Contrary to the what the recently posted MTV.com article reads, NO BANDS have been confirmed for Bamboozle 2006 at this time. In addition to this mistake, the single day ticket price in the article was wrong (in other words, take that article with a grain of salt). Also, to clear up some more confusion, the event will not be held inside of the Continental Airlines Arena, however, you can expect something cool inside of the New York Giants' practice bubble. Read below for even more details.
Below, John D. of Max Cruise sheds some light on the problems at last year's Bamboozle Festival.
