Officially announcing the sixth annual “WeezyAna” festival on Tuesday (July 12) — a one-day musical experience cleberating Wayne’s hometown of New Orleans — the event is also slated to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
Along with Lil Tunechi, this year’s festival will feature acts such as Moneybagg Yo, Coi Leray, Babyface Ray, Rob 49 and a few other “unannounced” special guests. It will be held on Saturday (Aug. 27) in Champions Square, New Orleans as Wayne is looking to bring the house down for his hometown return.
The festival initially began in 2015 and went on for four years until COVID-19 restrictions halted operations in 2020-2021. History shows that “WeezyAna” has proven to be a successful festival, scoring an estimated 15,000 attendees in 2019. The event is also notorious for bringing some of Wayne’s superstar friends out to perform, including Future, Travis Scott, DJ Khaled, and Nicki Minaj.
Wayne will hopefully perform a ton of new material at the festival, dropping Funeral and Trust Fund Babies since the last event in 2019. Off the back of a grand feature run that caught everyone’s attention in 2021, it’s also been reported that he and 2 Chainz have the second installment of ColleGrove in the works — and could potentially release around the time of the festival.
With two extra years to prepare, the return of “WeezyAna” is exciting and definitely should be on every festival-goer’s radar.
