Skate And Surf Festival is powered by GameChanger World, an artist-powered mobile gaming platform company, led by John D’Esposito who also founded The Bamboozle, one of the East Coast’s oldest and largest music festivals. What originally began as a local gathering for skate-punks in 2002 held in Asbury Park, New Jersey, Skate And Surf Festival quickly became wildly popular and eventually evolved into The Bamboozle.

Oof, good thing the line-up is already awesome because these additions aren't doing it.

This festival has been nothing but a disappointment since John D first hinted about there being a bunch of reunions.

I totally read Of Mice and Men as Of Monsters and Men. I got overly excited and brought back down...

That Saturday lineup is brutal besides FOB. Looks like I'm getting really drunk and not going into the festival till they go on. Transit and Major League aren't enough to deal with those awful headliners.

@BehindtheCade Seen 735 bands live!
I heard The Number Twelve is reuniting for SnS. Not a huge get but that'll make 3 "reunions" after FoB and the Bandits.

you know a festival lineup is bad when Macklemore is one of the four acts I'd have any interest in watching.

Man Rx Bandits are one of my favorite bands ever, but I dont know if I can spend $60+ just for them. Wish there was some indie rock here.

No, it means that you don't like the lineup. That's all it means.

I ended up as food for wolves
Number Twelve is definitely NOT playing Skate and Surf. This is 100% confirmed.
