Looking for something fun to do on the east coast that will kick off your summer? Jack Antonoff of Bleachers, Steel Train, and fun. is bringing forth the second annual Shadow of The City festival right in Seaside Heights, New Jersey on June 18th. It seems like New Jersey is always left out within the festival boom considering that New York is the neighboring state. Antonoff wanted to bring something back for New Jersey music fans can look forward to on an annual basis. Given its inaugural year in 2015 with acts like his own band Bleachers, Charli XCX, The Front Bottoms, and Misterwives just to name a few – the festival is off to a good start.
This year’s acts include The 1975, Carly Rae Jepsen, Borns, (our returning champions) Steel Train, frnkiero and the cellabration, and more. You have a diverse pot of musical acts right along the boardwalk. Mind Equals Blown has put together a little Spotify mixtape of all the acts of this year’s festival that you can listen to below.
Tickets are still available and you can get them over on the festival website.
