The sounds of rock, jazz, country, R&B, and more flood the Virginia Beach oceanfront for three sun-filled days over Labor Day Weekend at the American Music Festival. One of the largest outdoor music events on the East Coast, the American Music Festival brings together national, regional, and local acts to play on a gigantic stage erected on the beach at 5th Street, as well as stages in all the parks along the boardwalk. Just about every music genre is included, proving that there truly is “something for everyone.”
At the American Music Festival, the giant 5th Street main stage on the beach – featuring national recording artists - is the anchor. This venue is the ticketed concert venue for the festival, and is also the location of the VIP area. Sponsors and vendors are located on both the boardwalk and the beach from 5th-7th Streets. Ticket buyers have several options: purchase individual show tickets for Friday, Saturday, and/or Sunday; purchase a three-day all-inclusive concert “Passport Pin;” purchase a three-day all-inclusive VIP pass or VIP passes for Friday and/or Saturday; and Preferred Viewing area passes.
The other three main concert venues (17th Street Park, 24th Street Park, and 31st Street Park) feature national acts but are free to the public. All include sponsors and vendors located in the park and/or boardwalk.
Additional boardwalk “side stages” are located at 13th, 22nd, and 27th Streets, and feature local artists.
Proceeds support the Virginia Legends Walk.
