We’ve been looking over the schedule of events for the summer of 2022 and Wow! There is so much happening that we can’t begin to list everything. 

Something that really stood out, though, are the ten outdoor music shows at Roanoke Island Festival Park this summer. Brought to the Outer Banks by VusicOBX there are  national touring bands and there are some big names in the mix. We may end up calling the Summer of 2022 the Summer of Music.

In particular, look for three shows in three days,July 12-14. VusicObx isn’t calling it a festival, but comes really close to the definition. Headliners are Whiskey Myers Dirty Heads, and Umphrey's McGee.

The shows are all billed as family friendly--and that's what Brindley Beach Vacatons and the Outer Banks is all about--a place for the whole family to enjoy time together.
