New Alternative Music Festival Update: Sunday Cancelled, Friday and Saturday To Continue As Planned

We are extremely disappointed to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances, NAMF's Sunday, September 18th event must be cancelled.

All performances and after-show events scheduled for Friday and Saturday will continue as planned, albeit with a bit of schedule shuffling (see below).

Important Info For Ticket Holders:

- All single day tickets purchased for Sunday, September 18th will be fully refunded.
- Three-day passes will become two-day passes and ticket holders will receive a $25 refund.
- Going forward, two-day passes will be available for $50. Single day tickets will remain for $28 in advance and $30 on the day of show.

Once again, we are deeply sorry about this change and any inconvenience that it may cause. We worked as hard as possible up to the last minute to keep the festival's third day on, but, sadly, there was no way to remedy the situation.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to us here.

Don Giovanni Records Presents:
September 16-17 at Convention Hall, Asbury Park, NJ

This fall, Don Giovanni Records will host The New Alternative Music Festival: three days of music without multi-nationals.

The concerts will take place September 16th - 17th at the Convention Hall in Asbury Park, NJ. Care has been taken to keep the ticket price as low as possible. Individual tickets will be sold for $28 in advance and $30 at the door, with a two-day pass available for $50. The shows will be all ages. NAMF is a one-time-only event and will not be repeated in subsequent years.

Who will be there: Algebra II, Antibodies, Aye Nako, Mal Blum, California X, Downtown Boys, Dusk, Dyke Drama, Fake Limbs, Finchler, Fortune Yeller, Giant Peach, Girlpool, Izzy True, Jamie Kilstein and The Agenda, Kindling, Amy Klein, Mikey Erg, Mirah, Moor Mother, Nude Beach, Ought, Outer Spaces, P.S. Eliot, Pinkwash, Radiator Hospital, Reflowered Girls, The Rememberables, Rye Coalition, Sammus, Screaming Females, Secret Mountain, Sex Stains, Laura Stevenson, Teenage Halloween, Tenement, Trophy Wife, Try The Pie, Upset, Vagabon, Wild Rice.

Who will not: Multi-national corporations.

The New Alternative Music Festival is not just a concert it is also an intentional event. It's an attempt to gather together bands with diverse sounds, but common values. The performers are independent artists without ties to major labels or their music distribution. There will be no sponsors, no backdoor advertising via branded content, or other base money-making schemes.

This is a pro-weirdo event held in direct opposition to the apolitical sludge that has come to pass as "indie" and that has nothing to do with operating independently. Where many festivals reflect critical acclaim, the NAMF lineup is meant to reflect a community. In addition to making great music, many of these artists are involved because they are peers, tourmates, and friends.

Why do we need a new alternative? In recent years, the words "alternative" and "independent" have lost much of their meaning. In the past, these terms might have indicated a willful rejection of mainstream sensibilities and business practices. Today they have come to signify the quirky and the benign.

The New Alternative Music Festival is an attempt to retake lost ground. For three days, it will seek to create a space for music to be heard without commercial interruption.

The New Alternative Music Festival will have two stages, though no bands will be overlaping.
The second stage is called the Stage A Revolution Stage in order to bring attention to an important Asbury Park program:

"Stage A Revolution is a music and mentoring program that empowers girls and women through music education, volunteerism, and activities that foster self-respect, leadership skills, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. We're a Girls Rock Camp Alliance-affiliated organization that aims to host events and workshops year-round, with our first summer day camp in Asbury Park next summer (2017). Right now, we're looking for musicians and cool local thing-doers to volunteer and help get things started!"
