Jack Antonoff of Bleachers and fun. is bringing his Shadow of the City Festival back to the Jersey Shore this summer, with performances by The 1975, Carly Rae Jepsen, BØRNS, and a special performance from Antonoff’s other band, Steel Train.

Antonoff, a New Jersey native, says of the event:
“I grew up hanging around on the seaside boardwalk and to put the festival there this year is completely far out. Also, proud to expand it beyond something that I headline every year. With that said, it’s always something I want to be involved in so getting Steel Train back together for one show felt perfect. The idea behind SOTC is to bring a music festival to the shadow of the city – a place filled with music fans who have to travel to the bigger city to see a lot of live music ’cause their town gets skipped over. Year two gives me such joy because it makes me feel like we are really going to keep doing this.

While last year the event was hosted in Asbury Park (check our our photos/review here), this year Shadow of the City will take over the boardwalk in Seaside Heights. Tickets are on sale now!
