The postponed Sea.Hear.Now festival has announced its revamped lineup.

The third Sea.Hear.Now festival, postponed from this month to Sept. 18-19, 2021, has announced its revamped lineup, with some notable additions (The Smashing Pumpkins, Patti Scialfa, Matt & Kim) though some notable subtractions as well (Cage the Elephant, The Beach Boys, The Growlers).

Most of the lineup, including co-headliners Pearl Jam and The Avett Brothers and other acts such as Billy Idol, Lord Huron, Patti Smith, Grouplove, Ani DiFranco and Remember Jones, remains intact.
