Since the first 'Light of Day' concert in 2000, the event has grown and grown, bringing in more acts and spreading to more venues across Asbury Park.

This year, to celebrate the 20th Anniversary, Light of Day is featuring over 50 events by 150 music acts in 5 cities across 3 states, all happening from January 10th-20th, 2020.

Check out this list of artists that will be there:

  • Willie Nile
  • Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers
  • James Maddock

...and that's just the first wave to be announced - more to come! There have been 19 festivals before this, and Bruce Springsteen has crashed 11 of them - you have to think he has something planned for the 20th anniversary, right?

Venues will include the Stone Pony, the Paramount Theater, the Saint, the Wonder Bar, House of Independents, McLoone’s Supper Club, and the Asbury Hotel, and more, and that's just in Asbury. Other events will take place in Montclair, NJ, New York City, Rockland County, NY, and Philadelphia, PA.

Light Of Day has raised $5.5million in 19 years, and hope to break the $6,000,000 mark this year. Tickets go on sale at Ticketmaster on Saturday, November 9th at noon. Follow LOD2020 on Facebook for more updates.
