All about SunFest lineup & festival activities for this year

It’s the time of year to get ready for SunFest, the springtime soundtrack set along the palm-lined West Palm Beach waterfront. This year, the now 3-day festival is coming with a variety of performers and more-than-just-music offerings for sunseekers to reunite with friends. The music festival will take place from Friday, May 5 to Sunday, May 7. The national headliners scheduled to perform on the Ford and Ideal Nutrition stages include:

On Friday, The Chainsmokers, Flo Rida, Anabel Englund, LAYA, and PLS&TY.

On Saturday, Jack Johnson, Ziggy Marley, ALO, ARDN, Fedd The God, and The Hip Abduction.

On Sunday, The Killers, 311, Dropkick Murphys, All Time Low, Charlotte Sands, Gatlin, and Surfer Girl.

“Fan satisfaction ratings last year were the highest we have ever seen in SunFest history. We heard loud and clear that fans come to the waterfront to hear good music and reunite with old friends,” said Executive Director Paul Jamieson. “In response, we’re maximizing our entertainment budget by putting the art show, south stage, fireworks, and 5K race on hold for 2023. We are spending 15% more than last year on talent with fewer headline acts. We believe the quality overall is improved and hope that our fans agree.”

2023 SunFest lineup

SunFest is also partnering again with 1909 to highlight the Fresh Local Artists Series, which is sponsored by Florida Power & Light Company. The Fresh Local Artist Series supports homegrown talent performing at the festival. Area artists scheduled to perform at SunFest 2023 include the following performers: Allegra Miles, East Harbor, GVIN, Leave it to Us, The Nameless, Nostaljah, Prato, RazzaMoore, SoulPax, and Vibes Farm.

“There is a very vibrant local music scene teeming with talent in South Florida, and we are proud to be able to offer our neighbors the opportunity to perform at SunFest 2023,” said Jamieson. “Make time in your festival plans to check out these groups and support their efforts to create original music right here in our own backyard. SunFest has become a very unique time of year that brings people from all walks of life and all ages together in an unforgettable setting. It’s more than a music festival in a tropical paradise – it’s a place where old friends can reconnect and resurface cherished memories.”

SunFest is more than a place to see a concert. Festivities and amenities include the popular Floating Bars, SunFest’s most famous dancing spots. Captain Morgan is working on an updated atmosphere and specialty libations for these iconic SunFest venues.

There will be plenty of great eats with more than 100 items available at The Eatery which this year will be relocated to enhance its dining experience.

General admission tickets are on sale now at the lowest price and are set to increase before the festival. Current pricing starts at $70 for a 1-day pass and $130 for a 3-day pass. Kids 5 and under are FREE. Reduced-price tickets are available for youth 6-12. Tickets for youth start at $30 for a one-day ticket. For those who want to do SunFest with more style, a host of VIP options are available. Gold and Silver Pass offer the highest level of amenities with access to all our VIP areas while The Palm and The Cove allow you to escape the crowds in two different areas of the festival.
