Fairfield native John Mayer is returning home to play the Sound On Sound Music Festival on September 30th + October 1st at Bridgeport’s Seaside Park. The A-list musician will headline the the festival, organizers have confirmed. A long time Fairfield, Connecticut resident, Mayer is the first artist to be announced for the 2023 lineup; the rest of the lineup is set to be announced Tuesday, Feb. 14.
A number of announcements have been made about the Sound On Sound festival in recent months, including plans to move the festival to a larger site within Seaside Park (the festival will move to the baseball and softball fields area of the park) as well as the promise of a “stadium-level” act that has yet to be announced.
The Sound On Sound news falls on the same day as Mayer’s first-ever fully solo tour announcement, which will take him across the country in the spring. The tour will feature Mayer on stage without a band as he performs both old and new songs on acoustic and electric guitar and piano. “I began my career on stage with only a guitar and a microphone. A lot has changed since then, but I knew one day I’d feel it in my heart to do an entire run of shows on my own again, just like those early days,” Mayer said in a Facebook post. “It took a couple of decades, but I feel it now.”
Sound on Sound has finally released their 2023 line and their are so many exciting artists attending this year!
Headlining the show will be Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Mayer, and Alanis Morissette. Then you can expect to see Trey Anastasio Band, Hozier, Nathanial Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Dispatch, Lord Huron, Mt.
