This year hasn’t been kind to festivals in general, which is why the annual Sea.Hear.Now Festival was scrapped due to the ongoing concerns of the pandemic. However, it’s now slated to occur in 2021 from September 18-19 in Asbury Park. And best of all, the lineup is being finalized with Pearl Jam, The Smashing Pumpkins, and The Avett Brothers being the headliners.
(Asbury Park, NJ – September 17, 2020) Sea.Hear.Now Festival has added the final touches to the 2021 lineup, which now includes The Smashing Pumpkins as a headliner, along with newly confirmed artists including Patti Smith and Her Band, Patti Scialfa, Matt & Kim, Orville Peck, Tank and the Bangas, Moon Taxi, The Soul Rebels, and Ron Artis II and The Truth. Fans will enjoy more than 25 performances on three stages at North Beach Asbury Park and Bradley Park on September 18-19, 2021. Tickets of all types are available now at www.seahearnowfestival.com/tickets.
Sea.Hear.Now’s surf programming also returns with another world-class lineup of surfers including Cassidy McClain, Cory Lopez, Sam Hammer, Brett Barley, Balaram Stack and more, who will compete in the daily North Beach Expression Sessions. Each surfer will be grouped into a heat of five and have 30 minutes to catch as many waves as the ocean provides, with points awarded for style and creativity. Fans will also be able to watch board shapers craft surfboards made of wood with today’s cutting-edge technology.
Murals and a recycled surfboard arch on the center of the beach called “Stoke Henge” and Danny Clinch’s Transparent Gallery Pop Up will again be the heart of Sea.Hear.Now’s art installations.
2-Day General Admission, GA+, VIP, Platinum and Ultimate Experience tickets are on sale now. Children ages seven and under may attend for free with a ticketed adult. For the full list of amenities and to purchase tickets, visit www.seahearnowfestival.com/tickets.
Sea.Hear.Now remains committed to raising awareness about issues facing our environment, including the global plastic waste crisis and climate change. In 2019, the festival partnered with Surfrider Foundation to host our flagship greening program, Rock & Recycle, where over 580 fans participated in on-site recycling. Hydration Stations helped to save close to 52,000 bottles from the ocean and landfill and the festival ensured surplus food found a home post event, donating approximately 2,000 pounds to The Center in Asbury Park. Stay tuned for details on next year’s sustainability initiatives and ways you can get involved at the festival and after.
Sea.Hear.Now Festival is produced by Between The Sets LLC and C3 Presents, the team behind Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, Shaky Festivals and more.
