Snoop Dogg will headline the Freedom & Fireworks Festival in Jersey City, July 4.

Snoop Dogg, who is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his hit debut album Doggystyle this year, will perform at Exchange Place Plaza in Jersey City, July 4, at a free festival being presented in conjunction with the city’s annual fireworks display.

The fifth annual Freedom & Fireworks Festival will run from noon to 10 p.m., and also feature carnival rides, a food tent and more than 30 food trucks, three beer gardens, a “Kids Zone” and more.

The web site promises a “full day” of music but only Snoop Dogg is confirmed so far.

In a mass email, mayor Steven Fulop said the city is “seriously raising the bar” for the annual event, with the Snoop Dogg booking. “Each year we strive to throw a bigger, better Independence Day celebration, with higher profile performers, larger carnival rides, more food trucks, expanded beer gardens, and cooler day-long entertainment for the whole family,” he wrote.

Kool & the Gang was booked to headline the event last year.
