The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator

The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator has found another host of shows over the next three days. Go check out Easy Star Allstars with Fishbone and The Skints, Seedless at a beer festival, The Supervillains at a BBQ festival, or Jason DeVore (of Authority Zero) playing acoustic one last time before heading off on tour.

SunfestFor over 30 years, the first weekend of May has brought Florida’s largest waterfront music and art festival to downtown West Palm Beach. Since it’s founding in 1982, SunFest has attracted over 175,000 festival-goers each year for the music, art, food, family activities, and of course the beautiful weather and scenery. The festival is situated on Florida’s intracoastal Waterway in the heart of downtown and the West Palm Beach Arts and Entertainment District.

Being in the 33rd consecutive year has not slowed down the SunFest group as they have found a way to bring together another impressive lineup. “We know fans have been waiting for this,” said SunFest Executive Director Paul Jamieson. “We believe they will agree it’s been worth the wait. We have some of the hottest acts in music today and many of the most sought after performers in the music festival industry.” Even if you missed Lenny Kravitz and Sammy Hagar the last two days, there are still plenty more bands to see this weekend. 311 headlines Friday night after The Hip Abduction and Morning Fatty. SOJA and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley will perform in the afternoon before Stone Temple Pilots closes up Saturday night. And then Sunday will be busy with the Pixies, Iration, Matisyahu, Boston, AWOLNATION, and Fall Out Boy.

In between all the music, make sure to walk around and soak in everything SunFest has to offer this year. The Juried Fine Art & Craft Show will feature jewelry, paintings, pottery and ceramics, photography, sculpture, wood, and more arts and crafts from more than 150 artists nationwide. Coincidentally, the KidZone is open the same times as the The Juried Fine Art & Craft Show (see hours HERE)… So while Mom and Dad are out browsing, the kids can have fun too meeting the Minions from Universal Orlando Resort, or with one of the many activities like face painting, bounce houses, and playing in the sand.

Meantime, everyone else will be having a blast at one of the parties on the multiple themed Floating Oasis. There’s a floating oasis for everyone this year whether you want to relax on the tropical oasis and tiki lounge, sipping Captain Morgan drinks, watch the NFL Draft, NBA Playoffs, Kentucky Derby, or just dance on the unofficial “party barge.” And then to cap off the 5-day event, grab the family and a blanket for the big Fireworks Show which closes the festival on Sunday at 9pm.

Remember to come by here every single Thursday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist & view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
