Lil Wayne Announces 5th Annual Lil Weezyana Fest In New Orleans, Reveals Lineup

The 5th annual “Lil Weezyana Fest” has been announced and like the past 4 music festivals, it will be taking place in Lil Wayne‘s hometown New Orleans, Louisiana. However, the music venue has changed from Champions Square to the University Of New Orleans Lakefront Arena as Wayne wants to try and double the attendance numbers from last year.

This year’s concert, which is being presented by radio station Q93 and Live Nation Urban, will take place on September 7th and include live performances from Travis Scott, Meek Mill, Trey Songz, Kash Doll, Megan Thee Stallion, Saweetie, Melii, Leven Kali, Akbar V, and more. If it’s based on the previous shows, there will be plenty of special guests making an appearance too.

If you wish to attend the 2019 “Lil Weezyana Fest“, the VIP presale will begin tomorrow (May 29th) on Ticketmaster and general sale tickets will begin this Friday (May 31st) from 10AM. Weezy‘s annual homecoming festival will also give back to the local community as $0.50 of every ticket sold will be donated to support educational groups for the the youth in N.O. Last year, Tune celebrated the 10th anniversary of Tha Carter III, brought out Birdman to make a public apology, and spat a brand new freestyle!

Lil Wayne Makes NFL Playoffs Prediction + Live Nation Weezy Ear Buds

Lil Wayne Makes NFL Playoffs Prediction + Live Nation Weezy Ear Buds

Of course Lil Wayne has infinite love for his hometown of New Orleans. He’s shouted out his city in his songs, he performs there often and Weezy is generous in giving back to the community. But this weekend when the New Orleans Saints host the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game, The Cash Money/ Young Money Millionaire will not be pulling for Drew Brees, Reggie Bush (Wayne name-checks on the Birdman’s “Money to Blow”), and the rest of team Black and Gold. See, Wayne’s favorite player, Brett Favre, plays for the visitors.

“I’m rooting for Brett because I’m a diehard,” Weezy explained to us early Thursday (January 21). A signed Favre football is one of the prize possessions in Weezy’s extensive sports memorabilia collection. As for who the dynamic performer thinks will win the game, Wayne — who’s appeared on ESPN a few times to talk sports — gave his analysis from an unbiased standpoint. Minnesota has a superior ground game and defense in his opinion.

Shouts to MTV, and hit the jump to see some Live Nation Lil Wayne high performance in ear buds:
