You’ll Levitate When You See This Lineup!

You’ll levitate when you see a lineup like this! The 11th annual Levitate Festival has announced the event taking place over the 4th of July weekend at Marshfield Fairgrounds in Marshfield, MA. Last year was something special indeed as the festival celebrated 10 years and 20 years of the Levitate brand itself. This year is the 11th edition and there will be some huge names such as newly reunited Sublime with original members Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson, to be fronted by Jakob Nowell, son of the late founding member Bradley Nowell.

Upon receiving an inside tip that Sublime, the 90s surf-punk icons that defined a generation were rumored to reunite, Levitate organizers moved quickly to arrange that Sublime would take the stage for their first and only live Northeast performance at Levitate Music & Arts Festival.  “This is great because I haven’t had the opportunity to play with Bud Gaugh in over a decade, and to have Brad’s son playing our music is the closest thing possible to playing with my old buddy Brad, ” said Sublime bassist Eric Wilson.

In addition to this very special headlining act, the lineup also includes powerhouse female fronted acts Lake Street Dive and Tash Sultana on Saturday, indie rockers Mt. Joy on Friday, and a star studded dynamic lineup ranging from favorites Dirty Heads to hometown heroes The Elovaters on their meteoric rise, viral sensations Oliver Anthony,  as well as Richy Mitch and the Coal Miners, and The virtuosic prowess of Grace Bowers and Cory Wong, plus the authentic Americana of Charley Crockett adds to the incredible and diverse talent at this year’s festival.

Levitate Music & Arts Festival started as a party for the surf shop’s 10 year anniversary and has grown into something special. The beloved festival will have national touring acts as well as local talent celebrating the region.

We love that Levitate can celebrate this community through the uplifting power of creativity,” says Levitate owner Dan Hassett. “It’s incredible to see what has grown from local roots and we’re excited to see this year’s event come to life with unique curation based off of our fan’s recommendations, very special headliners we’re grateful to work with, and we’re particularly proud that the festival can serve as a platform for emerging area artists.”

Along with the world-class musical talent, Levitate is a family-friendly event with tons to do. The festival is eco-friendly and has a blend of vendors, dozens of food trucks, art installations, and a kid’s camp! The kids zone is run by Levitate Camp Counselors which encourages creativity and a shared love of the outdoors with the next generation – a value at the very core of Levitate’s mission. Each day of the Festival is packed with opportunities to explore a world of creativity and memory-building for families and festival lovers alike. One percent of each ticket sold will be contributed to the Levitate Foundation, a non-profit whose mission is to cultivate vibrant communities by creating and conserving access to music, art, and the outdoors. We love it!
