A (sorta) new music festival has entered the chat: On Tuesday, Soundside Music Festival announced that Foo Fighters and Noah Kahan will headline its first-ever festival in Bridgeport, Connecticut this September.

Soundside replaces Connecticut’s previous Sound on Sound with a new name, and new promoter, C3 Presents, which helms festivals such as Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, and Governors Ball in New York City.

The two-day festival is set to take place at Seaside Park in Bridgeport on Sept. 28 and 29, and features performances from Queens of the Stone Age, Goo Goo Dolls, Teddy Swims, Fleet Foxes, Norah Jones, and Boyz II Men, among others.

Hurray for the Riff Raff, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, the War and Treaty, Thee Sacred Souls, Madi Diaz, and Lisa Loeb and Nine Stories will also make appearances at the two-day fest.

“I am very excited that Bridgeport is once again the host to this year’s Soundside Music Festival, formerly known as Sound On Sound,” said Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim in a press release. “In past years, this festival has drawn in over 50,000 visitors. I am sure this year it will again draw tens of thousands who will get to experience all that Bridgeport has to offer.”


The festival will feature a rotating, single-stage setup and will offer gourmet food from Connecticut-based restaurants and vendors. Tickets for the festival are set to go on sale Thursday, May 16 at 12 p.m. ET, although fans can access a presale for two hours before the tickets are made available to the general public.

Tickets start at $159, with Layaway Plans starting at $25 down. Local residents are also eligible for 15 percent discounts on tickets.
