A petition has been started by a local to have Attila removed from Skate and Surf.
Last year, the legendary Skate and Surf Festival returned to Asbury Park after ten years away. While the man behind the scenes, John D, has the city's best interest at heart, he has made careless mistakes when booking certain performers. Last year, upon moving the festival to Asbury, the city required he remove the hip hop artist DMX from the bill, citing homophobia in his music. This year, a band called Attila is on his festival's lineup.

Skate and Surf has changed this year's location to Asbury Park (instead of Middletown, NJ), as PropertyOfZack has learned. POZ has also announced that Knuckle Puck, Unlocking The Truth, Lil Dicky, Animals As Leaders and United Nations will be playing, as well as the facts that My Chemical Romance (duh) and Brand New ((super duh)) will NOT be playing.

Skate and Surf Fest is looking to return to Asbury Park.
O'Brien will present a special event application to members of the City Council at the March 26 meeting. He has been working with Surf and Skate founder John D’Esposito to return the concert series to its Asbury roots, he said. "We hope to have everyone get behind it and be supportive in Asbury Park,” he said. “It started in Asbury and our goal is to bring it back home."
