Snoop Dogg to Headline Free 4TH of July Music, Arts & Technology Fest On Jersey City Waterfront – Details Here!

Mayor Steven M. Fulop presents his fifth annual July 4th festival on the Hudson Waterfront to celebrate Independence Day. The carnival-style spectacle, branded 50STAR FIRESHOW, spans the entire Greater New York City Area and will feature a headline concert performance by Snoop Dogg on the Private Internet Access stage in front of a 200,000 person audience lining the Hudson River Waterfront and area surrounding Harborside. The all-day music, food, technology and entertainment experience boasts views of the New York City skyline, and will become the scene of the state’s largest fireworks show.

Mayor Fulop and the City have continued to expand on the day-long, outdoor celebration on the Hudson River Waterfront, now in its fifth year. The celebration will begin at noon with a full-scale carnival, continuous entertainment, several beer gardens, and an elite conglomerate of food trucks. The show will culminate with the world-renowned fireworks company Grucci lighting up the skyline from multiple barges on the Hudson River.

“The synergies between music and tech are stronger than ever,” says music executive Akino Childrey, president of Private Internet Access’ parent company LTM Life and manager to rapper Royce 5’9.” “We are not only invested in customer protection and privacy online, we are also invested in educating the youth who will ultimately be responsible for creating the next Internet, a new world and beyond. We want to inspire kids to become more than just customers for streaming platforms and gaming systems. We want to continue to show the next generation how important it is to understand both music and Technology. Our partnership with Mayor Fulop on July 4 will allow Private Internet Access to take steps towards our goal.”

Mayor Fulop brought back Jersey City’s annual 4th of July attraction in 2014, in pursuit of his vision to create a July 4th celebration on a global scale, making Jersey City the epicenter for Independence Day event activity; the Independence Day equivalent of “The Ball Drop” on New Year’s Eve in Times Square.

50STAR FIRESHOW creates history by showcasing the Hudson River, providing a fireworks super show to spectators throughout North Jersey, as well as the entire West side of Manhattan. Since New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio’s relocated the Macy’s fireworks show to the East River, the Jersey City celebration has continued to grow momentum, attracting nearly 100,000 from throughout the region in 2017, with plans to grow the event exponentially in future years. In taking steps to preserve and highlight that growth, Jersey City has engaged hospitality stars Michael Satsky and Brian Gefter. Partnering with Satsky & Gefter of Provocateur Global Holdings brings a wealth of food and beverage, talent booking and concert production knowledge to help grow the annual experience from the grandest local celebration into the greatest 4th of July event in the region.

“I think the Jersey City side of Hudson River is going to be the place that people want to be for the 4th of July this year. Period. Between Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Grucci, and Snoop, we are raising the bar” said Mayor Fulop.

Spectators are encouraged to arrive by public transportation to the festival area, which is conveniently located with easy access to PATH trains, NY Waterway ferry service from Manhattan, and NJ TRANSIT’s Hudson-Bergen Light Rail. Anyone attending the event should also be advised that any bags or backpacks brought into the designated area are subject to search, and attendees are encouraged to pack belongings in clear bags that show contents. Coolers will not be allowed.
