Road Map To The Rhythm: Where To Stay And How To Play For SunFest 2024

With SunFest 2024 just around the corner on May 3–5, organizers are pulling out all the stops to ensure fans have a seamless journey to the festival grounds. From the sleek speed of a Brightline train to the classic comfort of pre-paid parking or the charm of a water taxi, there are plentiful options to transport eager attendees to the heart of the festival action at the waterfront.

“Every year there is a large number of fans who attend SunFest who aren’t from West Palm Beach,” said Dianna Craven, SunFest Executive Director. “In 2023, nearly 40% of SunFest guests traveled from outside Palm Beach County, with patrons from 47 states and 26 countries around the world. We want travel to be easy, and we want SunFest fans to have a good experience in Downtown West Palm by offering ideal places to stay and safe transportation going to and from the waterfront.”

HotelPlanner is giving patrons an easy way to search for accommodations. With the click of a button on SunFest’s website,, visitors can search for the hotel that best suits their needs, sorted by proximity to SunFest.

“SunFest fans deserve an adventure in the Palm Beaches,” said Craven. “As we mark our monumental 40th anniversary, our commitment to our festivalgoers is stronger than ever. We’re thrilled to have partners like Brightline and HotelPlanner on board, guaranteeing convenient travel and stay for both locals and visitors to revel in the SunFest experience while ensuring safety and fun.”

The lineup for SunFest 2024 includes Nelly, Cole Swindell, Rebelution, Third Eye Blind, Billy Idol, Yung Gravy, The Revivalists, Elle King, Shaggy, Dashboard Confessional, Dylan Scott, and many more! The SunFest 2024 experience will also include the Creative Arts Village, Floating Cocktail Barge, VIP Culinary Experiences, and the Sandbar Community Stage powered by the F-150 Lighting.
