Music Festivals

SunFest 2013 Announces Lineup, With Smashing Pumpkins, Train, and Kendrick Lamar

The sun is setting on the Atlantic, and you're sitting on a mound of sand smoking a spliff. The breeze is soft, and the expressions of your favorite and not-so-favorite musicians light up with the sunset. All of that, and you don't have to camp out in the cold and pee in a Porta Potty; you can drive home tonight! This is what festival heaven feels like!

For 31 SunFests, West Palm Beach has gotten jiggy with memorably awesome music and art, all at the edge of the ocean. This year, from May 1 to 5, the fairly gigantic festival is bringing some really impressive names of today's pop, rap, and country and yesteryear's greatest musicians. We have the full SunFest details here, from the musical acts to the days and stages on which they are performing to pricing and parking information. Click on, SunFesters.
