The eighth annual Beardfest is officially going down June 13th–15th, in the beautiful setting of the Paradise Lakes Campground in Hammonton, New Jersey. The annual music and camping festival continues to grow with each passing year under Philadelphia’s psychedelic maestros Out Of The Beardspace, who works tirelessly to curate a unique festival unlike anything else in the area.
The first phase of this year’s Beardfest lineup includes headlining sets by The New Deal, Too Many Zooz, Anomalie (Live Band), The Main Squeeze, Nerve, and Ghost-Note. Beardfest will additionally see performances from Yellow Dubmarine (A Reggae Tribute To The Beatles), Becca Stevens, People’s Blues of Richmond, Grimace Federation, West Philly Orchestra, Gnarbot, Wednesday Night Titans (Zach Danziger & Kevin Scott), Deep Creatures, Pansong, Medusa’s Disco, Cousin Earth, Trap Rabbit and more.
Beardfest’s website explains,
Beardfest is a three-day celebration of creative energy that strives to enliven the artist in everyone. Beardfest offers attendees the opportunity to unplug in South Jersey’s beautiful Pinelands Preserve while enjoying music that spans an incredibly wide range of genres; but our definition of entertainment goes far beyond the spectator/performer dichotomy. At Beardfest, attendees have the opportunity to collaborate on large scale murals throughout the campgrounds, practice yoga, participate in a variety of collaborative music making activities, and share ideas in our community workshops.
