According to an April 18 tweet from Skate and Surf, the 2014 edition of the Skate and Surf Festival is set to hit Asbury Park next month, with a stacked lineup that includes Midtown, New Found Glory, Alkaline Trio, Saosin, Circa Survive and several local New Jersey-based acts. Additionally, Cursed Sails, For All I am, Huey Mack and Separations were recently added.
Skate and Surf 2014, which was originally slated for the Middletown Sports Complex, will take place on the Asbury Park Beachfront in Asbury Park, on May 17 and 18. The move marks the first time in a decade that Skate and Surf will be going down in Asbury Park. This year, Skate and Surf 2014 will definitely have a hometown New Jersey feel to it, due to its intimate setting and lineup of local talent.
Sure the festival features Florida standouts such as New Found Glory and Jake Miller, but its the local acts that many fans are looking forward to at this year's Skate and Surf. Besides Midtown's highly-anticipated reunion, Skate and Surf 2014 features two other reunited locals. Hidden in Plain View and the Early November, both New Jersey acts, will be performing for the first time in years.
Also on the bill for the first day of Skate and Surf is Kid Ink, a California-based rapper. Day one of Skate and Surf 2014 is rounded out by an eclectic lineup that includes Basic Vacation, I See Stars, My Ticket Home and Brick and Mortar. The second day of the festival includes Long Island's Patent Pending, plus sets from Circa Survive, Midtown, Alkaline Trio and many more.
Here's a look at the full two-day lineup for Skate and Surf Festival 2014. Tickets are very reasonably priced this year, due to the scaled-down lineup that includes many local favorites. This year's festival should have more of an intimate feel than last year. Tickets are $55 per day, or $107.99 for a two-day pass. Tickets can be purchased directly from the event website.
