The Great Googa Mooga: Back Like Cooked Crack

googs

Today, the Great Googa Mooga announced that it will be returning to Prospect Park on May 17-19 with a star-studded lineup ready to cook, rock, and pour drinks down your face. For those who don’t remember, Googa Mooga is the massive food-music-booze fest launched last year by Superfly, the production company behind Bonnaroo and Outside Lands. To say the first edition had some hiccups would be an understatement—food shortages, interminable lines, spotty cellphone service, and other logistical problems on day one produced a huge outpouring of criticism, particularly from local media outlets who thought the organizers had bitten off more than they could chew. However, accounts from the more sparsely attended day two were more positive, and hey—you’ve got to respect the cojones for giving it another shot rather than slinking off into obscurity.

So, assuming the experience will be smoother this year, the real question is simple: who’s going to be there? Check out the full lineup of bands, restaurants, and booze purveyors below, then hit up the official site for more info; tickets will go on sale March 28 at noon.
