ATLANTIC CITY — With summer just around the corner, the Atlantic City BeachFest Concert Series has announced its second beach concert. The Chainsmokers will perform July 29.
The EDM/pop duo are known for hits including “Closer,” “Paris,” “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Something Just Like This.” They will join special guest Bazzi for the show, the second in the beach concert series. The first will take place July 1 and feature Sam Hunt.
“We are so excited for our show in Atlantic City on July 29. We can’t think of a better place to be during the summer,” the band said in a statement. “As New Yorkers we always used to come down to A.C. this time of year and the vibes and weather was just perfect.”
The band also said they used to play concerts in the city in front of a “few hundred people,” and that it is exciting they will be back in front of “tens of thousands” of fans.
“We are going to be bringing a show A.C. has never seen before and look forward to sharing this really special moment with families, fans and people just coming to have a great weekend away,” the band said.
A spokesperson for the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, which funds the concerts, could not be reached for comment Monday.
The Chainsmokers is one of several high-profile bands the city has recruited to perform on the beach in recent years.
Last year, pop-star Pink performed for 50,000 on the beach in front of Caesars Atlantic City. The Ruff Ryders also attracted several thousand fans.
The Chainsmokers have been nominated four times for a Grammy, winning one for “Best Dance Recording” in 2017.
The band has also won four Billboard Music Awards and two American Music Awards.
