The exciting Sea.Hear.Now festival is returning to Asbury Park on Saturday and Sunday.
Sea.Hear.Now is a must-see event for people of the Northeast. It includes a surfing contest, art gallery, and some of the biggest names in music.
Acts like Stevie Nicks, Green Day, Skip Marley, Boy George will take the stages set up along the beach.
Other musicians set to play are local acts hoping to make it big.
Asbury Park local Doug Zambon is the guitarist and singer for the band The Vansaders. He is preparing to perform in front of the largest crowd of his young musical career.
“It's huge. You don't get this kind of opportunity very often. We certainly don’t. It's awesome to play such a big crowd,” he said.
Local band Lost in Society are excited to play at the same show as Green Day, their musical heroes.
“We started the band because of Green Day and having a festival like this in our hometown is the icing on the cake,” said guitarist and singer Zach Moyle.
Even Amy Quinn, Deputy Mayor of Asbury Park, looks forward to the show.
“We love the up-and-coming local talent. Who doesn't have a crush on Stevie Nicks? I know I do. Asbury showcases music and art, diversity and that's what you're going to see this weekend,” she said.
Jeff Kormam, manager of the Iron Whale bar, is also excited for the opportunities the festival provides.
“It brings in a great crowd for us. People who haven't been exposed to Asbury Park before. Just different clientele potential… It's fantastic all around,” he said.
