Plan Your Carolina Country Music Fest Trip Today

Get ready to grab those cowboy boots and pack your bags - the 2017 Carolina Country Music Fest will be here before you know it.

Are you trying to plan a trip down to Myrtle Beach but aren’t really sure when to go? Well, if you enjoy country music, head on down the second week of June to experience the 3rd Annual Carolina Country Music Fest! It is the perfect way to kick off the summer and enjoy some nice music, fun times and cool ocean breezes. Whether you want to zip-line while listening to Kenny Chesney or sip on an ice-cold adult beverage while enjoying a song by Jason Aldean, you will not want to miss this excitement-filled festival!

The Carolina Country Music Fest is held at the Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place, right in the heart of Myrtle Beach. This location is only about a 20-minute walk down the beach or boulevard from the Dayton House, but if you prefer to drive, there are parking and shuttle passes available. Opting for the short stroll down the boulevard will give you the opportunity to shop at various stores, check out different street vendors, and even grab a quick bite to eat or drink before heading into the shows. Once you are inside the venue, you will notice that there are two stages - the main stage located along the Boardwalk and another stage located closer to Highway 501. Between the two stages, you will find various merchandise booths, food, drinks, a zip line, 2 VIP areas and much, much more.

The only way to really get the party started is to have a Kick Off Concert Thursday night, which will be held from 6 to 11 p.m. The tickets to the Kick Off Concert will be available for purchase separate from the rest of the festival. In addition to those tickets, you have a few different options to consider when purchasing your festival tickets. You can purchase a 3-Day Weekend Pass for either General Admission, VIP or Super VIP. Click here for more information about tickets and accommodations. You are going to want to buy them as soon as possible, because you better believe that they will sell out, especially with headliners like Chesney, Aldean and Darius Rucker. The full lineup has not been announced yet, but you can also expect to see Billy Carrington, Lee Brice, Chris Young and Dee Jay Silver. It is important to know, however, that this is a rain-or-shine event, so you better make sure to check the weather forecast and pack some rain gear in case you encounter a summer shower or two!
