On March 14, 2016, Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff announced that the second annual “Shadow of the City” music festival will be held on June 18, 2016 in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
The 1975 will be headlining the festival along with performances by Carly Rae Jepsen,, BØRNS, Bishop, FRNKIERO ANDTHE CELLABRATION, Shamir and Hana. A few of these artists are Untitled favorites with features in previous issues!
Jack Antonoff’s first band, Steel Train, is doing a special reunion performance during the festival.

This is definitely the year of The 1975. Their current album, I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it, debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 Chart. Tracks off the album, including “The Sound”, “UGH!”, and “Love Me” are also climbing the charts. They will be joining the music festival in the middle of their own headlining U.S. tour, which starts in April. Take a look at their exclusive interview with the Untitled in 2014 here.
Carly Rae Jepsen, who was featured in The Untitled’s #GirlPower Issue, is also currently touring the US. Recently at one of her shows, she and actor Bob Saget sang the Fuller House theme song together on stage. Take a look at Jepsen’s exclusive interview and photoshoot from the #GirlPower Issue here.
