Thomas Rhett, Brooks & Dunn, and Jason Aldean To Headline 2nd Annual TidalWave Fest In New Jersey

Some of country music's biggest names are headed to the beaches of Atlantic City next summer!

For the second summer in a row, a three-day TidalWave will be coming to Atlantic City.

The TidalWave Music Festival, that is.

The weekend-long country music fest will set up shop on the ocean side of the boardwalk from Aug. 11 to 13 next summer with headlining acts Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett, and Brooks & Dunn — the 1990s “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” line dance duo.

Other big names include Iowa native Hailey Whitters and 90s icon Jo Dee Messina!

The festival will also include a Next From Nashville second stage dotted with intriguing acts like Pillbox Patti, the whip-smart alter ago of Nashville songwriter Nicolette Hayford; Madeline Edwards, the Black singer-songwriter who joined Mickey Guyton and Brittney Spencer on the CMA Awards in 2021 for “Love My Hair”; and Texas alt-country legend Ry Wylie Hubbard. "Whiskey on You" singer Nate Smith will be making his TidalWave debut along with "Wild As You" singer Corey Kent.

Set up in collaboration with the Rock The Ocean Foundation, the festival aims to raise awareness of ocean conservation. The Rock The Ocean Foundation, in partnership with Tortuga Festival, is the 501(c)3 non-profit that focuses on 5 core values: turtle conservation, shark conservation, coral reef degradation, overfishing and marine pollution.

Passes for the 3 day festival go on sale December 16th! Click here for more info!
