This weekend in Seaside Heights, NJ is your chance to hear  some great live music  and see new bands, with New Jersey's premier Emerging Artist Festival. The Seaside Music Festival started yesterday May 17th, continues today, and concludes tomorrow night May 19th.

The Seaside Music Festival is a free admission three-day music festival that takes place throughout bars, restaurants, and on the beach at Seaside Heights, NJ. The music festival is now in its 5th year and hosts performances by favorite local bands, out-of-towners, and touring acts for an eclectic weekend of live music. A variety of musical genres take over the town with great rock and alternative acts, singer-songwriters, DJs/electronic acts, pop-singers/groups, folk-artists, and many others. The best part of it all—ITS ALL FREE.

There is something for everyone this weekend. Besides all the great music you will hear over the 3 day event, there is also the vendor village on the boardwalk, The Harley Hog Pit, and don't miss the American Muscle Auto Show. There is also surfing clinics and so much more.
