WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2014) - After 32 years, the annual West Palm Beach Sunfest Music Festival is set to draw its biggest crowd yet -- and for good reason. From April 30th to May 4th, the family-friendly festival will welcome some of the biggest names in music, from Kid Rock to Robin Thicke, just steps away from this West Palm Beach, FL hotel.
More than 165,000 visitors are expected to attend this year's festival, with more than 50 musical acts taking to multiple stages over the 5-day event. The lineup for 2014 includes Ellie Goulding, Pretty Lights, The Goo Goo Dolls, Young the Giant, J. Cole, Alice In Chains, Daughtry, Doobie Brothers, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue and Blues Traveler.
Set along the waterfront of Flagler Drive, just a short walk from this hotel near CityPlace West Palm Beach, the annual festival offers more than music. A juried arts and crafts show will feature the work of more than 140 national artists showcasing jewelry, painting, photography, sculpture and pottery. The festival opens its doors early on Friday for Kids' Day, when more than 200 children with special needs can enjoy music, food, activities and gifts in an attentive environment. Throughout the festival, the Youth Park welcomes families with activities and entertainment. Closing out the festival on Sunday will be a spectacular fireworks show set to music.
Tickets to the Sunfest Music Festival start at just $30 for adults and $8 for kids. To purchase tickets in advance and learn more about the lineup of musical performances and activities, visit www.sunfest.com/.
