New this year:
The Waterfront Hospitality area is all-new for the 2019 festival. The upgrade area renamed The Cove is located adjacent to the Ford Stage along the water. The new look and feel offers enhanced seating and lounge areas and a signature Boho Dome & Bar, and two additional private bar areas. Exclusive food options will be available for purchase and celebrity chefs will be curating daily specials. The notable chefs include Ralph Pagano of Naked Taco of Miami (Thursday), and Hedy Goldsmith of Ad Lib in Miami (Sunday). Other amenities include premier viewing of the Ford Stage, two complimentary drinks, unlimited water and soda, private air-conditioned restrooms, and charging station. Cove tickets are available for daily purchase and vary in cost by day from $125-$145. “The new look and feel makes this the perfect party destination,” said Jamieson. “We expect people to spend the day there or use it as a home base to gather with friends between shows. This year’s revamping of this area makes The Cove the best place to enjoy the festival with VIP amenities and a chic ambiance.”
Also new this year is the offering of a small number of Silver Passes. This VIP experience is being added as the festival sees more interest in all-inclusive upgrade experiences. The program stems from the popularity of the festival’s Gold Pass that sells out based on a wait list. The Silver Pass is a VIP access pass that can be purchased daily or for all four days. It provides all the SunFest VIP amenities including access to The Cove, access to the reserved viewing area called The Stand for all shows at all stages, Club SunFest’s private party area at the Tire Kingdom Stage, the JetBlue Lounge at the JetBlue Stage and access to upgraded air-conditioned bathrooms throughout the site. Quantities are limited. $299 for a Thursday or Friday, and $399 for a Saturday or Sunday pass, and the 4-Day Silver Pass is $1,249 per person.
