The Upstage was a historic rock club located on Cookman Avenue in Asbury Park from 1968-1971. The club, opened by Tom and Margaret Potter, would become the venue where young artists such as Stevie Van Zandt, Southside Johnny Lyon, Bruce Springsteen, Garry Tallent, Danny Federici and others would jam together for hours lasting until dawn.

The 2017 Asbury Park Music & Film Festival will be presented by Founding Partners RWJ Barnabas Health and the Asbury Park Press.  The Festival would also like to thank Two River Community Bank for their continued partnership.
