May 20-22, 2022 – Beach Music Cruise-In (on the beach at 30th Street) 
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 three-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 and more daytime concerts on Sunday.

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 Cruise-In.

The Beach Music Cruise-In Car Show will be held Saturday, May 21, from 10:00am-4:00pm, on the Boardwalk. Registration is from 7:00am-10:00am. Trophies will be awarded on Saturday at 3:30pm from the main stage. To register, click REGISTER YOUR CAR.

  1. The Oceanfront Inn on Atlantic at 29th Street is the hotel right on site. The tickets will probably go on sale around the middle of July. Thanks!
