For many local Virginia Beach locals, summer means backyard barbecues, lounging by the pool, or eagerly waiting for the familiar sound of the ice cream truck. And while the ice cream truck does play a pretty catchy tune, the happiness it brings usually only lasts for as long as it takes you to finish your chocolate crunch bar.
What can you do to ensure a summer filled with happiness for the whole family? One that’s worthy of being called the #bestsummerever? The answer is much simpler than you may think. All you have to do is go out and listen to live music. Yes, it really is that simple!
A recent study has shown that people who attend concerts once every two weeks lead happier lives, and that “attending a concert for just 20 minutes increased participants feelings of wellbeing by 21%.”
What’s even better news is that you don’t need to pack up and travel far this summer to get your live music fix. All you need to do is take a trip to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.
This summer Live! On Atlantic – formerly known as Beach Street USA – will transform Atlantic Avenue from 7th Street to 34th Street into an energetic and dazzling stage, showcasing hundreds of music acts of all genres including rock, jazz, country, 80’s pop, Latin, and hip-hop. Read more.
