Asbury Park, NJ (PRWEB) June 18, 2008
The city by the shore that was recently named by USA Weekend as one of the Top 10 Places to Hear the Best of America's Music will truly earn its spot on the list this weekend as the Wave Gathering Festival returns for a third straight year. The festival will take place from June 20-22 in venues throughout Asbury Park, New Jersey. And, once again, AsburyMusic.com is the place to turn to for the most complete festival coverage.
AsburyMusic.com has put together its traditional Wave Gathering Preview which includes fully customized schedules, information on the artists, local area information such as restaurant and hotel directories, and the website's own recommendations for who to make sure to see and how to see as much music as humanly possible during the three days.
The customized schedules were introduced last year and proved to be the preview's most popular feature. Users can choose between creating their own personal schedule (based on the artists they choose from a list) for the entire festival or for a particular day. All it takes is a few keystrokes and a customized schedule is instantly created for you and ready for printing.
The tri-state area is well represented with bands from New York City, Philadelphia and the best in New Jersey talent. In fact, over 200 artists will perform at this year's festival - including artists from all around the world. Admission is $40 for a 3-day pass or $25 per day. Tickets are available online from ticketweb.com
Some of the artists scheduled to play include April Smith & The Last Picture Show, Ari Hest, Glen Burtnik, Greg Trooper, LP, Laura Warshauer, Matt O'Ree, Mieka Pauley, The Ruling Party, Spiraling, Val Emmich, Waves Of Nine, and the Whirling Dervishes.
In addition to the online preview, AsburyMusic.com's online radio station will be airing a "Wave Preview Show" at 3pm and 9pm each day. The station is located at http://www.ThePenguinRocks.com and is available anywhere in the world.
AsburyMusic.com has also put together an online magazine in PDF form with interviews and features on 25 of the artists playing the festival. These articles were written by Gary Wien, a three-time Asbury Music Award Winner for Top Local Music Journalist.
AsburyMusic.com has been Asbury Park's online music community since 2003. It is the place where local musicians hang out in the chat room and visiting musicians get the lowdown on the local area and best ways they can promote their show in town.
