Get ready for a big weekend of films, live performances and panel discussions. It's the fourth annual Asbury Park Music and Film Festival and it's going to be another huge year!

Highlights include an evening with New Jersey legend Danny DeVito, world premiere movies like Break on Thru: A Celebration of Ray Manzarek and the Doors, screenings of the Grammy award nominated film Long Strange Trip, and musical performances from Sublime with Rome, Wyclef Jean, Govt. Mule, and Bobby Bandiera with Patrick Davis and his Midnight Choir, just to name a few.

Plus Big Joe will be broadcasting his show LIVE Saturday and Sunday 10:00 am - 3:00 pm from inside Convention Hall. He'll be playing Jersey's Favorite Hits and interviewing this year's film festival celebrities as we get ready for what each night of the festival has to offer.
