Tisbury selectmen have approved the return of Beach Road Weekend, a three-day music festival in Veterans Memorial Park that made its debut last August.

This year’s festival will take place July 24 through July 26, a change by the organizers that selectman Jeff Kristal said addresses the chief objection to last year’s pilot.

“The number one complaint we got last year was, ‘Why do you have to do it in August?’” Mr. Kristal said.

Selectman and board chairman Melinda Loberg gave the 2019 festival high marks.

“There were minimal glitches and concerns in the weekend, and a lot of accolades from the community, so we approved the concept of having a concert again this summer,” she said.

Festival organizer Adam Epstein of Chicago and Edgartown did not attend the selectmen’s meeting Wednesday. While Mrs. Loberg said she would have preferred him present, Mr. Kristal said it wasn’t necessary to get the dates approved.

“Last year, we dragged it out and we got really tight on the timeline,” he said. “It’s an expense to come out here, and I don’t know why the heck they’d want to come out here in the middle of January and February.”

Town administrator Jay Grande said no performers’ names have been announced for Beach Road Weekend, but that Mr. Epstein was also contemplating a separate application for an additional event in the park the evening of July 22.

“That would be the outdoor concert related to Jaws, but that is only something they’re talking about. They haven’t made a decision,” Mr. Grande said.

Last year, Beach Road Weekend opened with a screening of Jaws with its John Williams music score performed live on stage by the Cape Symphony, conducted by Jung-Ho Pak.

Selectmen unanimously approved the July 24-26 dates for the festival. “They don’t conflict really with other major events, except Sunday, when the Possible Dreams auction takes place, not in our town,” Mrs. Loberg said, adding:

“It won’t conflict with the Chicken Alley art show, like it did last year.”
