Along with reconnecting Fresh and the Hot Boys (minus B.G., who’s currently in jail), Weezy is planning on adding more special guests to a full lineup that will be announced at a later date.
Wayne’s hope is to extend the fest into an annual event and a portion of the show's proceeds will be donated back into the city, reports the Times-Picayune.
“I’m coming home to give my city a real show for all its support and I’m bringing some of my good friends in the industry.” Tunechi shared Tuesday during an interview on New Orleans radio station Q93.3. “Please come out an enjoy yourself, lose your mind. I will find it for you later and return it back.”
The Lil Weezyana Fest is billed for Aug. 28 at Champion Square's Bold Square Music. Pre-sale tickets go on sale today at 10 a.m. CDT. General passes will be available Saturday, July 11.
