With the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park closed for repairs, the main concert of the 2022 Light of Festival will take place at the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank, Light of Day board president Jean Mikle told Tom Cunningham on his “Springsteen on Sunday” show on the Shore radio station 107.1 The Boss, today.
The festival takes place from Jan. 7 to Jan. 17, and though the main concert traditionally takes place on a Saturday, this year it will be on Fri., Jan. 14, since the Basie has a concert by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra scheduled for Sat., Jan. 15. Tickets will probably go on sale Nov. 12 or Nov. 19, Mikle said.
As usual, though, most of the festival events will remain in Asbury Park. No 2022 Light of Day acts have been confirmed yet.
This is the 22nd edition of the annual festival, which raises money for research about Parkinson’s Disease and related disorders. The last installment was online-only because of the pandemic, but in 2022, “we’re hoping to be back with our full festival,” said Mikle.
