One word that always makes people happy: free.

Four words that make many pop-rock music fans happy: the Dave Matthews Band.

Put them together and what do you get?

Yes: Matthews and the guys are set to play a free concert, The Capital One Beach Bash, at Lummus Park in Miami Beach on Dec. 28, Billboard first reported. The show kicks off the festivities a day before the Capital One Orange Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium.

Gates open at 4 p.m., but admission will be first-come, first-served, so getting there early is advised.

Bonus for Capital One cardholders: You’ll have access to a VIP lounge at the front of the stage, according to an announcement on Matthews’ official website.

Look for info and updates on Twitter @CapitalOne and the credit card company’s Facebook page.

The group will be busy, launching a 10-city arena tour Nov. 27 in Columbus, Ohio. It wraps Dec. 15 in Charlottesville, Virginia, where DMB formed in 1991.
