Concerts are going strong for the rest of the year in New Jersey. Every artist who has announced a tour for 2020 and 2021 has postponed it to this year, so there are so many options to enjoy live music.

If you’re looking for more of an all-day activity, there are a few upcoming music festivals for all different genres, so there’s something for everyone.

I grew up going to music festivals every summer from my teens into my 20s. The Vans Warped Tour was something my friends and I looked forward to all year. From 2002 until the very last in 2019, I did not miss a summer.

I even met my husband at the Warped Tour in the summer of 2007 when his band Crash Romeo played on the tour.

Music festivals aren’t just about the music, they’re about the experience. It’s entertaining and an escape from the daily hustle and bustle. You meet new friends, enjoy food and drink, and watch multiple artists perform throughout the day or even the weekend.

We may be halfway through 2022, but summer has only just begun and music festival season has finally arrived.

Here’s what’s happening in New Jersey for the rest of the year:

Michael Arnone’s Crawfish Party

June 3-5

Sussex County Fairgrounds, Augusta, NJ

Live the southern lifestyle right here in New Jersey. The Crawfish Fest is exactly what it sounds like and if you don’t know what it is, it’s a crawfish boil that’s very popular in southern states like Louisiana.

Enjoy good southern cuisine and two music stages all weekend long.

Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival

June 4-5

Bader Field, Atlantic City, New Jersey

Two full days of pure beer, food and music. This festival features hundreds of beer, food and merchandise vendors, and best of all, legendary pop-punk bands New Found Glory and my all-time favorite Alkaline Trio performing live.

All participants must be 21 years old.

Barefoot Country 2022

September 17-18

North Beach Asbury Park and Bradley Park

A fall music festival at the beach sounds amazing and add the fact that Stevie Nicks and Green Day are headlining, I’m sold. Other acts include Cage the Elephant, Gary Clark Jr., The Head and The Heart, Peach Pit, and more.
