EVENT DESCRIPTION

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 20th Street becomes the focal point for performances encompassing patriotic songs, Broadway standards, movie themes, and folk music.

The show converts into a spectacular fireworks show at 9:30pm that explodes over the ocean in a burst of colors and patterns!

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.

Comment on Facebook Sandstock-A Tribute ...

Y’all got any events left on the schedule? 😂

I am planning a trip - are all events cancelled for the summer? Thanks

Where there be Live! On Atlantic this year? We will still come but I need to know if I should be looking into reserving boat cruises etc for activities

Bryan Nethery👀

Coming june 21 to 28 Will there be any thing to do

Terrible. No music, fireworks, etc. Going to be a less than lively summer.

Everything's cancelled. Events. Concerts. Everything. If it's not the "virus", it'll be the "protests" closing everything down.

Yes every event is cancelled. No music, no street performers, no circus, no concerts, and no 4th of July. Sit in your room bored out of your mind

We should tell the governor to pack sand

Don't come here. They are cancelling anything that would be fun this summer.

People will just vacation elsewhere so they can go to events and our economy will suffer.

Whoever is making these decisions are jumping the gun. Why is it that when I was at the beach today, hundreds of people there, but we can’t have hundreds of people for these events. You have let panic make your decisions for you!

😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

So if you are one group can you have one umbrella?

I would just like clarification on what other activities are prohibited in a picnic setting. I would say board games and card playing shouldn't be done either since you can't sit 6 ft apart, correct?

Stay home Stay safe

Ron Lussier

No thank you! Everyone else enjoy and be safe! <3

“Spread the word”? They spelled virus wrong

I get that they are trying to control groups and distance... my ?... what does speakers snd coolershsve to do with it?

Ok just go out and have fun... screw Northam.... he’s afraid of the large group of ppl.... lol If u get the virus u asked for it and go to ur doctor... simple!!

Wtf does listening to music have to do with slowing the spread?

Open the state parks... I have reservations at the landing in my rv...!!!

Does this mean LOA is happening ?

Is the virus caused by umbrellas and tents now?

Good for you guys. I know I live by Destin and Panama City and Orange Beach. It’s packed but they also are using distancing on the beaches.

Just wondering why no coverings.. I mean.. ?

Do you anticipate Sandstock to happen or be canceled?

If the governor does not open up the beaches not many of the motels and hotels are going to be able to make it through all of last fall and winter and then not have any spring and summer business and then have to go through another fall and winter they will not survive..

When will u know if sandstock been canceled or not

Unfortunate but understanding... we look forward to seeing you next year! Thanks for the update...

Not rescheduled in October?

Robert Hatley

Is there any chance of having this in the fall?

A little RACE FUEL WOULD Clear the AIR

Is the order into May as well? I thought it was lifted the end of April
