There are plenty of reasons to visit the Myrtle Beach area this summer: the ocean, easy access to amazing shopping, dining and entertainment venues, as well as a reputation for being one of the biggest music stops for big name artists on the east coast!

This summer’s most anticipated music event is the Carolina Country Music Fest taking place on June 8th through 11th in the heart of Myrtle Beach. The East Coast’s largest outdoor country music festival features over 30 popular country artists, including Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, Gretchen Wilson, Billy Currington, Big and Rich, Montgomery Gentry, Runaway June, Dee Jay Silver, The Davisson Brothers, Drake White and the Big Fire, Zach Seabaugh, Chris Lane, Love and Theft, Luke Combs and more!

The festival takes place at the Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place, spanning 18 acres of coastal area from the boardwalk to Ocean Boulevard. Check out the Main Stage at the beach/boardwalk side of the site before visiting the second stage close to Route 501. The venue has a Zip Line, concessions areas, two VIP areas, and merchandise booths.

Cashless wristbands will be available to purchase, and will allow you to easily pay for all your onsite expenses. Simply purchase tickets online and wristbands will be mailed ahead of time to the address on file. Tickets include 3-day festival access, with VIP upgrade available. Although this is an adult festival, kids are welcome, but they must have a ticket. Children 10 and under are admitted for free, but must be accompanied by an adult. The festival opens at 1PM and closes at 11:30PM each day.

Parking and continuous shuttle service will be available from the Myrtle Beach City Lot (Former Mall Lot) at 2400 North Oak Street in Myrtle Beach, just minutes from the festival site. Print your parking pass at home, or bring your phone and show it on the Ticketfly app. You will be scanned in each day. Just be sure to purchase event and shuttle/parking tickets before they sell out!
