SunFest music festival, where premier music meets the waterfront of West Palm Beach, will take place on May 3-6. The event will be headlined by Logic, Billy Idol, Pitbull and many more fan-favorite performers.

This year’s lineup will feature 50 bands throughout the weekend-long affair. Tickets are currently on sale starting at $75 for a four-day pass, $59 for a two-day pass and $37 for a single day at the festival. Ticket prices will only continue to rise as the event approaches.

“SunFest will have amazing artists, many that I’ve always wanted to see,” said Erica Migoya, sophomore. “It also helps that the tickets are so inexpensive if you buy them early.”

In between sets, attendees can enjoy food, the Art District, shopping and many other attractions. They can also take part in the TGI5K run through West Palm, ending at the heart of the music festival upon crossing the finish line.

“SunFest was the best time I have ever had,” said Dryden Brous, sophomore. “When Stick Figure performed last year, they blasted the crowd with their sticky notes.”

To begin the festivities, Thursday’s headliners include Logic, Billy Idol and popular disc jockey, Girl Talk. The performers over the next couple of days will consist of Zelda, Incubus, Rae Sremmund and Nick Jonas. On the final day, the festival will close with Miami native, Pitbull, alongside Sublime with Rome and PartyNextDoor.

“From what my friends have told me about last year’s SunFest, it was a blast,” said Danielle Assini, sophomore. “After looking at the lineup for this year, I can’t wait to join my friends in the fun.”

The bands will begin to hit the stage as soon as 5 p.m. on the first two days of the festival while Saturday and Sunday will see an earlier start time of noon. Each day, music fans alike will come together to make West Palm the trendiest place to be in early May.
