Kick-Start Your Summer With Some of Country Music’s Biggest Stars

Coming back for year four in 2018, the Carolina Country Music Fest — the largest three-day outdoor country music festival on the East Coast — is centered around two great American traditions: country music and fun at the beach. The festival will put more than 30 of the biggest names in country music on its stages, and the headliners will include superstars like Toby Keith, Cole Swindell, Zac Brown Band and Luke Bryan! Stay tuned, as even more big names are set to be announced soon.

To make the festival and a summer-opening beach vacation even more attractive, Dayton House Resort is offering up to 40 percent off its oceanfront accommodations and extensive amenities, plus discounted CCMF tickets. All together, this makes for an amazing way to kick off your summer and an ideal place to spend your free time before and after the shows. Click here to learn more about Dayton House Resort’s great CCMF promotions — but don’t wait, as these special offers won’t be around for too much longer.

Held at the former site of the Myrtle Beach Pavilion amusement park — on a spot featuring 18 coastal acres stretching from North Kings Highway to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk — the Carolina Country Music Fest delivers three full days of live music on a trio of separate stages, along with VIP areas, an array of vendor booths and concession stands, and more. Adventurous concertgoers can even ride the on-site zip line, and the festival’s laid-back, oceanfront vibe lends perfectly to kicking back on a beach blanket, sipping a few cold beverages, and enjoying live sets from your favorite country music acts.

Guests at Dayton House Resort, located on the oceanfront just north of downtown Myrtle Beach, can take the 5-minute cab ride to the venue, or catch a shuttle to and from the festival grounds before and after the shows. Before heading out to the main event (and upon return after the shows), guests can relax in our clean and comfortable rooms, or splash around in our zero-entry outdoor pool, our indoor pools, our hot tubs or our oceanfront lazy river. Once they’ve worked up an appetite or a thirst, guests can head for the on-site Yella Umbrella Poolside Bar & Grill or John’s Restaurant. Of course, the resort’s stretch of white-sand beach is right out the back door, and more great dining and shopping options are located in the vicinity of Dayton House Resort.

The CCMF festivities will open with the McDonald’s Kick-Off Concert on Thursday, June 7, at 6 p.m., then things really kick into high gear with three full days of music on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 8-10. Live performances run from 1 to 11:30 p.m. on the three festival stages on all three full festival days.

Attendees can purchase general-admission and VIP passes for admission, and fans are encouraged to bring beach blankets for seating. Learn more about the CCMF at
