by JAY LUSTIG festival schedule '23

The Sea.Hear.Now festival has announced its 2023 schedule.

The 2023 edition of the Sea.Hear.Now festival — co-headlined by Foo Fighters and The Killers and taking place Sept. 16-17 in Asbury Park — has announced its schedule.

This will be Foo Fighters’ first New Jersey show with drummer Josh Freese, who is replacing the late Taylor Hawkins. Freese has previously played with Guns N’ Roses, A Perfect Circle, Sting, Nine Inch Nails, Weezer and many others.

This will be the fifth Sea.Hear.Now festival. Past co-headliners have included Incubus and Jack Johnson (2018); The Dave Matthews Band and The Lumineers (2019); Pearl Jam and Smashing Pumpkins (2021); and Stevie Nicks and Green Day (2022). Bruce Springsteen made an unbilled appearance in 2018, during Social Distortion’s set.

The festival’s three stages are located on the beach, and in nearby Bradley Park.
