AP.net Interview: John D. (Skate & Surf Festival)

Posted by: Jake Denning (05/07/13)
We're very proud to be a sponsor on this year's Skate & Surf Festival, held at The Festival Grounds at Six Flags in New Jersey, May 18th and 19th. Featured headlining acts include: Fall Out Boy, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and A Day To Remember. You can read our interview with founder John D. here. If you don't already have tickets to this year's festival, you can pick one up over here.
"Yeah, who would’ve thought, right? I never thought we’d get to 7500, and now we’re probably going to exceed 10,000, who would’ve thought? When we booked this in October/November, there was people questioning Fall Out Boy – what would the return be like? So if you were to tell me back then that this week Fall Out Boy would have the number one album, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis would have two of the top ten songs on radio, I would’ve told you to get lost because it was impossible…well, not exactly impossible, because it’s happening."

I would bend over backwards just to have the opportunity to attend, sounds like such a blast. Very envious of those who are in the area or are able to fly out.

Wish I had the money to travel to go to this. Quite a roadtrip from Austin.

I had tickets and then my family scheduled a vacation... we fly back into New York at 7am on Sunday and I keep pondering whether or not the jet lag would ruin my ability to enjoy it, but I wanna go soooo bad.

I'm going because I couldn't get FOB tickets for anywhere else. I'm going to hate the rest of my time there. I'm glad it got moved to Six Flags because now I can think of it a day at Six Flags with an added FOB concert.

You can always see Into It.Over It., I Call Fives, and Andrew W.K. - most people who are fans of music in general will enjoys these acts. If you like metalcore, go see Of Mice & Men, their most recent set is pretty cool.

I've actually never listened to any Andrew WK so I might try to catch his set since I know the name

It's absolutely impossible to have a terrible time at an Andrew W.K. show.
