A petition has been started by a local to have Attila removed from Skate and Surf.
Last year, the legendary Skate and Surf Festival returned to Asbury Park after ten years away. While the man behind the scenes, John D, has the city's best interest at heart, he has made careless mistakes when booking certain performers. Last year, upon moving the festival to Asbury, the city required he remove the hip hop artist DMX from the bill, citing homophobia in his music. This year, a band called Attila is on his festival's lineup.

Skate and Surf Fest is looking to return to Asbury Park.
O'Brien will present a special event application to members of the City Council at the March 26 meeting. He has been working with Surf and Skate founder John D’Esposito to return the concert series to its Asbury roots, he said. "We hope to have everyone get behind it and be supportive in Asbury Park,” he said. “It started in Asbury and our goal is to bring it back home."

We're getting pretty stoked that this year's Skate and Surf Fest is this weekend. So to match that excitement, we put together a pretty rad playlist featuring some of our favorite songs from the band's playing at S+S, which you can stream in the replies. What band (or bands) are you looking forward to seeing the most?

Brooklyn Rocksteady: The Roots, The Scene & The Culture documentary will premiere on May 17th in Brooklyn, as well as the Skate and Surf Festival on May 18-19 in Freehold, NJ. Watch the trailer in the replies.
Directed by Samuel Gursky, it is a journey from 1981 - present, chronicling the people, sights and sounds of the New York ska scene in the 80s/90s, drawing parallels to the current scene and what is emerging as we speak. It includes interviews with members of the Slackers, the Toasters, the Pietasters, Bomb The Music Industry, the Forthrights, the Frighteners and much more, including studio/tour footage that’s candid and never been seen before.
