Today, Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff announces the 4th annual “Shadow Of The City” music festival which will be held on Saturday, August 25th in Asbury Park, NJ at Stone Pony Summer Stage. Bleachers will headline the festival, which will also include an exciting and diverse group of performers including Hayley Kiyoko, Julien Baker, Turnover, Beach Slang, Clams Casino, Forth Wanderers, and Ex Reyes. The festival will include a number of activities like The World Famous SOTC Charity Dunk Tank, food trucks, Inaugural Mario Kart Championship Tournament, Weird NJ, and more of the best New Jersey has to offer.
A limited number of “Shadow Of The City” VIP Tickets will guarantee early VIP-only entry and a special brunch at 11am inside the Stone Pony, which includes a meet & greet with Jack.
Jack says; “This is my favorite day of the year, the venue that I grew up dreaming about playing and the town that gave me my favorite music. Asbury park and New Jersey as a whole have a sound and feeling that is a part of everything I do. This is all about celebrating that feeling and bringing something to Jersey people I had to travel for growing up. Very proud to announce year four of Shadow Of The City at the Stone Pony Outdoor Stage.”
Jack Antonoff is a three-time Grammy®Award-winning singer, songwriter, musician, and producer, as well as the creative force behind Bleachers. After serving as lead guitarist in multi-platinum band fun., Antonoff launched his solo project Bleachers in 2014 with the critically acclaimed debut album Strange Desire. The album found him setting emotional meditations on anxiety, depression, and loss against a backdrop of earworm melodies and massive choruses on songs like the gold-certified “I Wanna Get Better” (which topped Billboard’s Alternative chart) and the #3 Alternative radio hit “Rollercoaster.” Antonoff toured the world for a year and a half in support of Strange Desire, building a cult fan base for his cathartic, suburban influenced anthems.
