Electronic dance music fans have scored another chance to party all day on the beach in Wildwood this weekend with the triumphant return of the BeachGlow Music Festival

This year’s headliners include Audien, whose “Insomnia” was at the top of Billboard’s U.S. dance charts this time last year, Oslo, Norway’s own Nico and Vinz and Los Angeles-based trap duo, Slander.

The two-day outdoor EDM party was given the green light in June when a state Superior Court ruled in favor of the event after organizers had been sued by The Morey’s Organization.

Other acts scheduled to perform include Robert DeLong, Elephante, Gazzo, Duo Two Friends, Synchronice, JayCosmic, DJ Fareoh and BeachGlow’s 21-year old founder, Dane Kunkle.

Besides the music, there will also be fireworks, beach games, a dunk tank, professional body painters, vendors and a tented food court and beer garden (for those age 21 and older, cash only).

Two-day general admission tickets start at $39 and entry is restricted to those 18 years and older.

BeachGlow is billed as the only non-profit EDM festival in the nation. Proceeds benefit Little Kids Rock, an organization that brings music education and instruments to under-served public schools.

Friday, July 8, 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Saturday, July 9, 3 p.m. to 11p.m. – on the beach at E. Burke Ave., Wildwood., NJ.
