The festival is planned for August 26-28, and will feature 30 bands, two massive stages side-by-side, and uninterrupted music all day.
Among the artists already mentioned, Khruangbin, Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, Billy Strings, Dawes, Mt. Joy, the War and Treaty, Lucy Ducas, Lettuce, Aoife O’Donovan, Neal Francis, Sammy Rae & the Friends, Bahamas, Shovels & Rope, Brett Dennen, Bully, the National Reserve, and Jeremie Albino will be performing, along with others yet to be announced.
“We have been working on this lineup for the past two years, building relationships and connecting with artists that we know will keep our audience dancing on their feet for three days straight,” promoter and founder of the event Adam Epstein said in the release. “This is going to be the biggest party the Island has ever seen, and we can’t wait to share this incredible experience with everyone.”
Meanwhile, Epstein said Beach Road Weekend, through the Friends of the MV Concert Series, is offering an incentive to early ticket buyers through the Main Street Partnership. “The Main Street program, which extends to businesses beyond Main Street proper, rewards customers of Vineyard Haven businesses with exclusive access to a limited number of $99 three-day weekend passes for the 2022 iteration of the festival,” a press release states.
“Vineyard Haven welcomed us with open arms in 2019 as thousands of music lovers flooded the Island to see John Fogerty, Phil Lesh and Friends, Grace Potter, Dispatch, and nearly two dozen other bands,” Epstein said in the release. “Now we want to say thank you to everyone who has supported us in the past, as we get ready for what will be the biggest weekend of music in Martha’s Vineyard history.”
