No amount of torrential downpours and muddy grounds could keep nearly 130,000 people away from SunFest this year. The four day festival kept on despite the storms, waves of heat, and mild setbacks throughout the weekend. 

This year’s lineup truly offered something for everyone.  The likes of OneRepublic, G Eazy, Diplo, and Keith Urban headlined the festival, with performances from Stick Figure, Bebe Rexha, Anthony Russo and Earth, Wind & Fire sprinkled between. The rain and mud didn’t scare many away, as the grounds were scattered in people wearing ponchos and rain boots, not letting the weather get them down. 

Booze, endless food options, and free coffee shots from Dunkin’ kept the party going during the downpours. The weather however, did make for some frustrating times. When sets resumed, artists scheduled to play at different times picked up and played what they could, calling for unplanned set clashes. And, those who braved Sunday’s storms missed a performance from Tears for Fears, who cancelled with no warning. Keith Urban, day 4’s headliner, was also a whopping 2 hours late from being unable to land in West Palm Beach. Luckily, the country artist delivered an unforgettable set that was followed by the always impressive firework show. 

Thursday’s headliners, OneRepublic, performed a set full of their greatest hits and shouted out to Florida and West Palm specifically during “Good Life.” Despite there being, you guessed it, a rain shower during their set, fans stuck around and sang along the entire night. “Apologize,” “Counting Stars,” and “All the Right Moves” were just some of the songs fans got to hear Thursday night.

Bebe Rexha drew in a large crowd to the Tire Kingdom stage and performed a stellar set. Opening with “Me, Myself, & I,” Rexha drew the crowd in immediately. Playing old and new, it was obvious that she was performing too early on in the day and deserved a later set time – and to be on the main stage. Just when we thought her set couldn’t get any better, she invited a young fan on stage to sing “Knees” with her. Closing her set with her latest hit, “Last Hurrah,” Bebe left the massive crowd wanting more. 

Ludacris drew one of the biggest daytime crowds at the main stage the entire weekend, performing many of his hits. Hyping the crowd up over and over again, exclaiming that Florida knows how to party, Luda clearly has performing down to a science. Fans got to hear “Area Code,” “Pimpin’ All Over the World,” and “Welcome to Atlanta,” amongst many more.

Headliners G Eazy and Diplo both brought the production to SunFest. Sparklers, confetti, and pyro are just some of the surprises both acts brought to the festival. G Eazy’s energy packed set made for an incredible Friday night, while Diplo’s Saturday night headlining spot offered a party in and of itself. Drinks and joints in hand, fans jumped and sang along to the EDM set harder than ever before. A party foul happened early on, as streamers went off and got stuck on the stage, thus ruining the pyro that the DJ had in store the rest of the set.

SunFest is truly a festival for everyone, and it’s affordable with a lot to offer. Year after year it impresses us, making us come back for more. We can’t wait to do it all over again in 2020!
