Hoboken’s Spring Arts & Music Festival, originally scheduled for May 1 but postponed because of rain, will now take place on June 12. Headliner Leon Russell is not available on that date, but has agreed to perform at Hoboken’s Fall Arts & Music Festival, on Sept. 25.

Longtime Hoboken favorites Skanatra — specializing in high-energy ska covers of Sinatra songs, and celebrating its 20th anniversary this year — has been added to the lineup, though. Other performers will include Smokey’s Round-Up, The Amazing Incredibles, Tony Corrao, Emily & the Ideals, Sylvana Joyce + The Moment, Skyfactor and Amanda Holley.

As usual, there will be three stages, including one devoted to children’s entertainment, plus arts and crafts displays, food vendors and more lining Hoboken’s main drag, Washington Street.

There is no admission charge.
