Following allegations that numerous Burger Records label executives and artists committed sexual assault against fellow artists and their fans, the producer of Oakland’s Burger Boogaloo festival—which was not affiliated with the now-defunct label other than sharing its name—have renamed the festival as Mosswood Meltdown.
The festival, which was originally postponed twice in 2020 during the pandemic, has now been rescheduled for July 2 and 3, 2022 at Mosswood Park in Oakland. Bikini Kill is still scheduled to headline the festival. By the time the bands plays the festival, it will have been its first show in the Bay Area in 27 years.
According to Eventbrite, which is selling tickets to the event, the lineup also includes Plastic Bertrand, Shannon Shaw, Flipper, Pansy Division, Younger Lovers, Midnite Snaxxx, Rubinoos, Carbonas, The Fevers and host John Waters
