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.
