Skate And Surf Festival Announces Preliminary Line-Up

>> For those of us who attended, it's fairly safe to say that last year's Skate and Surf Festival was a bit of a mess for various reasons.  The line-up was great, but the circumstances of the event made attendees lose some sight of that.  In an attempt to make up for the past, and to put on a killer event, the people behind Skate and Surf are at it again.

>> The 2014 Skate and Surf Festival will take place on May 17th and 18th at the Middletown Sports Complex in Middletown, New Jersey. In the spirit of starting over, or getting a fresh start, this year's line up of the festival involves tons of reunions - including the long-awaited reunion of Midtown. In addition to the return of that Jersey-based band, fans will also be able to witness the return of Saosin featuring Anthony Green.  Other headliners announced include DMX and Circa Survive.  

>> The Skate and Surf Festival prides itself on promoting local acts as well as booking big, big names, and so far it looks like they've got that balance perfected for this year.  The reunion of Midtown is complimented by the addition of hometown heroes such as Hidden In Plain View, NGHBRS, Patent Pending, Bears & Motorcycles, and more.  This is just the first wave of band announcements, and so far things are looking up for this event.
