New Jersey is no stranger to exciting and dynamic music festivals and the debut of Adjacent over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend looks to add yet another noteworthy happening to the impressive list of must-see yearly events. The festival, which is being held Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th, highlights some of the most exciting touring acts with all-star headliners Paramore and Blink 182 along with Bleachers, Coheed and Cambria, Jimmy Eat World and Turnstile.
The Front Bottoms
One of the things we’re most excited about is the impressive roster of New Jersey acts on the bill. It’s thrilling to see The Front Bottoms so high on the festival line-up. We first saw them at a Moe’s Southwest Grill in Mahwah and their success is a testament to their power. The festival is also showcasing some up-and-coming Jersey talent with acts such as Asbury Park indie rock band Well Wisher, North Brunswick legends Thursday, hardcore band Gel and the red hot The Happy Fits. One of the most thrilling bands we’ve seen, Mannequin Pussy, is out of Philly but as two members are from Jersey we’re counting them!

Other exciting acts who can be found across the weekend include Japanese Breakfast, Jeff Rosenstock, punk favorites Pup and the rising pop punk talent Meet Me at The Altar. It’s safe to say with such an eclectic line-up, Adjacent is sure to have something for everyone. It is no doubt Atlantic City will be the place to be on Memorial Day weekend.
