Your Guide to Summer Concerts in the OBX

Nothing says Summer like outdoor concerts! The OBX may be a small string of Islands, but that doesn’t stop it from drawing big name acts and even bigger crowds. Each year, VusicOBX hosts and organizes a Summer concert series that brings vacationers and locals alike together for awesome nights of food, drinks, fun and most importantly, great music!  

This year, Roanoke Island Festival Park will host a great lineup of notable bands and artists, and Kitty Hawk Kites and Vusic OBX are partnering to bring you the allnew “FlyBy Lane” to elevate your access to a great summer concert experience. By spending $25 or more in our Nags Head, Whalebone, or Manteo stores and letting your cashier know, you’ll receive a special pass which you can effectively use to bypass long wait times for entry, get a great spot in the crowd and start enjoying the good tunes faster! This year’s lineup is stacked! Check out what’s playing over in Manteo this Summer and add a little melody to your next vacation!

GOD ONLY KNOWS it’s gonna be a great night of nostalgic tunes from the Beach Boys coming to the best beach! Featuring John Stamos of Full House fame, this is sure to be a night of GOOD VIBRATIONS! 

Michael Franti and crew is back in the OBX by popular demand for the #TOGETHERNESSTOUR2024! Enjoy the eclectic vibes that fuse reggae, pop, funk, jazz, rock and hip hop from Franti and his band.
