New Jersey’s first month-long summer festival known as “North To Shore” was announced by Governor Phil Murphy and First Lady Tammy Murphy live from NJPAC’s Prudential Hall this week.
The festival produced by NJPAC is a first-of-its-kind celebration of music, technology, comedy, and film over three weekends scheduled for June 2023.
The inaugural festival will be hosted by three unique cities including Atlantic City (June 7–11), Asbury Park (June 14–18), and Newark (June 21–25). North To Shore will bring together more than 50 venues across the state with the plan to showcase all of the talent, diversity, and creativity New Jersey has to offer.
Global headliners making their way to the Garden State for North To Shore include Halsey, Santana, Bill Burr, Jay Wheeler, Stephen Colbert with Jim Gaffigan, Alanis Morissette with Aimee Mann, Gavin DeGraw, Colbie Caillat, and more.
The lineup will also highlight some of New Jersey’s best talent and local favorites including Brian Fallon, Jarod Clemons, and more.
“Today, we are thrilled to announce North to Shore — New Jersey’s first multi-city festival celebrating the very best of music, comedy, film, and technology,” said Governor Phil Murphy at the North To Shore press conference Monday morning.
“This superstar event, held over three weekends in June, will attract folks from all over, creating another great reason for tourists to visit the Garden State as well as opportunities for local businesses in three of our iconic cities to shine. These festivals will generate economic activity and have a significant impact on our region and we look forward to shining a light on the diversity, creativity, and energy that makes New Jersey unique this summer.”
“Beyond our global superstar headliners, North to Shore will also showcase the headliners of tomorrow. From producers to artists, filmmakers to comedians, this month-long celebration will also serve as an opportunity to elevate dozens of local performers and talent,” said First Lady Tammy Murphy. “We look forward to sharing New Jersey’s exceptional culture with the rest of the country and enjoying a festival that will undoubtedly be like no other.”
