The festival announcement comes after Beach Road Weekend “350”, three nights of socially distanced concerts on the Vineyard featuring moe. and Tedeschi Trucks Fireside Live to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the founding of Tisbury. The event also comes after Epstein and Innovation have built out multiple socially distanced concert sites during the pandemic,

Innovation Arts and Entertainment also brings concerts to the island through the Martha’s Vineyard Concert Series, presenting dozens of shows at the Loft in Oak Bluffs.
Beach Road 2022 is debuting a custom-built ticket and accommodations website created with the off-island visitor in mind. This allows the purchase of a weekend stay at more than 10 of the island’s hotels and campgrounds including passes to three days of Beach Road Weekend.
