In addition, the initial schedule for the 2022 MV Concert Series was announced with more than 20 concerts across Martha's Vineyard including the Loft.


Dozens of artists will perform at venues across the island, including the Loft in Oak Bluffs.

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.
