Riptide Music Festival Tickets
Riptide Music Festival TicketsThe Riptide Music Festival is a weekend-long event that celebrates the best of alternative and classic music. The eclectic range of musical genres featured at Riptide includes rock, pop, hip-hop, R&B, electronic and punk. The featured musical artists span multiple generations, from the '60s until today.
Ride the WaveThe Riptide Music Festival began as one of the major musical events of the Fort Lauderdale, FL, area. As opposed to many other music festivals, Riptide takes place during the late fall season. The inaugural Riptide Music Festival was held on December 3rd and 4th of 2016 with a lineup that included The B-52s, The Struts, Good Charlotte and Earth, Wind and Fire. After the success of the first two events, the festival expanded to cover the full three-day weekend in 2018. The theme of the festival is intimately connected to its beachfront location, where most of the concerts and events take place. Fans are encouraged to bring beach blankets, towels and low-rise chairs, but umbrellas, tents or large chairs are prohibited. Fans can also rent out a cabana for up to 10 people ahead of time. Access to the ocean, however, is completely restricted on the festival grounds.
