As we like to say – bring your beach chairs, bring your friends – which also extends to beach blankets, family and co-workers! Your four-legged family members are welcome along the promenade, but not in the sand. For a complete list of Beach Rules and Regulations, please visit the City of Fort Lauderdale’s website
There are a number of public parking lots and garages located a few blocks from the Fort Lauderdale Beach Hub, which offer meter, pay-by-phone or flat rate options. Visit the City of Fort Lauderdale’s website to view the most up to date parking information and rates.
Food and Drinks are welcome, however alcoholic beverages and glass bottles are prohibited. You may also wish to consider taking advantage of the new Food & Beverage Service to you directly on the sand from approved food & beverage providers. We simply request, you please be respectful of our beaches and dispose of trash in provided receptacles.

First, thanks for attending. If we didn’t tell you that night – we loved having you out to enjoy live music on Fort Lauderdale Beach, and hope to see you again. We want to see your smiling faces as quickly as possible too, so photos from Friday night are typically posted on Monday. You can find them classified in albums per show on our Facebook Page, and bundled on our website via a live feed under the link Photos.  Once you find them please feel free to share, and invite your friends to join you next time by using the hashtag #MeetMeAtTheHub
Friday Night Sound Waves received major funding from the Beach Business Improvement District (BID) in order to provide this FREE Live Music series for our local residents and global visitors. Created in 2007, the BID is funded by commercial properties along A1A, with a primary focus to promote the beach as a premier destination through their official destination website, other marketing and funding special events. We also have dozens of sponsors and partners we have to thank for jumping on the Sound Waves Bandwagon by investing in our community and efforts to bring cultural experiences to our local and visiting guests each week.
While safety is always our foremost concern, and no one likes to get wet, you know what they say about South Florida, “If you don’t like the weather – wait 5 minutes”, and so yes, therefore we are a rain or shine event. Plus – it’s always beautiful on the beach, and we must admit, Mother Nature has been very kind to us. If it looks gloomy by you and you’re not certain you want to make the drive over, visit our Facebook Page for updates, which we typically post around the 5 o’clock hour. Or just come on down. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to seek cover – and it’s Friday Night – you should be out!
If your company has interest in supporting the Arts and the Fort Lauderdale community while promoting your business or brand, we would most certainly love to grab a beach chair and sit down to talk with you.
