Guster detailed the itinerary for their On The Ocean Weekend 2022. The Boston-based band’s annual event returns to Portland, Maine August 12 – 14.

The festivities for On The Ocean 2022 begin on August 12 with an acoustic Guster performance at Portland’s State Theatre where they will be joined by “seven stringed musicians,” as per press materials for the event. Singer-songwriter Josh Ritter will open up the evening.

Saturday sees the festival moving to Thompson’s Point where Guster will perform along with Shovels and Rope, Amythyst Kiah and local favorties Darlingside and Pete Kilpatrick. Saturday will also see a comedy and improv side stage curated by actor and Guster collaborator Connor Ratliff.

Sunday, Guster has something special in store for fans. “One of the key aspects of On The Ocean weekend is giving the fans an opportunity to connect with the band and each other as a community,” Guster’s Adam Gardner noted. “We’ve done some fun events in the past like bike trips, Guster Storytellers, and kayaking, but we’re upping the ante this year. On Sunday, we’re creating a summer family day camp experience we’re calling Camp Guster.”

Camp Guster will take place at Camp Winnebago in Fayette, Maine where band members will serve as camp counselors leading “an afternoon of traditional camp games and activities.” Camp Guster will wrap up with a fireside sing-a-long and acoustic performance.

Tickets for the August 12 and 13 events go on sale Friday, April 8th at 12 p.m. ET. Tickets for Camp Guster go on sale Wednesday, April 13th at 12 p.m. ET. Head here for ticket info and more.
