During its reign, the Skate And Surf Festival presented the best musical talent spanning multiple genres while keeping to its core mission of artist development featuring up-and-coming acts who then became break-out artists. Therefore, for its triumphant return, it’s only fitting 2004 festival alumni, Fall Out Boy headline. Fall Out Boy recently released a new single, "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)" from their forthcoming and fifth studio album,Save Rock and Roll. The album will be released globally on May 6th-7th and is their first studio album since 2008’s Folie A Deux.
Skate And Surf Festival will also host the “The Break Contest,” a staple of The Bamboozle. The official unsigned band competition commenced last month and is being held in several tri-state venues. For more information, please visit: www.TheBreakContest.com
Skate And Surf Festival is powered by GameChanger World, an artist-powered mobile gaming platform company, led by John D’Esposito who also founded The Bamboozle, one of the East Coast’s oldest and largest music festivals. What originally began as a local gathering for skate-punks in 2002 held in Asbury Park, New Jersey, Skate And Surf Festival quickly became wildly popular and eventually evolved into The Bamboozle.
