Article by Andrés Alvarado

 

September 29-30, 2018 will be a monumental time to visit historic and beautiful Asbury Park in New Jersey. Sure, the scenery is nice, but that’s not what we were referring to, we are talking about the inaugural run for the Sea.Hear.Now Music/Surf Festival. Yes, fine fans of tunes and waves, this is a dream come true!

Festival Headliner – Jack Johnson

For this initial journey, the organizers have leaned on music-industry titans Jack Johnson and Incubus to run headlining duties; which is incredibly fitting as both Johnson and Incubus lead-singer Brandon Boyd are avid surf aficionados.  Supporting these heavy hitters are a plethora of big names like Social Distortion, Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls, Kaleo, Blondie, Milky Chance, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, and Brandi Carlile, among others. Safe to say, on the melodic front, Sea.Hear.Now is swinging for the fences.

But, that’s not all, as previously stated, this festival will be showcasing some of the raddest and baddest wave-ninjas on the planet. Among the biggest names hitting the tides are Sam Hammer, Balaram Stack, Rob Kelly, and Quincy Davis. Looks like the name of the game is for fans to have plenty of amazing talent keeping them entertained and in awe.

As an added bonus, Sea.Hear.Now will be co-produced by famed photographer Danny Clinch alongside Live Nation‘s C3 Presents. More so, Clinch will not only play on the production side, but will also display a viewing of his most iconic snaps featuring artists taking the stage during this two day event at his Transparent Gallery space. Sounds like a good time, right? So, ladies and gents, get pumped, get to the festival site, purchase your tickets, and let the countdown begin.
