We finally made it to the unofficial start of summer and why not kick it off with one of the biggest music festivals New Jersey will see this year.

The Adjacent Music Festival is happening on the beach of Atlantic City on Saturday, May 27, and Sunday, May 28.

For those of you in your late-20s to mid-40s, this festival is a blast from the past to our teenage years. Think the Vans Warped Tour but for one weekend.

You could compare it to the OLD Bamboozle since that was another festival from back in the day that was tailored to the scene and beyond, but we all know what happened when that festival tried to make a comeback this year (and if you don’t, read THIS).

Now I'm sure the first thing you want to know is who is playing this festival to see if buying tickets is worth it (because, yes, single-day tickets are still available).

The lineup is already broken up by the day. Here’s a taste of what you can look forward to:

Saturday, May 27



Jimmy Eat World

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness



I Am The Avalanche

Sunday, May 28

Blink 182


Coheed & Cambria

The Front Bottoms

Motion City Soundtrack


The Starting Line


You can check out the full lineup HERE.

As I said before, single-day tickets are still available to purchase and there are different tiers you can look into like General Admission to different VIP packages.

Just remember, it is a festival, so get your wallet ready for it, but I personally think that punk-rock nostalgia is worth it.

You can find more information on this festival HERE.

Check Out the Best-Selling Album From the Year You Graduated High School

Do you remember the top album from the year you graduated high school? Stacker analyzed Billboard data to determine just that, looking at the best-selling album from every year going all the way back to 1956. Sales data is included only from 1992 onward when Nielsen's SoundScan began gathering computerized figures.

Going in chronological order from 1956 to 2020, we present the best-selling album from the year you graduated high school.

LOOK: 50 songs you won't believe are turning 50 this year

From classic rock anthems to disco hits and everything in between, Stacker surveyed Billboard's Hot 100 list of top songs in 1973 and highlighted the top 50.
