All performances take place along the oceanfront at the 5th Street Main Stage and at 17th Street Park, 24th Street Park and 31st Street Park stages.

The 5th Street Stage is built on the beach offering a special waterfront view. In addition to fantastic music, guests enjoy the surf with toes in the sand under the stars. Food and beverage vendors to satisfy every appetite are located throughout the event and the Virginia Beach oceanfront is home to dozens of world-class restaurants. Music-themed exhibitors and retail vendors bring the entire oceanfront alive with excitement.

Along with the 3-mile boardwalk, Virginia Beach is home to exciting attractions and activities including Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center and some of the most scenic holes of golf on the East Coast.
