The Light of Day festival normally takes place in Asbury Park and other cities in January. But because of the pandemic, it will take the form of an online festival this year, Feb. 12-14 (Valentine’s Day Weekend). It is being billed as a “Winter Love Fest.”
No artists have been announced yet. But according to a post on the Light of Day Foundation’s Facebook page, “more information (is) coming soon.” According to an Asbury Park Press article, the music will be a combination of new performances filmed at the closed Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park; new performances streamed by various artists; and old clips.
Since its formation in 2000, Light of Day has raised close to $6 million in the fight against Parkinson’s Disease and related ailments.
