The Bamboozle is an annual three-day music festival held in New Jersey. Every year, new bands compete for spots during the two days. The event evolved out of the Skate and Surf Festival. In 2012, creator John D left Bamboozle due to creative differences with Livenation and he will be reviving Skate and Surf Festival in 2013. He later clarified in an interview that while he was disappointed in LiveNation's support of the festival, "It wasn’t LiveNation that did this – House Of Blues did. House Of Blues is 100% responsible for the damage of Bamboozle."[1] It has also been announced that there will not be a Bamboozle festival in 2013 and the future of the festival is unknown.

The Characters[edit]

The Bamboozle has many different characters within the festival planning. Some of these characters are real people with false identities, who work to plan and operate the festival, while others are completely fictional, and serve as a means to give the public clues as to who may be playing at The Bamboozle.

  • John D is the festival creator.
  • Scoop is the Bamboozle's festival reporter. Scoop shares the latest news about the festival in the Bamboozle chatroom. Scoop likes to leak information to the public about the Bamboozle, but he always talks in riddles and baby talk. He loves the children's show Bob the Builder, the character Mater from the Pixar film Cars, and the game hide-and-seek.
  • Elmo is an older character involved with the Hoodwink festival. He also works at the Stone Pony as the production manager.
  • xChristianx helps direct the kids on Myspace.[citation needed]

2012[edit]

The Bamboozle 2012 (10th Anniversary)[edit]

On November 7, 2011, John D, the founder, tweeted a picture from Asbury Park, New Jersey hinting that the festival would return there to help celebrate its 10-year anniversary.[21] It was later confirmed on their website and in various chats with John D.

The three-day music and pop culture event will be staged at North Beach Asbury Park, New Jersey, May 18, 19 and 20, 2012 with Incubus, Foo Fighters, Mac Miller, Skrillex, Bon Jovi, Brand New and My Chemical Romance as the headliners.[22][dated info] Orignially Blink-182 was to perform but was replaced by My Chemical Romance when Blink-182 had to cancel due to medical issues that Travis Barker had. Bamboozle refused to accept refunds for anyone who no longer wished to attend once the announcement had been made.

A behind the scenes series about the planning of the return of The Bamboozle to Asbury Park, New Jersey is being created, called "The Gursky Project", by John D. & Samuel Gursky. The first episode premiered on Sunday December 18, 2011 at 08:00pm EST and can be seen on the official Bamboozle Vimeo Page.[23]

In 2012, Bamboozle offered guests contact-less admission with wristbands using RFID technology, [24] making the event one of the few to use such technology in the US.

Departure of John D. and future of festival[edit]

In 2012, festival creator John D. announced that he was not longer a part of Bamboozle due to creative differences with LiveNation and House of Blues. He went on to say in an interview:

"There were obviously strong creative differences. For the anniversary we wanted to bring it back to Asbury Park and I paid for my own flight to Beverly Hills to convince Michael Lapino and Arthur Fogel to bring it back there. We had the site and we had everything in place, but the partners wanted to put someone down to watch us."

"We were in a situation where we wanted to be bigger and we went to LiveNation because we thought we’d be their Coachella, their brand. Our first real year we didn’t get the support that we hoped from them in terms of talent. And the second year really crushed us with this festival when All Points West popped up. We never got Jay-Z, yet this festival pops in and gets Jay-Z at last minute notice to replace the Beastie Boys. When you go to a company you go there for their strengths, and we didn’t get those. We had to fight our own fight to get talent from within and then we had to fight to protect the exclusivity because every LiveNation promoter was out for themselves and radius clauses were just trampled on."

"If last year’s festival was done the way the founders and creators wanted it to go, it would have yielded at least 1.5-2 million dollars without sponsorship. And instead, they still haven’t clarified how much they lost because they can’t and don’t want to. I built the car, I built that engine, and for ten years I drove that and won that race. So somebody is going to tell me to go in the backseat and drive my car? Good luck, but when you crash it, don’t call me. It wasn’t LiveNation that did this – House Of Blues did. House Of Blues is 100% responsible for the damage of Bamboozle."

"My budget wasn’t approved. It was rescinded under the pretense that we went and got Springsteen or Bon Jovi. As soon as the negotiating got personally serious with Bon Jovi, all that was pushed aside by one person at House Of Blues. Why would you take Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj off that line-up? The two of them would have matched the Foo Fighters’ draw. I had to fight to book the two of them and then call and say, “Hey, we can’t go through with this.”"

"The final straw was when we learned details we weren’t privy to. The headliner was given $250,000 to ship in his own stage from Chicago. Control of the festival was just given to the headliner."

"Finally I was standing up for what was right – “I may be an employee, but I’m still a partner and the creator of this festival.” This guy from House Of Blues told me on the phone to stick my thumb up my ass and sit in the sandbox at Asbury. So I told him, “I want you to take your job and stick it as far up your ass as you can put it and from here on out you will report to me as the owner, founder, and creator of Bamboozle. Fuck you.” And that was it. The saddest part was watching friends turn their back on you because at that point it was about a check."

"They basically changed the festival to a one night only, “join Bon Jovi on the beach” VIP experience. And then the VIP area was put in an area we were holding for parking because it was basically all dirt. And they insisted because they wanted to sell $1000 VIP’s. Three dollars of every ticket was used for hospitality and executive transport to and from the festival, and kids wondered why the ticket prices went up."[1]
