Virginia Beach Country Music Festival 2023 — official lineup and dates
Listening to country music on the beach just got better — thanks to 2023’s Beach It Country Music Festival. The seaside event takes place on June 23, 24, and 25, 2023 in Virginia Beach, with the mainstage situated on the sand.

How to get tickets to the ‘Beach It’ country music festival
Passes are now on sale for Beach It, with three tiers of tickets available to future attendees. The 3-Day GA pass costs $249 plus applicable fees — the sooner the ticket is purchased, the less expensive, as there are different “waves” of passes available. The second wave of GA costs $269 and the third wave costs $299.
A 3-Day VIP Pass is $899 plus fees, which offers a VIP entrance, an exclusive viewing section, and complimentary beverage service with a premium selection of beer, wine, spirits, and non-alcoholic beverages. There’s a 3-Day VIP Reserved Pass for $1,149 plus fees, with an even smaller, exclusive VIP viewing area.
Children 6 years old and under are free in general admission. According to Beach It’s website, wristbands will be shipped around 4 weeks before the festival.
This is the first Beach It Country Music Festival in Virginia Beach
This is the first time the Beach It Country Music Festival will take place at Virginia Beach. However, this isn’t the only seaside festival for 2023, as New Jersey hosts Sea.Hear.Now in Asbury Park and the Adjacent Music Festival in Atlantic City. Beach It, however, is predominantly country music, as noted by one performer.
“It’ll be cool to look out at a crowd of a lot of my hometown people and just get to experience the growth that I’ve had over the past two years, right back at home,” Alana Springsteen said during a News 3 interview with Angela Bohon. “It’s very full-circle.”
Similar to New York City’s Governors Ball, Beach It is a cashless festival, meaning attendees can purchase food, beverages, and merchandise via the cashless program on their wristband, credit cards, debit cards, or Apple Pay/Google Pay.
