Lil Wayne‘s Lil WeezyAna Fest will return for its fifth year later this summer when the one-day music festival takes place at the UNO Lakefront Arena Festival Grounds in New Orleans, LA on Saturday, September 7th.
According to Tuesday’s announcement, Lil Wayne has recruited fellow hip-hop stars Travis Scott, Meek Mill, Megan Thee Stallion, Saweetie, and Trey Songz to all perform at this year’s event, which will be spread out across two stages.
“We’re so blessed to be celebrating our fifth year of Lil WeezyAna Fest and grateful to all of the fans who have been with us since the beginning,” Cortez Bryant, COO of Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment, mentioned in a statement to go with the announcement. “It’s only right that we made it bigger and better this year to commemorate such a milestone in Wayne’s hometown.”
Speaking of Lil Wayne and festival, the rapper made headlines recently when he canceled his scheduled appearance at Miami’s Rolling Loud Festival due to what he felt was over-policing by the event security.
