Beach Music Weekend 2023

Featuring bands on the beach for a jam-packed blast from the past!

Compiled by Chris Murphy

On May 12-13, 2023, from 7:30PM-10PM, Beach Music Weekend features bands on the beach with dancing under the stars for a jam-packed blast from the past! The top Beach Music bands from up and down the East Coast descend on the Virginia Beach oceanfront in a nostalgic salute to the “good old days” of hot tunes and cool times.

A two-day series of ticketed concerts is presented on a stage built right on the beach at 30th Street. Evening concerts on Friday give way to a full day of entertainment on Saturday.

The General Admission weekend pass will be available in advance of the festival.

The festival atmosphere is enhanced with a variety of food trucks throughout the weekend. Boardwalk sponsors and vendors overlook the beach, luring visitors from the boardwalk into the fun and sun at Beach Music Weekend.
