Beach Road Weekend has released the schedule for the 2022 Festival featuring performances by more than two dozen artists including Beck, Wilco, The Avett Brothers, and Billy Strings. The festival takes place August 26-28, 2022 at Veteran's Memorial Park in Vineyard Haven, Ma.

Beach Road Weekend 2022 will feature two massive stages side-by-side meaning the music will keep going all day, uninterrupted. Fans will find several dramatic improvements that will enhance access to Beach Road for mainland visitors, and to make the experience of seeing the bands in Veterans Memorial Park in Tisbury better than ever.


Dozens of artists will perform at venues across the island, including the Loft in Oak Bluffs. Last summer, Beach Road Weekend invested more than $100,000 to upgrade the sound and lighting systems at the Loft. Highlights for the season include folk legends Livingston Taylor and Tom Rush, Neighbor, Deer Tick, and country/bluegrass stars Dalton and the Sheriffs and Sierra Hull. This year, the Loft will once again play host to the official Beach Road Weekend afterparty. Friday, August 26th Boston funk band RIPE kicks things off after a day of music at Veterans Memorial Park. On Saturday night Sammy Rae & the Friends and Neighbor will bring the house down. Finally, legendary Boston band Guster will close out Beach Road Weekend at the Loft Sunday night. The schedule is below. Additional shows will be announced in the future. Tickets will be available at
