New Jersey’s Asbury Park will be rocking out to the sounds of Bamboozle this weekend. Skrillex, Foo Fighters and Bon Jovi are all set to appear, with My Chemical Romance, Brand New and Incubus warming the crowd up.
Among this year’s headliners, Foo Fighters comes on top in terms of audience numbers. They’ve picked up 3,193,498 listeners since 2005 and regularly feature in the global chart for the week’s most-played artists at Last.fm.
I've been cheating gravity and waiting on the fall
How did this come over me, I thought I was above it all
Our hope's gone up in smoke, swallow your crown
Skrillex might be a newcomer, but he too has had a huge imapct on those charts. His rather more modest 622,536 listeners actually becomes impressive when you realise he’s only been releasing music under that name since 2010.
Further down the bill the artists making the biggest splash include A$AP Rocky and Star Slinger. Both will be playing on tour together in Europe later this year, but meanwhile they’ve been leaping up Last.fm’s Hype Charts and breaking into playlists with tracks like Marnin’ (Star Slinger) and ‘Goldie’ (A$AP Rocky).
