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.

Music Hall of Famers including Journey, Heart, ZZ Top, Sheryl Crow, Chicago, The Beach Boys, Hall & Oates, Willie Nelson, Charlie Daniels Band, Isaac Hayes and Four Tops as well as superstars Zac Brown Band, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt, Boys II Men, Kool & The Gang, En Vogue, George Duke, Arturo Sandoval, Spyro Gyra, and The Rippingtons have all performed at American Music Festival.     

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.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon also takes place Sunday during American Music Festival Weekend, attracting thousands of runners and walkers from around the world.
