25 Oct 2018 Festival Changes
We have some big news about what’s in store for SunFest 2018. As a patron and fan of SunFest, I wanted you to be among the first to know.
SunFest 2018 will be a four-day festival – the dates are May 3-6. Over the years, SunFest has varied the number of days of the festival so this is not entirely new. Included in this change is the addition of the JetBlue Stage opening Thursday. With all 3 stages open all 4 days we plan to continue to offer 50 acts just as we always have.
You probably want to know why. The answer is a simple one – we want to continue to offer our fans the best festival possible at the type of price they are used to. With the increasing number of festivals both nationally and in the South Florida area, our cost for entertainment has increased 132% since 2010 and yet our admission price has only increased 32%. We often get asked how we can provide the festival so cost effectively. It has not always been easy but we make adjustments as needed. This change allows us to budget approximately 20% more for 2018 musical talent over the four days.
Change is not new to SunFest. During our 35 year history, we have made changes to days, hours and offerings. We are excited about this and hope you will be too.
What does this mean for tickets?
As has been the case in the past, you will save the MOST when you buy early and buy multi-day tickets. Tickets available now through March 9 – are only $2 more per day for 1 and 2-day passes as compared and last year. Full festival passes – good for admission each day – will remain the same prices as 2017. New this year – if you wait to buy tickets on Saturday and Sunday of the festival, they will be at a higher price than tickets on the weekdays.
Our ticket model provides ample time to score the lowest admission, and remains one of the lowest priced major music festivals in the country. I encourage you to jump over to SUNFEST.COM to see ticket information and plan for your visit to SunFest 2018. Tickets are on sale now.
