Later this year, Lil Wayne will celebrate the 10th anniversary of his chart-topping album Tha Carter IIIat the fourth annual Lil Weezyana Fest. The event is scheduled to take place on August 25 at Champions Square’s Bold Sphere Music in his hometown of New Orleans.
Although the full lineup has yet to be released, Wayne announced the festival’s return through his Instagram account, which included a Carter III-inspired flyer.
The inaugural Lil Weezyana Fest took place on August 25, 2015. With each passing year, it has only grown in popularity.
“Lil Weezyana Fest is renowned for its all-star special guests and surprise performances. Past guests have included: Drake, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz and New Orleans natives The Hot Boys and Big Freedia. 2018’s lineup of special guests should be equally as spectacular,” a press release for the event reads.
In the decade since Tha Carter III’s initial release, it remains Wayne’s most commercially successful album. The multi-platinum LP spawned two of the biggest songs of his career: “A Milli” and “Lollipop.” Guests on the critically-acclaimed project included JAY-Z, T-Pain, Babyface and Busta Rhymes.
