Over the past two years, the SEA.HEAR.NOW music festival has brought music lovers from all over to Asbury Park for a weekend of live music and art. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the upcoming festival has been postponed to 2021.

This year’s headliners were Pearl Jam and Avett Brothers. According to the press release sent out today, both bands have agreed to perform on the new dates.
