Adjacent Music Festival 2023

Adjacent Music Festival 2023

MAY 27-28, 2023


Adjacent to the Atlantic City boardwalk, this new punk festival joins a string of new music events on the beach with a stellar lineup of early 2000s fixtures and on-the-rise rockers.

The first ever Adjacent Music Festival is coming to Atlantic City, New Jersey for three stages of punk, punk-inspired sounds and ocean vibes. 

Last August, TidalWave Music Festival made a splash at the same location with country headliners Morgan Wallen and Luke Bryan, attracting about 25,000 people. However, Adjacent is expected to be more like 2019’s Warped Tour, which brought in 60,000 fans and pop punk mainstays like Good Charlotte and Blink-182. Set to headline the two-day Adjacent Music Festival are Paramore, who released their sixth album earlier this year, and Blink-182, who unexpectedly headlined Coachella Weekend Two in April. Joining them on the 40-act lineup are on-the-rise teen punks The Linda Lindas, indie pop powerhouse Japanese Breakfast and beach rock favorites Surf Curse. Though not much will be known about the overall energy of Adjacent Music Festival until it’s first run, it’s safe to say that you can expect lots of loud rock sounds.
