David Guetta to Headline Ultra Fest, Skrillex Added to Bamboozle Lineup
Festival season seems to be shaping up for 2012! Not only was the lineup for Ultra Fest announced, but Bamboozle festival turns 10 this year, and they’re celebrating with one of the most eclectic lineups you’ll be able to hear for the price of a ticket in 2012. So far, the lineup includes Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, Blink-182, and the recently added Skrillex.
The festival, which takes place May 18-20 in Asbury Park, N.J., will also host performances from Mac Miller and Incubus, among others.
Skrillex is keeping busy on the festival circuit this year — he’ll also be popping up at the Ultra Fest in Miami, Fla., which is slated to take place March 23-25. He joins an impressive slate of performers that already includes headliners David Guetta, Tiesto, Kraftwerk, and Justice.
If you plan on attending both festivals, you’d better start budgeting now. Purchasing a three-day pass for the Ultra Fest from the official site will run you $299.95, while the Bamboozle is charging $190 for their pass (plus $26 in fees). If you’re finding it difficult to choose between the two, just know that — for better or worse — your chances of hearing ‘You Give Love a Bad Name’ are much, much higher at Bamboozle.
In the meantime, Skrillex fans can enjoy his latest EP, ‘Bangarang,’ released Dece. 23, while Guetta is still promoting his most recent album, the top 5 U.S. hit ‘Nothing but the Beat.’
