WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- We are about one week away from music, fireworks and fun in downtown West Palm Beach.

But heads up for drivers: roads are closing in that area started at 9 a.m. on Wednesday in preparation for SunFest. The organizers need several days to be able to set up tents, an arts district, stages and other facilities on the site.

The four-day music festival runs from Thursday, May 2 through Sunday, May 5.

The blocked off roads in downtown starts at Banyan Boulevard on the north end and goes all the way south to Lakeview Avenue.

Olive Avenue will be clear for traffic but some of those streets leading up to SunFest like Datura, Fern and Evernia will have a lot of congestion.

The lineup of 50 bands includes Keith Urban, Earth Wind and Fire, Tears for Fears, The B-52s, and OneRepublic.

A quick reminder: if you want to save a few bucks, early bird ticket prices will end in a few days on April 27 and April 28. Kids 5 years old and under get in for free.
