Skate And Surf Festival is powered by GameChanger World, an artist-powered mobile gaming platform company, led by John D’Esposito who also founded The Bamboozle, one of the East Coast’s oldest and largest music festivals. What originally began as a local gathering for skate-punks in 2002 held in Asbury Park, New Jersey, Skate And Surf Festival quickly became popular and eventually evolved into The Bamboozle.
During its reign, the Skate And Surf Festival consistently presented musical talent from both established and new artists spanning multiple music genres as well as featuring up-and-coming acts who then became break-out artists. Festival alumni include My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Joan Jett, New Found Glory, The Descendents, and Coheed and Cambria.
Skate And Surf Festival will also host the “The Break Contest,” a staple of The Bamboozle. The official unsigned band competition is held in several tri-state venues. For more information, please visit: http://www.SkateAndSurfFest.com.
