Friends of the Bandshell Summer Concert Series Starts May 26th

Friends of the Bandshell Concerts

Welcome to the world’s most famous bandshell, located in Oceanfront Park in Daytona Beach, Florida. This iconic, historic amphitheater was built back in 1936 out of natural coquina rock, and seats up to 4,500 guests. Open air concerts, group activities, outdoor weddings, and other events are all hosted at this awesome venue throughout the year. Summer is a great time to be visiting Daytona Beach, as the Friends of the Bandshell Summer Concert Series will be starting back up on May 26th, and runs through September 29th.

Friends of the Bandshell, Inc. was formed in 1966 as a non-profit organization to restore and rejuvenate this wonderful Daytona Beach jewel. They’ve brought back dozens of outstanding artists with free concerts for visiting tourists and local residents. Their goal is to make the Bandshell a cultural force that will stimulate and educate the community. Over the years, musical styles have included everything from Big Band to Blues, and many genres in between.

Free summer entertainment includes tribute band concerts, followed by fireworks on Saturday nights. Come enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean, and the great music being performed. The series has become a local favorite, and attracts many visitors to the area. For more event details and to browse the full schedule, please visit the official Friends of the Bandshell website for more information. Parking is available at the Ocean Center Garage, or at surface lots. Entering the Bandshell through the Ocean Walk Village from A1A, or the overpass from the parking garage, makes it easy. You won’t want to miss all of the great, entertaining, summer action!
