Sandstock – A Tribute To Rock & Roll is a beach-inspired music festival at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront June 26-28. National and regional tribute artists cover songs from some of the greatest rockers in history. Art installations on the Beach and Boardwalk, including an interactive chalk mural as well as music workshops round out the schedule. All Sandstock performances are free and everyone is welcome.

This year’s lineup features The Wildflowers who memorialize the late, great storyteller Tom Petty. Also rocking the Beach will be Bruce In The USA (Bruce Springsteen tribute) Satisfaction (Rolling Stones tribute), 84 (Van Halen tribute), Shoot To Thrill (AC/DC tribute) and Tuesday’s Gone (Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute). The complete schedule is listed below. Sing along to your favorite tunes of the greatest decades in rock with your toes in the sand on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront! All tribute concert performances are held on the Hippy Dippy Stage - built right on the sand at 24th Street.

Sandstock also features an educational music component sponsored by School of Rock. 24th Street Park comes alive on Saturday afternoon as aspiring musicians perform on the Flower Power Stage in Sandstock Village. In addition to performing, School of Rock will be providing hands-on educational activities. School of Rock staff will provide instruction on real instruments as well as leading musical games to learn concepts in a fun way. Guests can also register for a free class at School of Rock to continue their learning after the event. Pop Up interactive art activities throughout the event complete the “jam” packed schedule.

The festival features a fantastic food and beverage menu. Beer and wine as well as non-alcoholic beverages including smoothies and soft drinks complement great festival food served from vendors on the beach.

Proceeds support the Virginia Legends Walk.
