Spring is in the air and summer festival season is just around the corner. While many are making the trek to multi-day, destination festivals, there are plenty of cool local options to explore as well. One such option is the Shadow of the City Festival on June 18th in Seaside Heights, NJ.
Founded by Grammy award-winning musician, Jack Antonoff, the lineup for this year includes: The 1975, Børns, Carly Rae Jepsen, Hana, Shamir, Bishop Briggs, Frnkiero and the Cellabration, and last but certainly not least, Antonoff’s first band, Steel Train.
Now in its second year, Antonoff says the reason he started the festival in Seaside Heights was to “bring a music festival to the shadow of the city,” to music fans who have to travel to a bigger city when their town “gets skipped over.”
