Founded by New Jersey native D'Esposito, The Bamboozle was created more out of necessity than anything else. "I started The Bamboozle because I went to other music festivals growing up and felt there was a need for a pop-culture-oriented event that was diverse but also catered to a specific scene," said D'Esposito.

Additional performers will be announced in the new year for The Bamboozle, with more information to come about The Bamboozle Roadshow 2012. The annual "The Break Contest," the official unsigned band competition of the festival returns and will be presented by Yuuzoo with the grand prize winner receiving a performance slot on the main stage and other prizes.
