The vibes will be immaculate at the 2022 Levitate Music Festival, which brings jam bands from near and far to the Marshfield Fair grounds from July 8-10.

As in years past, the headliners for this year’s festival are decidedly jam-heavy, with Jack Johnson, Phil Lesh & Friends, and Vulfpeck getting top billing.

Levitate Music Festival began as an offshoot of Levitate, a Marshfield surf and skate shop founded in 2003. Since then, the festival has grown from its small-town community concert spirit to welcome thousands to the South Shore each year.

“Never before has our mission to Levitate communities and bring people together through surf, music, art, and the outdoors felt so timely and appropriate,” Levitate founder Dan Hassett said in a press release. “The opportunity to bring our community back together couldn’t come at a better time.”

As a former surfer, Johnson will feel right at home at Levitate, which will be his only visit to Massachusetts on his current tour. As for Lesh, the Grateful Dead founding member currently has only one other show scheduled for all of 2022 (in Ventura, Calif.), so Deadheads will likely be in heavy supply.

Others in the packed 2022 Levitate Music Festival line-up include Stick Figure, Dirty Heads, Stephen Marley, Old Crow Medicine Show, Umphrey’s McGee, moe., Goth Babe, Durand Jones & The Indications, Donavon Frankenreiter, The Elovaters, Mihali, Sammie Rae & The Friends, Too Many Zooz, Fruition, Midnight North, Mike Love, Tropidelic, Hannah Wicklund, Melt, GA-20, Flipturn, Coral Moons, The New Motif, Sal Johnson & The Crowded Table, Sun Dog Organ Trio, and Sun Parade.

Many of the same acts were originally slated to play the 2020 edition of Levitate, which was postponed due to the pandemic. As such, many concertgoers had their tickets rolled over from 2020 to 2022, which means the remaining allotment of tickets is in limited supply. Nevertheless, you can still buy 3-day GA ($199) or 3-day VIP ($429) passes to the 2022 Levitate Music Festival on the Levitate Music Festival website. The fest strives for a family-friendly vibe, which is reflected by the $45 price point for its 3-day passes for children ages 4-12.
