The Second Annual Carolina Country Music Festival offers plenty of reasons to escape to Myrtle Beach for a long weekend of good times and great music. Long Bay Resort provides even more reasons to stay with us and save on your concert getaway.
Offering special discounts on accommodations and tickets to the Carolina Country Music Fest, Long Bay is the place to stay to enjoy the concert event of the summer on the Grand Strand. And if saving up to 25 percent off the regular room rate and receiving up to $53 off your ticket package aren't reason enough to tempt you into a country music beach retreat, Long Bay and partner Brittain Resorts & Hotels are giving away 20 pairs of tickets to fans who follow us on social media.
You heard us right, country music fans and Myrtle Beach lovers! Forty lucky fans will get to attend the event for free just for following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. That's where you’ll find all the details on how you can crash the gate to see more than 30 big-name country artists perform on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront. Guests can keep up with the latest festival updates through the CCMF app and share their experiences using the hashtags #ccmf, #ccmf4life, #ccmflove and #ccmflive.
Back by popular demand, this year's Carolina Country Music Fest appears poised to surpass last year's inaugural event, which saw more than 50,000 fans catch such stars as Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts and Hunter Hayes. This year's event, which will be held June 10-12, will bring even more chart-topping stars to the stages, highlighted by headliners Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Florida Georgia Line. Early projections call for an even larger crowd than last year's.
Almost as impressive as the list of stars scheduled to appear at the Carolina Country Music Fest is the unique beachside setting for the three-day event. Held on the 18-acre oceanfront lot on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk that was once home to the historic Pavilion, the venue features a main stage with a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean serving as the backdrop. Concession stands, vendor booths and a zipline will be located on the concert grounds, which also allow patrons to enjoy hot food, cold drinks and some of the best music around.
The festivities begin with the Visit Myrtle Beach Kick Off Concert on Thursday, June 9, from 6 to 11 p.m., followed by all-day shows Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In addition to the headliners, undercard acts include Cole Swindell, Jake Owen, A Thousand Horses, Kelsea Ballerini, Michael Ray, Maren Morris, Chris Lane, Kane Brown, Joe Nichols, Chase Bryant, Lauren Jenkins and more artists to be announced. Shows run from 1 to 11 p.m. on all three festival days. Fans are encouraged to bring beach blankets for seating, and the festival’s admission arm bands serve as on-site debit cards attendees can use to make all their on-site purchases.
Guests at Long Bay Resort can catch a shuttle to the shows, take in all the sights and sounds, and return to the resort for a relaxing stay. Enjoy a hearty breakfast and soak up some sun and fun on our outdoor/indoor pool decks and in our waterparks to get ready for the show. After the music stops, come back to your comfortable room with a private balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at Long Bay and get a good night's sleep before you do it all over again the next day. It’s just one more reason to make Long Bay Resort your go-to place to stay in Myrtle Beach.
