If you love nothing more than being in a crowd, dancing to world class music at a music festival that has a great vibe, it’s well worth planning to attend the ever popular Chartway Federal Credit Union American Music Festival. Especially if you live close to Virginia Beach or are planning an upcoming trip to Virginia Beach.
It is held in Virginia Beach:
The popular music festival is held in the scenic, picturesque city of Virginia Beach. So if you like the idea of attending a music festival next to the sea, it’s well worth checking out the American Music Festival.
It is traditionally held on every Labor Day weekend:
The music festival is held at the same time of year every year and is held on Labor Day weekend. So if you don’t live in Virginia Beach or within a convenient stone’s throw of Virginia Beach, you may want to go to the effort of planning a week long trip or a weekend away to attend the festival.
It draws a wide variety of popular international acts:
If you want to get to listen and dance to highly regarded international acts from the four corners of the globe, you can’t go wrong attending the American Music Festival as it always signs a long list of famous acts. Some examples of past acts have included The Beach Boys, Sheryl Crowe, Journey, ZZ Top, country music sensation Willie Nelson and Boys II Men. So no matter what genre of music you prefer, you won’t have any trouble finding a few acts that you really want to listen to, during the festival.
It’s main stage offers phenomenal beach views:
While the American Music Festival offers not one but four stages, the 5th Street stage is the main stage where the festival’s headliners perform and boasts insane waterfront views as it’s actually built on Virginia Beach itself. The other stages which you may want to visit are located at 17th Street Park, 24th Street Park and 31st Street Park. To avoid missing your favorite acts, it’s a great idea to take a look at the line ups at each stage ahead of time, in order to come up with a schedule that will allow you to see all of your favorite performers live on stage.
It still took place in 2020:
The music festival was not cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid19 pandemic which took the world by storm, instead the organizers of the iconic event which had been held for 27 years decided to offer the festival online, instead. In order to give fans of the festival something to look forward to.
It is sponsored by the council as well as local businesses:
Some of the recent sponsors of the event include the City of Virginia Beach, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, the Virginia Lottery and the principle sponsor Chartway Federal Credit Union.
So if you love nothing more than dancing in a crowd to international acts and domestic music acts, it’s well worth planning to attend the American Music Festival next year.
