Monday, Apr 27, 2009 1:00PM
Hip-Hop newcomers Asher Roth and Kid Cudi have been billed to perform at this week's upcoming Bamboozle Festival in New Jersey.
The rappers are set to perform alongside a variety of music acts.
The festival will be returning once again to Giants Stadium on May 2nd and May 3rd, with one of its strongest lineups to date. Fall Out Boy, No Doubt, Third Eye Blind, Asher Roth, New Found Glory, Boys Like Girls, Metro Station, We the Kings, Kid Cudi, All Time Low, Taking Back Sunday, Rise Against, The Used, Sum 41 and Demi Lovato are just a handful of the 100 plus bands performing at the weekend long event.

This year marks the festival's seventh annual run.
"The way we look at it, we're not a festival," festival director John D'Esposito explained. "We're a community." After all, that's pretty much what the festival has been about since it started in Asbury Park, N.J., in 2003: Building a scene. Just because that scene has grown so big it can draw more than 80,000 fans doesn't mean that anyone is going to stop building. (Newsday)

Tickets range from $60 - $300. $125- 3 Day Pass, $110- 2 Day Pass & $60- Single Day VIP Packages Also Available. 3 & 2 Day passes available online only at www.thebamboozle.com and www.livenation.com.

Aside from this weekend's event, Roth and Cudi will also perform at The Roots' Picnic festival this summer.
TV On The Radio, Public Enemy, the Black Keys and Santigold are among the acts handpicked by The Roots to play the band's second annual hometown "Roots Picnic" on June 6 at Festival Pier in Philadelphia. Public Enemy will perform the classic album "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" in its entirety backed by The Roots and Brooklyn-based Afrobeat band Antibalas. The Roots will also play two sets, opening and closing the festivities. The Roots Picnic runs from 2:00 pm to 11:00 pm. (Billboard)
