American Music Festival

1 - 3 Sep 2017
Virginia Beach, Virginia

A loud, proud and warm-hearted event, the American Music Festival is one of Virginia Beach's best attended and highly anticipated weekenders.

  • When? 1 - 3 September 2017
  • Where? Virginia Beach
  • Price: Many of the concerts are completely free but VIP tickets are available.

If you're fairly certain that nobody comes close to beating your mad air guitar skillz then we're expecting to see you at Virginia Beach's American Music Festival. Running for over 20 years, this feel good celebration attracts thousands of music lovers every year. 

Previous years have seen the likes of UB40 and Culture Club grace the stages (there are five) and perform timeless American greats as well as new material. There are also plenty of beer and food tents serving up a range of traditional American dishes and drinks. Some of the stages are free to watch while others are payable - you can buy single or multiple entry tickets. If you feel like splashing out then the VIP option includes drinks, hors d’oeuvres, prime main stage viewing and more. 

Tickets are available to pre-book or buy on the day. The event also coincides with the Virginia Beach's half marathon and the weekender is one of city-wide celebration, family fun and packed crowds. So while you might not have much space to swing your air guitar, you'll still get to enjoy the celebratory atmosphere while listening to some musical greats.

  • Get there: Fly to Virginia Beach Airport and then take a taxi to 17th Street Park where many of the events take place.
  • Stay: Book accommodation on the waterfront for the perfect relaxation spot in your down time.
