The Beale Street Music Festival

One of the premiere outdoor music festivals in the south, the three-day event is held on ten big stages strung along historic Beale Street, and the $55 day ticket gets you in to see everything on that day. If you want to go big, a $649 VIP Experience ticket will get you up close and personal to all the stars.

Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band
North Little Rock, Ark., Verizon Arena
June 6, 8 p.m.
Distance from NWA: 202 miles
With his laid-back vibe, fun lyrics and catalogue of beach-loving tunes like “Margaritaville,” “Come Monday,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” and “It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere,” Jimmy Buffett has been encouraging audiences to put on their flip flops and Hawaiian shirt, slow down and live a little since the mid-1970s, basking in a hang-ten ethos that draws hordes of devoted fans — called “Parrotheads” — to his shows wherever he plays. It’s been a few years since Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band brought their traveling carnival of good times and old favorites to Central Arkansas, but they’re coming back in early June for Buffett’s “Son of a Sailor” Tour 2019. Named after Buffett’s famous 1978 album of the same name, the show promises to be almost as much fun as a trip to the Redneck Riviera for Spring Break, and the margarita-drenched tailgating outside the arena before the show is always almost as good as the concert itself. Tickets range are $29, $76 or $146. For more information, visit verizonarena.com.
