    There's also something for the dance floor enthusiasts and guitar lovers out there: Black Joe Lewis, The Knocks, Chvrvhes, Madeon, City and Colour, Ghost Beach, Pretty Lights, Gareth Emry, Little Green Cars, Icona Pop, TJR, Sky Ferreira, Congorock and Manufactured Superstars will hit the main stage.
    Tickets for the festival are once again completely free and will be available Aug. 9 starting at noon on Attendees are asked to donate $10 to help fight youth homelessness.

    Concert goers will also have the opportunity to indulge in Maryland crab cakes, Boardwalk Fries and (shocker) a large selection of beer and cocktails.
