Making it's return in 2018, and taking place every Friday night from 6:00pm - 9:00pm at “The Hub” on Fort Lauderdale Beach at Las Olas Boulevard and A1A, the 34-week Friday Night Sound Waves live music series is free to the public and features a diverse mix of Acoustic Americana, Jazz, Blues, Country, Latin Fusion, Motown, Top 40, Reggae, World and Classic Rock.

Attendees are encouraged to slide off their shoes and slip into the weekend, while kicking back on the sand with family and friends, to take in the ocean breeze and spectacular sights and sounds as a lead into their weekend. Interactive experiences on select dates provide local artists, entertainers and non-profit organizations the opportunity to connect with the community through the common language of music, art, entertainment and fun.
