Local Entertainment

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Immerse yourself in a tribute to rock and roll at this annual, beach-inspired Woodstock festival.

Sandstock will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the original Woodstock Music and Art Festival.

Original Woodstock rockers like Jimi Hendrix, The Who and Santana will be honored with tribute performances by bands like Kiss The Sky, Bargain and Soul Sacrifice.  

New this year is an educational music component sponsored by School of Rock at the 24th Street Park. In addition, there will be an interactive visual art project. 

“What alot of folks don’t know is that Woodstock was a music and arts festival, so we’re going to include some art components. One of the really neat things is an interactive art mural that our guests can help us complete over the weekend,” said Sandstock organizer, Domenick Fini.
