SunFest, South Florida’s largest music, art and waterfront festival, has added the Steve Miller Band, Slightly Stoopid, Gin Blossoms, Pennywise, Pepper, Tonic, Thriving Ivory, Candlebox, Randy Bachman, Citizen Cope, Matt Nathanson, Erin McCarley, Cold War Kids, Sly and Robbie and Bettye LaVette to the 2009 lineup.
SunFest will be held from April 29 through May 3, along one of the most scenic sections of Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach, FL. 311, James Taylor and David Cook were previously announced as headliners.
Reserved seats go on sale March 26 to the public for several of the main stage performances, including 311, James Taylor, David Cook, G. Love & Special Sauce, the Steve Miller Band, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper/Pennywise, and Gin Blossoms/Tonic. General on-sales for SunFest 2009 have already begun.
March is the month to save the most money on SunFest admission. For just over $10 a day, a March Money Saver deal courtesy of TD Bank — five days for $54 — is 50 percent off daily gate admission. By comparison, the average cost of a single concert at a local venue hovers around $56, according to SunFest organizers. Tickets are on sale only at participating TD Bank locations in Palm Beach County through 5 p.m. on March 31.
“We know people are looking for affordable ways to enjoy themselves,” said Paul Jamieson, executive director of SunFest, in a statement. “SunFest offers five days of freedom from the daily routine of life. There isn’t a better deal to be had in the music scene. The best deals are the ones people can get early and for multiple days.”
