Event: SunFest 2017
Where: Downtown West Palm Beach
When: May 3 – 7
If you’re in search of a family-friendly event with a wide range of music genres, SunFest is the music festival for you! Held annually in Downtown West Palm Beach, right where the music meets the water along the Intracoastal Waterway, the festival draws artists with both local and national acclaim.
Within the span of five days, you’ll find yourself exposed to Rock, Electronic, Hip-Hop, Indie, and Reggae music. SunFest’s three stages will host both talents you’d recognize and talents you’ve been dying to discover. You can jam out to Snoop Dogg’s laid back raps or tap your feet to the drums of X Ambassadors. You can also tune into local South Florida bands such as Magic City Hippies, an indie-funk band based in Miami or Sunghosts, a self-described sun-drenched garage rock band hailing from Kendall.
After five days of music, sunbathing, and art, Sunfest will host a Fireworks show on Sunday —weather permitting— at 9pm to wrap up what could be the best festival experience of your life.
Ticket prices vary depending on your age and the number of days you wish to attend. One to five-day passes, ranging from $20 to $81, are available for adults (ages 13+) and youth (ages 6-12) for purchase online. Senior admission, ages 65 and up, is $25 but must be purchased at the gate with the show of a valid ID.
As the countdown for the event winds down, ticket prices will increase so get them as soon as possible!
