The festival takes place on the beach over Memorial Day Weekend next year

Adjacent Festival

An all-new music festival is coming to New Jersey next year. Adjacent will hit the beaches of Atlantic City over Memorial Day Weekend on May 27 and May 28 in 2023. Blink-182 and Paramore are set to headline the two-day jaunt. Other premiere acts slated to perform include Turnstile, Japanese Breakfast, Coheed and Cambria, Jimmy Eat World, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Motion City Soundtrack, The Starting Line, and more.

The festival will also feature a bevy of local talent. The lineup boasts Bleachers, led by six-time GRAMMY® Award winner and Bergenfield, NJ, native Jack Antonoff; Thursday and Midtown, both of New Brunswick, NJ; Folly, of Sussex, NJ; The Front Bottoms, of Woodcliff Lake, NJ; The Happy Fits, of Pittstown, NJ, and Belleville, NJ’s L.S. Dune, which features My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero.

Nearby New York is well-represented, with Jeff Rosenstock, Wheatus, and The Movie Life, who all hail from Long Island. Philadephia’s own Japanese Breakfast, The Starting Line and Mannequin Pussy are also on the bill. It will certainly be quite the homecoming for these artists and their fans.

Early Bird Passes for the first-ever Adjacent Festival go on sale this Thursday, October 27 at 10am ET via Two-day general admission passes and VIP Packages will go on sale this Friday, October 28 at 10am ET. Travel packages will also be available.

The Adjacent Music Festival on the Atlantic City Beach is presented by Live Nation in partnership with the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) and the City of Atlantic City. A portion of the proceeds benefits Atlantic City Boys & Girls Club.
