Audacy Beach Festival

Audacy Beach Festival

Ali Zimmerman, News Editor '26

If you’re a lover of music looking for something to do the weekend of December 3 and 4, you’re in luck! For the second year in a row, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is bringing one of the greatest music festivals ever to the United States.

This two-day beach festival has many large acts in the lineup this December including YUNGBLUD, Phoenix, Jack White, Muse, and Jimmy Eat World on day one, and Machine Gun Kelly, The 1975, Waterparks, and GAYLE on day two. Last years’ lineup was just as strong with acts including Glass Animals, The Lumineers, Twenty-One Pilots, Bastille, AJR, Walk the Moon, Lil Nas X, and Weezer. This music festival will take place on the beach.

You’re allowed a towel to sit on, and drinks and food will be provided. As of the beginning of November, tickets are still readily available, starting at $81 for general admission. VIP tickets include a lounge, special air-conditioned bathrooms, and VIP drinks. Those tickets start at $300.

If it’s too late notice for you to suddenly go to Florida, no worries! This festival will be back again next year, with just as strong of a lineup as the past two. I hope you decide to check it out, whether this year or in the coming years.
