CCMF Planning Guide

The Carolina Country Music Fest returns to Myrtle Beach June 6 – 9th! Carrie Underwood, Morgan Wallen, Old Dominion, and Parker McCollum headline the largest country music festival on the East Coast. If you’re searching for insider information, daily schedules and more, use our CCMF Planning Guide to help plan your visit. 


The Carolina Country Music Fest is officially sold out of all tickets in all tiers for 2024, but they’ve partnered with Lyte to give you a safe and secure way to buy or sell your tickets. Keep these tips in mind when you’re looking for tickets to CCMF: 

  • Do not try to buy tickets day-of from someone outside of the festival grounds. These tickets are typically either counterfeit or stolen, and you won’t be able to get into the festival with them. 
  • Request your ticket through the official CCMF portal and enter your payment information ahead of time – your purchase will be processed as soon as a ticket becomes available for you. 
  • Do not send money for ticket verification to anyone who claims to be a CCMF representative, even if their email address “looks official.”

If you missed out on 2024 tickets, follow the Carolina Country Music Fest on social media for contests and chances to win tickets throughout the year! Early-bird tickets for this year’s festival went on sale just a few weeks after the show – so turn their post notifications on and don’t miss out! 


The 2024 Carolina Country Music Fest headliners are Carrie Underwood, Morgan Wallen, Parker McCollum, and Old Dominion. 

Other artists include Lady A, Megan Moroney, Colt Ford, Logan Crosby, Larry Fleet, Parmalee, Diamond Rio, and plenty more – see the full 2024 lineup here.


Dayton House is here to help you pack and prepare for your trip to Myrtle Beach for CCMF. Here are a few helpful reminders as you begin preparations: 

  • Download the 2024 CCMF app for venue maps, vendor lists & more  
  • Register and activate your CCMF wristband as soon as it arrives in the mail (and don’t post photos where your information is visible!)
  • Embrace the cashless experience of CCMF by connecting a credit or debit card to your RFID wristband – accepted by all on-site vendors 
  • Review CCMF 2024 Theme Nights to be sure you pack just the right outfit & accessories
  • Check CCMF bag policies and festival rules beforehand to breeze through the security line 


Now that your mind is in festival preparation mode, we’ve created a simple survival kit list to help CCMF’ers have the best possible experience in 2024. Depending on how you get here, you may want to take advantage of the Myrtle Beach shopping options to pick some of these things up once you’re in town. Keep these items handy: 

  • Appropriate footwear. Style is important, but don’t forget the amount of time you will be standing and the grassy/sandy ground you’ll be walking on. CCMF is not the time to break in new boots! 
  • Cheap sunglasses. Eye protection is a must, but don’t wear your most expensive pair of shades. There is always the chance that your sunglasses could get lost or stepped on. 
  • Sunscreen. Myrtle Beach’s typical temperatures in June are in the mid-80s which means lots of sunshine. Be prepared and don’t get burnt on day one – a sunburn can make the rest of the festival uncomfortable or even unsafe. 
  • Portable charger. There’s nothing worse than being at an amazing concert without a way to document the experience, or reconnect with your group if you get separated. Be prepared and keep an eye on your battery level. 
  • Beach towel. When it’s time to take a break between sets and grab a bite to eat, pull out your cute beach towel and easily create the perfect picnic spot. 
  • A hat. The shade created by a big floppy hat will not only protect your eyes but also provide shade for your shoulders. 
  • Deodorant. Let’s be honest, everyone sweats, but you can easily stay fresh and clean.
  • Extra hair ties. Keep the hair off your neck, help tie up your t-shirt, or solve wardrobe malfunctions. 
  • Adhesive bandages. Easily protect an accidental scrape or blister. (*Three First Aid tents are located inside the festival.)

Thursday, June 6: Thursday Night Kick-Off Concert
Details to come! 

Schedules for Friday through Sunday will be released on the Carolina Country Music Fest’s social media closer to the event – keep checking! 

Friday’s theme: Hawaiian Night

CCMF’s Friday night theme is Hawaiian Night! Embrace a vibrant and relaxed beach style. Think flowy materials, floral hair pieces, puka shell necklaces, and other beachy accessories. A tribute to the man of casual style himself, Jimmy Buffet – don’t forget your Hawaiian shirts.   

Saturday’s theme: Neon Cowboy

A country classic with a bright twist. CCMF’s Saturday night theme is Neon Cowboy – choose classic Western pieces and spice them up with neon accessories, lots of fringe, studs, and rhinestones. Want to go the extra mile? Bring your glow stick necklaces and bracelets, light up cowboy hats, and glow belts!  

Sunday’s theme: U.S. of A Day

CCMF’s Sunday theme is U.S. of A –  a festival tradition and a tribute to Toby Keith. Incorporate the standard red, white, and blue colors into your outfit in unique ways with accessories, head wear, makeup, glasses, and shoes. Don’t forget your denim. What’s more American than a good pair of boot cut jeans? 


If you plan to park your car at CCMF, you will need a parking pass! Parking and continuous shuttle service to and from the Fest will be available at 2400 North Oak Street in Myrtle Beach in the Myrtle Beach City Lot (formerly the Mall Lot). 

The parking lot will be open Thursday from 5-midnight and Friday thru Sunday from noon to midnight, with shuttle service running during those times.
