The Bamboozle is an annual rain-or-shine, two-day music festival held in New Jersey. Every year, new bands compete for spots during the two days. The event evolved out of the Skate and Surf Festival.

The Characters

The Bamboozle has many different characters within the festival planning. Some of these characters are real people with false identities, who work to plan and operate the festival, while others are completely fictional, and serve as a means to give the public clues as to who may be playing at The Bamboozle.

  • John D, also known as Willy (Wonka), is the festival creator.
  • Linc likes to leak information to the public about The Bamboozle. The catch is he always talks in riddles and baby talk. He loves the children's show Bob the Builder, the character Mater from the Pixar film Cars, and the game hide-and-seek.
  • Scoop is The Bamboozle's festival reporter. Scoop shares the latest news about the festival in the Bamboozle chatroom.
  • Elmo is an older character involved with The Hoodwink festival. He also works at the Stone Pony putting shows together.
  • xChristianx helps direct the kids on Myspace.[citation needed]
