If it wasn’t exciting enough already that blink-182 has reunited (Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus) for new music and a world tour and that Paramore is staging an emo-pop comeback, the news that both acts will be together for Atlantic City’s newest mega musical fest is definitely thrilling.

Announced at the crack of dawn this morning, Live Nation, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and Atlantic City Beach Concerts (the latter of whom have already hosted live events with Phish, the Vans Warped Tour 25th Anniversary, The Chainsmokers and more, Philadelphia acts such as Michele Zauner and Japanese Breakfast, The Starting Line and Mannequin Pussy and Jack Antonoff from New Jersey’s Bleachers lead the charge, with other locals such as NJ’s Folly, the Front Bottoms, L.S. Dunes, featuring Frank Iero of My Chemical Romance, The Happy Fits, Turnstile, Coheed and Cambria, Jimmy Eat World, IDLES, PUP, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Beach Bunny, Motion City Soundtrack, The Linda Lindas, Drug Church, Electric Callboy, Hot Milk, I Am The Avalanche, Knocked Loose, Loveless, Meet Me @ The Altar, Neil Rubenstein, Oxymorrons, Pinkshift, Phantom Planet, Royal & The Serpent, Scowl, Siiickbrain, Waterparks, Zulu, and more will hit the beach.

Just in case the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority sounds too official, the CRDA – the only agency of its kind in the United States – uses Atlantic City casino re-investments as a ”catalyst for meaningful, positive improvement in the lives of New Jersey residents since 1984.” That means every time you lose at blackjack at the Ocean Club or Harrahs, you help hook up bands such as blink-182 and Paramore to play the beach, with nearly $2 billion invested into more than 400 projects statewide, of which $1.8 billion has been invested in Atlantic City. 

Keep on scratching.
