Wild Splash schedule, set times, after parties: How to see Lil Wayne, Yo Gotti and more
Once again, Wild 94.1 Wild Splash is sold out. No surprise there, since the annual rap and hip hop festival always packs upwards of 20,000 fans into Clearwater's Coachman Park.
But that doesn't mean you can't still see Lil Wayne, Fabolous, Yo Gotti, Lil Dicky and more.
The station will be giving away tickets all week at various ticket drops; click here for a list. And there are also a handful of pre-parties and after-parties featuring performers from the show. Here's a rundown:
-- Club Skye (1509 E Eighth Ave., Ybor City) is, once again, the primary headquarters for all official pre- and post-festival action. On Friday, Wild Splash performers Dougie F. and JR Castro will appear at Wild's official pre-party, which starts at 9 p.m. Click here for details. And on Saturday after the show, Lil Dicky will appear at Club Skye. Click here.
-- Over at Whiskey North, 11921 N Dale Mabry Highway, Yo Gotti is advertised as appearing at a Wild Splash after-party late on Saturday. Tickets are $22.09 and up. Click here.
-- Fabolous is scheduled to host a "white party" at 10 p.m. at AJA, 290 S Meridian Ave., Tampa. Tickets are $16.82 and up. Click here.
-- This isn't a Wild Splash event, per se, but it's worth noting: This weekend is Tampa Pro, one of the biggest competitions at the Skatepark of Tampa, and Lil Wayne is a fixture in the audience. Odds are overwhelming that he'll pop into the Skatepark at least once over the weekend. Notably, Tampa Pro's Saturday night party will feature a performance by onetime Weezy collaborator Yelawolf, so it's entirely possible Wayne might show up to that (or Yelawolf might pop into Wild Splash, for that matter). Tickets to the Yelawolf concert, which starts at 6 p.m., are $16. Click here.
Finally, if you're just going to the show and want a guide to the action, here's the complete schedule and set times for Wild Splash 2016:

2:45: Dougie F
3:05: JR Castro
