Get ready because the the 2013 Dew Tour Beach Championships in Ocean City, MD just got bigger! On Friday and Saturday nights, continue the celebration of action sports with FREE concerts on the beach! The beach will come alive with performances by chart-toppers Krewella and New Politics along with headliner Talib Kweli and funk-hop artist DJ Stimulus.
Columbia Records electro-punk trio Krewella will headline a night of live music that will include a performance of their chart-topping, gold certified dance single “Alive.” With catchy melodies and heavy basslines, their performance is sure to light up the Ocean City crowd.
New Politics will kick off the night with their dynamic live show, combining everything from breakdancing to guitar solos for a punk-pop-dance rock party. New Politics continues to gain momentum off their hit single “Harlem” from their sophomore album A Bad Girl In Harlem which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers’ chart.
Talib Kweli, who recently released his 5th solo album Prisoner of Conscious, will hit the Dew Tour stage with the socially aware lyrics and dramatic beats that made him one of hip-hop’s most successful underground acts of the last 20 years. From crowd favorites to brand new tracks, his live show will infuse the Ocean City crowd with a level of energy fitting the high action Beach Championships.
Kweli’s performance on the main stage will be preceded by a set from DJ Stimulus during the Skateboard Battle at the Beach Street Session with top skaters including Ryan Decenzo, Greg Lutzka and Manny Santiago.
Stimulus’ charisma and his trademark ‘funk-hop’ sounds will act as the backdrop for the fast-paced jam format of the skate contest. The Street Session will take place in the Dew Tour Experience and be shown on screens at the main stage via live video feed.
