Beach Music Cruise-In blends bands on the beach and hot rods on the boardwalk with dancing under the stars in a jam-packed blast to the past! Top Beach Music bands from up and down the East Coast descend on the Virginia Beach oceanfront in a nostalgic salute to the “good old days” of cool cars and hot tunes.
A three-day series of paid concerts is presented on a stage built right on the beach at 30th Street. Evening concerts on Friday give way to a full day of entertainment, including the car show, on Saturday and more daytime concerts on Sunday.
