Carolina Country Music Fest 2020: Welcome Summer in Foot-Stomping Style on the Grand Strand

Close your eyes and imagine the perfect way to start your summer. Be creative, and don’t hold back. Now, if your dream scenario features amazing ocean views, the biggest stars in country music, and thousands of like-minded country music fans joining the fun, it might seem a little too far-fetched to actually happen — but on the Grand Strand this June, you’ll get the chance to make this awesome vision a reality. Set to be held on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront from June 4 through June 7, 2020, the Carolina Country Music Fest promises to deliver all of the above and more.

Returning for its sixth straight year in 2020, the East Coast’s largest three-day outdoor country music festival unites two great American traditions: country music and fun at the beach. And this year, the Carolina Country Music Fest will put the spotlight on 30-plus of the nation’s hottest country music acts, including megastar headliners Luke Combs, Eric Church, Jake Owen, and South Carolina’s own Darius Rucker! Other acts scheduled to appear include Jon Pardi, Chris Janson, Ashley McBryde and Mitchell Tenpenny. Stay tuned, as more acts are set to be announced soon!

Held at the former home of the Myrtle Beach Pavilion amusement park — a stretch of coastal land that boasts 18 acres running from the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk to North Kings Highway — the Carolina Country Music Fest features three full days of live music on three separate stages, along with VIP areas, concession stands, an array of vendor booths and more. Past headliners have included country music royalty the likes of Keith Urban, the Zac Brown Band, Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Toby Keith, Florida Georgia Line and many more!

CCMF’s laid-back, oceanfront atmosphere is perfect for kicking back on a beach blanket, cracking open a cold beverage, and soaking in the sounds of your favorite country music artists. Further, festival attendees looking for more adventure can even take a ride the on-site zip line.

The CCMF festivities will get started at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 4, with the McDonald’s Thursday Night Kick-Off Concert. The next day, the action swings into high gear with three full days of music on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 5-7. On all three full festival days, gates open at 1 p.m. and close at 11:30 p.m. Attendees can purchase general-admission and VIP passes for admission, and fans are encouraged to bring beach blankets for seating.
