This Columbus Day, Millville, New Jersey will once again play host to the outrageously awesome Pinelands Music Festival! Having been extremely well-received by fans last year, it has returned better than ever! This time around, it will feature 25 bands, including Hawthorne Heights, '68, and Prawn! General admission will be $48.
Take a gander at the lineup below!
The people who put this together are all about the community, as not only are they recruiting some stellar NJ food spots like Wahlburger and Chickie & Pete's, but also they are pulling from the local scene to bring up some top NJ natives to the spotlight. Remarks festival organizer Nick DeLouise about the lineup:
"One of the most exciting parts of Pinelands is the blend between nostalgia and present. The festival will feature some of our favorite early 2000's heavy hitters, mixed with the region's most up and coming artists. Reunions are a big part of this fest and to be able to host Don't Look Downs' first performance since their breakup 11 years ago. Growing up in NJ as a teenager and watching our hometown heroes Don't Look Down grow from playing VFW halls to later go on and tour the world alongside some of the biggest names in music was an amazing thing to witness. Beyond that we truly have an astounding lineup of the area's most promising musicians."
The festival debuted on August 15th, 2015 with bands like The Early November, X Ambassadors, Hellogoodbye, You Me And Everyone We Know, and many others showing up for a day of good-vibes music. The bands Cruisr and Your Persona appear to be the only bands returning, though the lineup is nonetheless just as solid, if not moreso than last year. Do you agree/disagree? Let us know in the comments below!
Let's be honest, we all know how terrible Christopher Columbus really was, so why not instead celebrate with all your friends in the name of great tunes? So be sure to follow the festival on its various social media outlets to stay informed, and get pumped. Until then, stay tuned!
