With new and improved sound and video throughout the festival, along with more surprise performances, we know it will be a weekend to remember.

Through a cashless wristband system, attendees will be able to pay for all onsite expenses with their wristband. Wristbands are mailed to the address on file for those who purchased tickets prior to May 20. Festival organizers recommend that those who receive their wristband in the mail prior to the event register their wristbands ahead of time to avoid long lines. You can do that here.  If tickets are purchased May 21 or later, wristbands will be available for pick up at will call. The wristband is also your entry into the festival. Concert goers will also be able to pay by credit card or cash.


CCMF is offering two different parking and shuttle pass options. A single day parking pass can be purchased for $24.99, or a 4-day parking pass can be purchased for $69.99. Both can be purchased here. For the 2018 event, attendees will be able to park at 2400 North Oak Street in downtown Myrtle Beach, just minutes from CCMF. A continuous shuttle will run from Thursday at 5 p.m. until midnight, and then Friday-Sunday from noon until midnight.

CCMF Partnership with Disabled American Veterans

Carolina Country Music Festival has partnered with the non-profit Disabled American Veterans to honor 10 injured vet’s to watch the weekend’s concerts for free. This is the second year they’ve done this. The 10 selected veterans will be recognized and honored at Friday night’s concert, and if you’re planning to attend CCMF you won’t want to miss this. It’s always a moving reminder about what Memorial Day weekend is really about.
