“AMF has had to overcome hurricanes, massive thunderstorms, heavy surf, high tides, and strong gusting winds,” organizers say. “And this year’s global COVID19 pandemic won’t stop AMF either.”

- Johnny Rzeznik of Goo Goo Dolls
- Bret Michaels
- Marc Roberge of O.A.R.
- Michael Franti

Another big event at the Oceanfront in September, the Virginia Beach Neptune Festival (scheduled for September 25-27) was canceled for the first time in its 47-year history.
