It’s going to be another busy summer concert season in New Jersey with all kinds of shows and festivals planned.
The band Phish will return to Atlantic City this summer for three nights of concerts on the beach.
According to Atlantic City Press, all three shows will take place August 5-7.
The popular jam band played three nights on the beach last summer, averaging over 30,000 attendees each night. They’ve played AC multiple times, skipping 2020 due to the pandemic. Their 34 day tour begins Memorial Day and runs until Labor Day.
They will also play two dates in Philadelphia: July 19 and 20 at the TD Pavilion at the Mann.
Phish won’t be the only musical attraction on AC Beach. The following weekend, the Tidal Wave Music Festival invades the sand. This festival, from August 12 to 14, is for country fans; the headliners are Dierks Bentley, Morgan Waller and Luke Bryan.
“The Tidal Wave Music Festival is an experience we’ve been hosting for a long time,” said Brian O’Connell, President of Country Touring at Live Nation. “We knew we wanted to bring our country music festival concept to the northeast coast, but the location had to be perfect. The perfect oceanfront location in Atlantic City. ‘a tailor-made festival experience.’
Speaking of country music on the beach, the Barefoot Country Music Festival will take place on the sand in Wildwood from June 16-19. The headliners of this show are Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean.
