Lil Wayne to Throw Lil Weezyana Festival
Lil Wayne will be returning to New Orleans later this summer for the inaugural Lil Weezyana Festival. Wayne's manager Cortez Bryant took to Instagram yesterday to share the news, posting the photo above and the caption, "We coming home to give the city the greatest concert ever!"
The Lil Weezyana Festival pops off Aug. 28 at 7 p.m. at Bold Sphere Music in Champions Square in NOLA. Rumor has it that the Hot Boys—Wayne, Juvenile, Turk and BG—will be making a reunion appearance at the fest, which is about all of the information available at the moment.

“I’ve connected with my fans in such a cool way with the help of Tidal, and with this Tidal X I can’t wait to bring them another experience,” stated Lil Wayne. “Lil Weezyana Fest is so special to me and I’m excited to share it with fans in New Orleans and online.”
Lil Wayne recently dropped his highly-anticipated Free Weezy Album via Tidal just in time for the 4th of July weekend. Wiz Khalifa, Jeezy, Cory Gunz, Euro and more are all featured on the 15-track album, with Infamous, Cool & Dre and a handful of other producers providing the beats. The Young Money CEO kept his promise to fans, dropping a free record for us to bump as we continue to wait for Tha Carter V, which is still wallowing in the label politics that have divided Wayne and Cash Money for eight months now. Wayne just celebrated 11 years since he dropped the first installment to Tha Carter series. In addition to dropping Free Weezy and announcing his first music festival, Lil Wayne recently teamed up with Charlie Puth for a new track called "Nothing But Trouble." The song will be featured on Big Beat’s soundtrack for 808, the documentary on the influences of the Roland RT-808 drum machine.
