Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, a few things have changed at the Daytona Beach Bandshell for the 2020 Season:

The Friday night concerts sponsored by the City of Daytona Beach continue to be postponed until further notice. All tickets purchased in advance for the Friday night concerts are available for a refund directly from the point of purchase. For information on Saturday night events hosted by Friends of the Bandshell, please visit friendsofthebandshell.org or call 386-253-0254.

VIP seating and General Admission are now assigned seating with a ticket required for entry. All tickets must be purchased in groups of two. General admission is now $2 and includes a chair that will be provided. VIP tickets are $10 for seating in an access-controlled section and includes a chair that will be provided. Please review our Social Distancing Protocols for more details.

Due to limited availability, patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets to Saturday night shows in advance on Ticketmaster.com. Tickets are also available for purchase in person on the day of the show at the Bandshell Box Office from 12 p.m. – 8 p.m. For ticket inquiries, please email PeabodyBoxOffice@CODB.us



For the safety and comfort of the patrons attending Bandshell events: 

Please review our Social Distancing Protocols before arriving to the Bandshell concerts.

  • Guests are required to wear face coverings when in the bandshell.
  • Guests are required to complete a COVID-19 screening questionnaire before entering the bandshell.
  • Guests are required to have their temperature checked before entering the bandshell. Persons with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or greater will not be able to enter the bandshell.
  • Contact-less payments and “no touch” purchases will be made available to patrons in the bandshell.
  • Guests can no longer bring a personal chair.
  • All VIP and reserved seats must be purchased in groups of two.
    • Social distancing will be implemented in the VIP and reserved seating section by arranging chairs in groups of two, followed by two empty seats.


Outside food is permitted at the Daytona Beach Bandshell. Patrons are able to bring in one clear bottle of water per person. All other beverages are not permitted and will be asked to be removed upon entry.


The Bandshell area is licensed by the State of Florida to allow sale and onsite consumption of alcohol beverages. As a licensee, the City has the legal obligation to control  legal distribution and consumption of alcohol at the licensed premise. 

Adult beverages are available for purchase. The Bandshell signature drink, the “Bandshell Breeze” is available as well as Budweiser products that include Budweiser, Bud Light, Landshark, and Michelob Ultra.


Second hand cigarette smoke and vape vapor are known health hazards. The density of people in a Bandshell performance creates a situation where non-smokers cannot escape a hazardous substance. Persons wishing to smoke or vape may go outside the Bandshell audience area and smoke or vape without imposing on others. 


Public safety requires avoidance of glass. The concerts occur in mostly warm weather. Flying glass or broken glass poses a hazard to people with minimal shoes (Flip Flops, etc.) or people in close proximity to whatever may cause glass to "fly" or break.


The audience space is compact. Coolers (of any size) create a logistic difficulty to allow people (not using a cooler) to sit comfortably and walk safely. Additionally, screening coolers to make sure they do not contain alcohol or glass containers create a significant problem to allowing a crowd of 3-5k to quickly enter and get to their free seat. 


In addition to the issue with the coolers listed above, both coolers and back packs may be used to transport and conceal weapons. The "no cooler" and "no back pack" policy allows an additional layer of control to keep the crowd and the venue safe.
