Founded by local entrepreneur Allen Sanford and business partner Rob Lissner, BeachLife made its debut in May with 40 musical acts over three days. The festival attracted about 12,000 people each day to an 8.6-acre plot of seaside land that included three stages and a 50-seat pop-up restaurant by the main stage where three renowned chefs cooked meals inspired by the music.

More artists, as well as the lineup of chefs, are expected to be announced in January.
