Welcome to the debut of Frantic City! Our goal is to bring some of the most exciting bands in the world to Atlantic City, New Jersey’s resort by the sea. This year we are offering a bountiful array of talent in the form of Car Seat Headrest, Yo La Tengo, Snail Mail, Murder City Devils, Shannon and The Clams, Rocket From The Crypt, Superchunk, The Raveonettes, Samiam, Titus Andronicus, Protomartyr and Control Top. The event is being hosted by funnyman Fred Armisen. It all takes place outdoors just yards from the boardwalk at The Orange Loop Amphitheater (OLA).
The Orange Loop Amphitheater is the centerpiece of a vibrant three-block section of Atlantic City that is filled with one-of-a-kind restaurants, bars, coffee shops, music venues, and more. Be sure to check out establishments such as Bourre for New Orleans themed food and drink and Hayday for your coffee cravings. For traditionalists, Atlantic City offers great old-school offerings from the likes of Tony’s Baltimore Grill, The White House Sub Shop, and The Knife and Fork Inn.
For gambling buffs, there are nine nearby casinos located in Atlantic City. A number of which can be found on the city’s sprawling boardwalk. There are also bountiful shops and a plethora of family entertainment. Why not turn Frantic City into a weekender?
