IGGY POP, BUZZCOCKS, X, GUITAR WOLF, NRBQ, FLAMIN' GROOVIES' ROY LONEY and more are set to headline the BURGER BOOGALOO, JULY 1st and 2nd at MOSSWOOD PARK in OAKLAND, CA.
The event is celebrating the fifth year at its current location, with cult filmmaker JOHN WATERS ("Pink Flamingos," "Hairspray") returning as host for the third year.
Said WATERS about coming back: "I've been a punk at heart even before there was such a thing and hosting BURGER BOOGALOO always ups my street cred. I’m the oldest juvenile delinquent there."
Every year the BURGER BOOGALOO surprises the audience with its unique, over-the-top stage sets and productions. Last year, THE MUMMIES drove in to the park in their 1966 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE MUMMIES MOBILE, and played their headlining set on top of the car.
This year, the festival donated 100% of the first week of EARLY BIRD ticket sales to the park to help rebuild their recreation center, which burned down last year. If you'd like to contribute to MOSSWOOD PARK's REC CENTER fund, do so here.
Tickets go on sale at 10a (PT)/1p (ET), with two-day GENERAL ADMISSION passes for $129 and VIP two-day passes for $199 (includes a swag bag with mixtape, a college diploma, and more, as well as unlimited exit/reentry privileges!). Single-day tickets can be purchased for SATURDAY and SUNDAY at $99 and $69, respectively. Tickets can be purchased here.
