Atlantic City’s Bamboozle festival was scheduled to make its first comeback since 2012 at Bader Field on May 5. With tickets first released in late January, the three-day festival was set to include popular artists everywhere from heavy rock to hyperpop. Headliners included Papa Roach, Motionless in White, Ski Mask the Slump God, and Steve Aoki.
On April 28, the festival’s cancellation was announced on their official website and all social media accounts. A large influx of negative comments showed fans’ disappointment, yet the website gave no distinct reason for the cancellation, only stating that ticket refunds can be requested at the point of purchase.
