Party on the waterfront for Long Beach’s Shoreline Jam

With the onset of the summer solstice, it’s hard to imagine the season’s end coming anytime soon. There are countless barbecues, parties and concerts to attend before Californians may be ready to throw in the beach towel for fall. But in between all the happy hours, one entity of summer epitomizes the reggae scene: festivals, all the glorious multiple-day festivals. With California Roots down and Reggae in the Hills recently passed, reggae enthusiasts still have many events to go before summer’s end. However, there is one festival that remains at the close of August to ease this sorrowful transition of the seasons: Long Beach’s 4th Annual Shoreline Jam.

Anyone expecting full days of festival fun will definitely be getting the most bang for their buck.

Located at Queen Mary Events Park, the Shoreline Jam is ready to rock the waterfront August 30th and 31st of 2014. The Dirty Heads and Pepper headline the two nights although big names pave the way – beginning to end – including J Boog, Collie Buddz, The Grouch and Eligh, The Aggrolites, The Simpkin Project, Jet West and Brewfish. Anyone expecting full days of festival fun will definitely be getting the most bang for their buck.

Speaking of payment, after an entire summer of shelling out cash for concerts, it’s probably disconcerting to think about breaking your bank for one last hoorah. But, contrary to other festivals with sky-high admission fees, the Shoreline Jam remains completely affordable with 2-day general admission tickets going for the low price of $45! For those commuting to the area, the option of staying on the Queen Mary ship is available and parking is only $15 per diem. VIP ticket bundles can be purchased prior to the event including VIP lounge areas, two drink tickets per person and free access to the ship on concert days. Slipping into summer is easy, but for those who refuse to end it, there’s always the Shoreline Jam!
