EVENT DESCRIPTION

The Virginia Beach FunkFest Beach Party is the heart and soul of this weekend event, featuring music generated over the years by influential legends such as James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, George Clinton, and The Ohio Players. Funk is an American musical style that originated in the mid-to late-1960’s when African-American musicians blended soul music, soulful jazz, and R&B into a rhythmic, danceable new form of music. Funk brings a strong rhythmic groove of electric bass and drums to the foreground. Funk music was a major influence on the development of 1970’s disco music, and has even impacted house music and hip-hop.

Food, merchandise, and dance contests all contribute to a festive, “funky” vibe!

2020 LINEUP

The virtual Virginia Beach FunkFest Beach Party presented by Chartway Federal Credit Union has been postponed until Saturday, Sept. 26 and Sunday, Sept. 27. The delayed broadcast is the result of unavoidable technical circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Saturday’s show features E.U. (Experience Unlimited) and Rose Royce.

Sunday’s show features The Bar-Kays and The Dazz Band.

Shows still will be broadcast exclusively on YouTube, Facebook and WSKY. No FunkFest performances will occur on the beach at the oceanfront this year. All concerts will be virtual and online.
