I've written about The Sunbanks music festivals before, but I need to make sure you know about this event. The Sunbanks Rock Festival is coming September 14-17, 2023. This is a first-time event for the Sunbanks Resort and ticket demand is high. There will be an show in the Cantina on Thursday night, then the music moves to the big outdoor stage Friday-Sunday. For lack of a better term all the acts are tribute bands, and all the acts are first class players. There will be music, food, and merch.

One thing to remember is this is a 21 and older event. Everyone will be carded before the can enter the resort.
