Fresh Local Artists

This year, SunFest is showcasing Fresh Local Artists (FLA) at the waterfront music festival. In partnership with 1909, a nonprofit in West Palm Beach dedicated to the holistic growth of creators through member access to one-of-a-kind, collaborative community, workspace, accelerator programs and mentorships, the two organizations will offer local bands the opportunity to audition for SunFest 2023. Several local artists will have the chance to perform during the three-day festival and a few lucky artists could open for headline entertainers.
