fun.'s Jack Antonoff Starting New Music Festival

(Radio.com) Having grown up in New Jersey, Jack Antonoff (Bleachers, fun.) knows that while you live there, you're always in the shadow of New York. And that's the inspiration behind the name of a new festival that he's curating starting this year: The Shadow of the City.

Taking place Sept. 19 at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, N.J. (both in the club and in the parking lot outside), the event will feature Antonoff's Bleachers, Charli XCX, Vic Mensa, the Front Bottoms, MisterWives, Cults, How to Dress Well and Robert Delong.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Antonoff discussed New Jersey and its influence on his life and music."I grew up in New Jersey, and it's one of those places where you spend your life trying to get out," he said. "It's funny because it's one of the most incredible places in the world. The term 'shadow of the city,' specifically, means what it sounds like. New Jersey is such a unique place because it is literally in the shadow of the greatest city in the entire world." Read more here.
