Still Rising: Marshfield’s Levitate Music Festival announces 2018 lineup



Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

As festival season creeps closer, jam sessions are already brewing on the South Shore, as today the Mashfield-based Levitate Music Festival rolls out its lineup for 2018.

The fest, which started as a 10-year-anniversary celebration for surf and skate shop, Levitate, will take place on July 7 and 8 this year at the Marshfield Fairgrounds. At first glance, it looks like a fitting post-July 4 holiday weekend.


Headliners for the sixth iteration of the reggae, roots, and folk weekend include Trey Anastasio Band, The Head and the Heart, and Slightly Stoopid, while some repeat acts for the fest like Stick Figure and Twiddle also pop out on the bill.

Also on deck are Lake Street Dive, Ripe, West End Blend, and The Elovators, all repping the New England music scene in their own unique way. Peep the full lineup below, get full ticket info here, and revisit our 2017 summary and recap of the fest’s ongoing expansion.
