Levitate Music and Arts Festival is returning on July 7-9 in Marshfield, MA and this year marks their 10th anniversary as a music and arts festival and 20 years for the Levitate Brand. The organizers share: “Levitate began as a beloved community surf and skate shop, the apex of East Coast surf culture and has now grown to not only Levitate Music Festival but a year-round live music venue, clothing manufacturer, youth summer camps and their own non-profit that helps to connect kids with arts and outdoor education in communities where accessibility may not be possible.”
Levitate Co-Founder Daniel Hasset elaborated further saying, “We set out to provide a different kind of festival for our town, and New England, back in 2013- championing our local musicians and artists and building a community who believe wholeheartedly in making the world a more creative and connected place. We’re excited to use this milestone to dig into our roots and expand our arts and mural programming, partner with more local vendors than ever, doubling our kids programs and expanding our greening efforts.”
The lineup is packed with heavy hitters and will feature headlining sets from celebrated 9 time Grammy award winner, Brandi Carlile, who is making her first appearance at the festival, along with co-headliners Trey Anastasio of the legendary jam rockers, Phish, and hometown favorites, American reggae band Stick Figure. The festival will also include sets from Celisse, Goose, The Heavy Heavy, Lucius, Peach Pit, Rebulition, Ziggy Marley and many others. Tickets are on sale Thursday 2/9 at 9am.

Co-Founder and Artist director of Levitate, Jess Hassett shares “I couldn’t be prouder of what Levitate has become. The line-up is full of amazing female artists including Brandi Carlile, Lucius, Celisse, and Melt. Pro-skater Nora Vasconcellos will be exhibiting her incredible skills and our arts and mural program will feature a bigger and more diverse group of brilliant artists than ever before. It was thrilling to design the poster this year knowing how far Levitate has come and how the community has been behind it and has made what Levitate is today.”
