Multiple live performances on oceanfront stages attract tens of thousands of visitors and residents of Hampton Roads to a star-spangled salute to this great country of ours at Stars Stripes Explosion!

Musical acts offer something for everyone with tribute bands saluting some of the biggest names in music. From 8:00pm-9:30pm, a stage erected right on the beach at 24th Street becomes the focal point for performances encompassing patriotic songs, Broadway standards, movie themes, and folk music.

Fireworks launched at 9:30pm at 24th Street finishes the memorable evening on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.

Musical acts offer entertainment for all ages with tribute bands dedicated to popular acts like Bruce Springsteen, Journey, and U2 and others...

Specific Locations:

Sandstock, A Tribute to Rock & Roll, is a beach-inspired variation on “Woodstock.”

National and regional tribute artists cover songs from some of the greatest rockers in history.

All performances, which are free to the public, are held on two “dueling” stages - the Hippy Dippy Stage and the Flower Power Stage - built right on the sand at 24th Street.

Grab some friends and join us for a fun-filled weekend of great live music.We will update the 2019 Entertainment Schedule as soon as it is available.
