EVENT DESCRIPTION

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.

Additional boardwalk “side stages” are located at 13th, 22nd, and 27th Streets, and feature local artists.

Pass, someday it will again be worth driving the 3.5hrs for. I used to love that weekend but last few years the line up just doesn't suit my tastes. I do get everyone has different taste so if this is yours have fun!

Another reason to stay home. Never heard of any of these bands

I'm so EXCITED!!!!

Lee Brice. ❤

Great lineup!

I have never heard of any of these bands.

Yesss Cracker AND Camper Van Beethoven! Can’t wait!

We got our room

10$ days we get a big storm again. I know it's been twice now when 311 tries to do this one. 😣

CAN'T WAIT TO SEE 311! SP&LYL!

I was hoping for 311!! Whoop 🙌😍

Awful line up ! What happened to the big acts we use to get ? So very disappointing

You can keep this line up

Do you have to get all three days? I literally just want to see 311. 😂

Is there any type of set list yet seeing as its 5 days?

Soooo 311 plays 915 PM night before 0630 half marathon? 😮

Benjamin Hamon this actually looks pretty cool! Lee Brice, parmalee!

Whoa Camper Van Beethoven! Haven't heard them in a long time!

YES MOON TAXI!!!

What’s the difference between the VIP and Preferred Viewing pass? They both have access to the front stage

Last years line up was much better

Sadly I think I know 3

Wooh!

Let's have a back up plan so 311 can play if it storms.

Do you have schedules for the line up?

Pat Benatar, KC And Sunshine Band, Candle box, ZZ Top,

Please bring some hard rock/heavy metal. Best show I've seen there was Twisted Sister on the beach! Also enjoyed the Billy Idol show and the Joan Jett show. Haven't bothered coming down for a few years now, just hasn't suited my tastes I guess

How about some Dee Snider, he's on tour supporting his new album. Ratts out there, Alice Coopers got shows going on, and Papa Roach never stops touring! I guess ya got it all set for this year so I'm just wishing. Keep em in mind for next year though

Lee Brice on Friday night

Hope it is something other than Country

Im supposed to get tickets for this i won them from the appomattox county apple fair

If yall book 311. Please please please make sure theres a backup because we know how that usually ended...l was so distraught both years being cancelled!

Brenda Streeter

When can we purchase tickets

Flenner Hoagland ❤️❤️❤️

Can’t wait

Please no country music. Yawn!

Susan Cupp Weldon

Stacey Radler Carlin... Good weekend for a trip to VA Beach! 😁

Toula Schafer
