Paramore, Turnstile To Headline Adjacent Music Festival
Blink-182, Paramore, Turnstile, Bleachers and Japanese Breakfast will top the bill for the new Live Nation-produced two-day Adjacent Music Festival on the beach in Atlantic City. The Memorial Day 2023 event (May 27-28) will feature more than 40 artists on three stages, with Atlantic City’s historic boardwalk and the Atlantic Ocean serving as the fest’s backdrop.

Dunes (featuring My Chemical Romance’s Frank Iero), the Happy Fits, Jeff Rosenstock, Wheatus and The Movie Life.
Other bands confirmed include Coheed and Cambria, Jimmy Eat World, IDLES, Pup, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Beach Bunny, Motion City Soundtrack, The Linda Lindas, Drug Church, Electric Callboy, Hot Milk, I Am the Avalanche, Knocked Loose, Loveless, Meet Me @ the Altar and more.
Two-day VIP packages and two-day general admission passes will go on sale on Friday (Oct. 28) at 10 a.m. ET here. Organizers are offering a number of travel packages, including a “Super VIP” experience at the Caesars Hotel & Casino that includes one Super VIP GA ticket for two days — including an exclusive VIP viewing area and VIP boardwalk viewing deck and VIP standing-room pit access on the beach for the main stage; other travel packages are available for the Ocean Casino Resort, the Tropicana Hotel and Showboat Hotel.
Mark Hoppus spoke about the newly-announced blink-182 reunion–among other subjects – on a recent episode of his After School Radio show on Apple Music.
The long-awaited reunion was confirmed on October 12 and will see Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker get back together with original guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge, seven years after he last performed with the band.
“We did it!” Hoppus celebrated on his radio show. “Blink-182 is back together, people. It’s happening. Yes, it’s happening. Blink-182, world tour, new music, new album. Tom’s back. Man, I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. That was a burden to carry that secret for so long.”
