Wild Splash 2014: Lineup, set times, artists not to miss and more
One of the biggest annual hip-hop happenings in Tampa Bay is back this weekend. 94.1 Wild Splash is bringing a strong lineup of hitmakers to Clearwater’s Coachman Park — so strong, in fact, that the show is already sold out. You can still win tickets at wild941.com, though.
Headliners Wiz Khalifa and B.o.B are both Wild Splash alums who opened for other artists in the past. B.o.B played the festival in 2010, opening for dancehall star Sean Paul; and Khalifa came to town with mentor Snoop Dogg in 2011.
Sage the Gemini (Gas Pedal, Red Nose) recorded a remix of his biggest single with Justin Bieber, which had more than 1.4 million plays on YouTube. Kid Ink's big hit Show Me features the popular if controversial Chris Brown. Also taking the Wild Splash stage for the first time are Rich Homie Quan (Some Type of Way) and Far East Movement (The Illest), two acts with massive singles that explode in party atmosphere.
"It's always hard (to book hot artists), but we're lucky that our relationships stand up strong," said Wild 94.1 program director Orlando Davis, host of Orlando and The Freakshow. "There are labels who call us and inquire about when Wild Splash is happening. We also hear from artists who want to make sure they aren't playing the market, around the show, so they aren't excluded."
