It’s hard to imagine a better kickoff to summer than joining 50,000 of your friends and fellow country music fans for a star-studded music festival with an ocean view. And since that’s exactly the scenario set for June 7-10, 2018, on the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, oceanfront, you’ll want to book your stay at North Beach Plantation early so you can guarantee your spot and gain easy access to all the action.

Back for a much-anticipated fourth year in 2018, the Carolina Country Music Fest — the largest three-day outdoor country music festival on the East Coast — is rooted in two great American traditions: country music and fun at the beach. The festival will showcase more than 30 of the nation’s top country music acts, and megastars Luke Bryan, Toby Keith and the Zac Brown Band will top the bill! More acts will be announced soon, so stay tuned.

To sweeten the deal, North Beach Plantation is offering discounted festival tickets and savings of up to 40 percent on its oceanfront accommodations and first-class amenities. All said, it makes for an amazing way to kick off your summer and a great place to spend your time before and after the CCMF shows.

Held on the land formerly occupied by the Myrtle Beach Pavilion amusement park — on a site featuring 18 coastal acres that stretch from the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk to North Kings Highway — the Carolina Country Music Fest boasts three stages, three full days of live music, concession stands, VIP areas, an array of vendor booths and more. Adventurous attendees can even ride the on-site zip line, and the laid-back, oceanfront atmosphere lends itself perfectly to kicking back and relaxing on a beach blanket, enjoying a cold beverage or two, and soaking in the sounds of your favorite country music artists.

Guests at North Beach Plantation are within an easy cab ride of the venue, or they can catch a shuttle to and from the concert grounds before and after the shows. Before heading out to the main event (and after you get back), you can rest up in our clean and comfortable accommodations, splash around in our indoor pool or Caribbean-themed outdoor pool with a swim-up bar, float the on-property lazy river, and enjoy your private balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. When hunger strikes, treat yourself to a delicious steak or some hand-rolled sushi at 21 Main Prime Steakhouse. And to wind down after all the shows are in the books, pamper yourself with a visit to the on-site Cinzia Spa. Of course, the white-sand beach is located just steps away from your room, and more great dining and shopping options are within easy walking distance of the resort.

The CCMF festivities will begin with the McDonald’s Kick-Off Concert on Thursday, June 7, at 6 p.m., then the action kicks into high gear with three full days of music on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 8-10. On all three full festival days, live performances run from 1 to 11:30 p.m. on the three festival stages. Attendees can purchase general-admission and VIP passes for admission, and fans are encouraged to bring beach blankets for seating. Learn more about the festival at
