Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.: The Sea.Hear.Now Fest Turns Three With Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Billy Idol, Patti Smith And More

Sea.Hear.Now is fast becoming one of our favorite festivals, and not just because it’s in nearby Asbury Park, N.J. We’ve been there each year for two days’ worth of music, art, surfing, food and sustainability, and it gets better each time. 2021’s fest—held last Saturday and Sunday—featured Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, the Avett Brothers, Billy Idol, Patti Smith, Lord Huron, Orville Peck, Ani DiFranco, Tank And The Bangas and many more.
