Wild Splash lineup: Wiz Khalfia, B.o.B., Kid Ink, Rich Homie Quan, more
Tampa hip-hop fans were left scratching their heads last fall when Wild 94.1 didn't stage its massive annual concert known as Last Damn Show. What could this mean? Was Wild bowing out of the festival game?
Not at all, it turns out. Wild's signature event is still the Spring Break party known as Wild Splash, and on Monday, the station announced the Wild Splash 2014 lineup: Wiz Khalifa, B.o.B., Rich Homie Quan, Sage the Gemini, Kid Ink, Far East Movement and Ty Dolla $ign.
It's a lineup heavy on mainstream rap/pop crossovers (Wiz Khalifa, B.o.B., Far East Movement) and acclaimed up-and-comers (Sage the Gemini, Kid Ink) -- all in all, an impressive slate.
This year's Wild Splash will take place March 8 at Coachman Park in Clearwater. Early bird tickets are on sale now for $20; once those are gone the price goes up to $35. VIP tickets are $100.
