Ocean City, Maryland has thrown its hat in the ring! Multi-day music festivals have become all the rage. It seems as though there is a new one announced on a weekly basis. However, the first-ever Oceans Calling 2023 music fest is taking the cake!
With music spanning decades and genres, the anticipation is already palpable!
Originally slated for 2022, the first attempt at Ocean’s Calling was unfortunately canceled due to Hurricane Ian. Thankfully, the C3 Presents production crew alongside festival co-founders, partners, and local legendary bandmates of O.A.R took that as an opportunity to bring us an even more mind-blowing event.
From September 29th to October 1st, Ocean City Inlet Beach will host beachfront headlining performances by world-renowned musicians Jack Johnson and Alanis Morissette (9/29), John Mayer (9/30) and The Lumineers (10/1). Three days, three stages, endless fun.
Additional performers include Slightly Stoopid, Third Eye Blind, Michael Franti & Spearhead, O.A.R, Michigander, Incubus, Sheryl Crow, Noah Kahan, Dispatch, Jimmy Eat World, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Gin Blossoms, Weezer, Dirty Heads, Fitz and the Tantrums, G. Love & Special Sauce, The Wallflowers … AND MORE!
And that’s just the music! Attendees can look forward to cooking demos from the globally acclaimed chefs Robert Irvine (Restaurant Impossible) and Amanda Freitag (Chopped) that celebrate the regional cuisine hosted by actor Jason Biggs (American Pie)! Fans will also be offered concessions throughout the fest from local food vendors.
Additionally, the iconic Jolly Roger at the Pier amusement park, located inside the festival grounds, will be fully operational for festival goers, as admission will be included within each Oceans Calling Festival ticket purchase, creating a one-of-a-kind experience. Not to mention, the approval to come and go as you please until 7:00 PM each night.
