Sea Hear Now, New Jersey’s sprawling homegrown rock and surf festival, announced Tuesday its 2023 lineup, set to commandeer the Jersey Shore late this summer.

Rock titans Foo Fighters and The Killers will headline the two-day event, which returns to the Asbury Park beach and neighboring Bradley Park Sept. 16 and 17.

Also performing are Weezer, Greta Van Fleet, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Mt. Joy, Sheryl Crow, The Beach Boys. New Jersey acts on the bill include Adam Melchor, Waiting on Mongo, Quincey Mumford, Yawn Mower and more. See the full lineup here or below.

Two-day general admission tickets begin at $210. Single day tickets will also be available, beginning at $125. Ticket presale begins Thursday at 9 a.m. on the festival’s website. Sign up now for a presale code.

Sea Hear Now, which since its 2018 outset has built a sterling reputation as a boutique festival of eclectic music and easy beach vibes, typically draws 30,000 fans per day to the Shore.

The Foo Fighters have plenty of New Jersey history, last performing here in Camden in 2018 and most notably on the Asbury Park beach in 2012 during the last Bamboozle. The band suffered a major loss last year when longtime drummer Taylor Hawkins died March 25, 2022.

The Killers, who last played New Jersey in 2016, are also scheduled to play in Atlantic City in March.

Previous headliners include Green Day and Stevie Nicks (2022); Pearl Jam and The Smashing Pumpkins (2021); Dave Matthews Band and The Lumineers (2019); and Jack Johnson and Incubus (2018).
