, including such veteran acts as Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters and Patti Smith.

We’ll have to wait a bit to see if any of these artists will be on hand for the next Bamboozle, since the lineup has yet to be announced. In the meantime, you can stay tuned to
