Keeping with the tradition of getting fans involved, this year the festival launched the ultimate fan appreciation program, "BoozleTwist." Fans have been signing up in droves for the program which is powered by CrowdTwist on TheBamboozle.com. Launched earlier this month, the program allows fans to interact and earn points for promotional activities they do online via Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and on Bamboozle's website. In turn, they'll receive amazing Bamboozle rewards and unique VIP artist experiences. In addition, another contest was held, "I Booked Bamboozle" where fans were invited to suggest bands for the 2011 lineup.
Returning this year are several events attendees won't want to miss. The B-Boy Battle, a breakdancing battle, held on the stage of the same name where the grand prize is the largest cash prize to ever be awarded for a breakdancing competition in the United States and The Break Contest which, since 2005, has served as the official unsigned band competition of the festival. The winner will receive a performance slot on the main stage and other prizes. Originally held only at New Jersey venues, last year The Break Contest expanded to other states including New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Preliminary rounds began last month and finals will be held in April.
The Bamboozle Festival has become a staple of the music festival circuit drawing over 80,000 fans. Since its inception in 2003, the festival has consistently featured the best music talent from established to new artists spanning multiple music genres.
I go every year and you should too!
