JELLYFISH FESTIVAL IS ONE AMAZING WEEKEND WITH TWO GREAT SHOWS
Regional, local, and national stars to perform during the Ultimate Beach Festival
OCEAN CITY, MARYLAND – Jellyfish Festival is thrilled to announce its full complement of entertainment and activations for 2021 event over Labor Day weekend. The most significant addition is Jellyfish sharing the sand with country music star Brad Paisley.
“It’s super exciting to bring all these elements together on one great weekend,” said Jellyfish founder and director Brad Hoffman. “Most of all, we like bringing people together on the sand to celebrate good music, good times, and watch the sun set on summer 2021.”
The Brad Paisley show is being produced by Ocean City Concerts in conjunction with Jellyfish Festival. His show will be happening Sunday, Sept. 5, on the Jellyfish main stage, with doors opening at 3 PM and the show scheduled to start at 5 PM. To buy tickets for this show, visit www.OceanCityConcerts.com.
The Jellyfish lineup ramps up Saturday on the main stage from 12-9 PM with scheduled performances by heralded blues artist Anthony Gomes, folk rockers Derek Woods Band, reggae rocker Ted Bowne of Passafire, plus Ray Wroten and Never Ending Fall. Ocean 98’s Magellan will be keeping the crowd going with a mix of great music from his DJ booth.
Sunday entertainment includes Rockoholics, Crosstown Walkers, and Troll Tribe. These bands are scheduled to play 12-3 PM on the B-Stage.
We thank our many sponsors for making these tickets available at no cost to the public! Saturday’s entertainment will run from 12-9 PM right on the beach. You can get your free tickets for Saturday’s show online: https://shorecraftbeer.ticketspice.com/jellyfish-festival
But Jellyfish isn’t just about the music. We offer a lot of other great things to see and do, all of them free to the public, starting with our Vendor Village, filled with an eclectic mix of artisans and creative minds bringing their wares and creations to the public.
Our partnership with the First State Detachment of the Marine Corps League allows us to bring the fittest people on the planet to help guide you through your fitness challenge – the United States Marines! The Marine Corps Fitness Challenge features obstacles for visitors of all ages and skill levels. Are you up to the challenge?
You’ll love our “fat tire” obstacle course provided by the Eastern Shore IMBA. Fat tire bikes are the latest rage in the biking community! This course was a staple of the inaugural Jellyfish Festival in 2019 and we’re excited to bring it back and keep the wheels spinning.
The latest craze in beach fun is the game of cornhole! Jellyfish is featuring the first-ever East Coast Cornhole Championships. Dozens of teams of 2-3 players will compete right on the beach sand for cash prizes. Drink a cold beer, play some cornhole, and maybe win some cash! This event is a production of the Maryland Cornhole Organization. To register for this tournament, visit MarylandCornhole.net or contact organizer Dale Moran at [email protected] or text/call (443) 867-4762.
The most exciting addition to Jellyfish 2021 is the first-ever craft beer festival on the sand in Ocean City. This component is produced by Shore Craft Beer and features local and regional craft beer samples served while you enjoy Jellyfish bands in the main entertainment zone. This beer event is scheduled for 12-4 PM on Saturday. This is a paid and ticketed event. You can reserve your tickets today at ShoreCraftBeerFest.com.
Jellyfish Festival is scheduled for September 4-5 in downtown Ocean City, between North Division Street and Somerset Street.
“We would not be able to produce this event without the support of our local partners, sponsors, and our team. Jellyfish is about community. We built this for the visitors and our local community,” said Hoffman. “Let’s rock the sand, that’s the plan!”
