The list of entertainment and activity options in Daytona Beach runs as deep and wide as our 23 miles of beaches. From jumping on jet skis and exploring the waterways to uncovering the history that shaped the area, there’s no limit to the possibilities for family fun in Daytona Beach. One of the best ways to cap off a fun day of splashing around at the beach or exploring the city’s shopping scene is to groove to live music at the Daytona Beach Bandshell.
The iconic amphitheater, which is located right on the oceanfront off of the Daytona Beach Boardwalk, offers a series of concerts from May through September. This summer concert series presents shows on Friday and Saturday nights from May 24 through late September from 7:15 to 9:45 p.m. If you want to take the night to the next level, you can get special VIP seating for the Friday night concerts in advance through Ticketmaster and The Peabody Box Office for $10 plus applicable fees or at The Bandshell’s Box Office the night of the event. VIP seating for the Saturday night concerts may be purchased for $10 at The Bandshell’s main entrance only for the Saturday night series.
This year, the lineup is better than ever and features crowd favorites like Bruce Springsteen tribute band “The Boss Project” and Journey tribute band “Never Stop Believin'.” You won’t be able to resist joining in the final verses of the songs from the Jimmy Buffett tribute band “Caribbean Chillers,” nor from Tom Petty tribute band “The Wildflowers.” And the Guns N’ Roses tribute band “Nightrain” is guaranteed to rock the house.

The tribute acts’ offerings span a wide range of generations, from a Simon & Garfunkel tribute band to covers of David Bowie and Garth Brooks — so guests of all ages are sure to have a blast at the Bandshell in 2019. And, to cap off a truly fun event, be sure to stick around for the fireworks show at the conclusion of each Saturday concert.
