The inaugural New Alternative Music Festival has been announced for Sept. 16-18 at the Convention Center in Asbury Park, NJ. Organized by Don Giovanni Records, the festival is described as a “pro-weirdo event held in direct opposition to the apolitical sludge that has come to pass as ‘indie’ and that has nothing to do with operating independently,” according to a press release. The festival will feature no sponsors, and the marketing tagline is “Three days of music without multi-nationals.”
The New Alternative Music Festival lineup will feature Screaming Females, P.S. Eliot (featuring Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee and her sister Alison, of Swearin’), Girlpool, Ought, California X, Mirah, Chain and the Gang, Upset, Downtown Boys, Antibodies, Radiator Hospital and many more.
