For 14 years, the Virginia Beach Funk Fest Beach Party has brought the funk to the Oceanfront with two days of electrifying music, delectable food, and a diverse array of vendors.

The heartbeat of the festival is its music, echoing across the beach at 24th Street on Friday and Saturday, August 23-24.

Rooted in R&B, jazz, gospel, and blues, funk is a genre that has left an indelible mark on the music scene. Influential artists like James Brown and George Clinton, the leader of Parliament-Funkadelic, have inspired countless musicians and played pivotal roles in the evolution of other genres such as disco and hip hop.
