While the greater Myrtle Beach area is best known for our 60 miles of pristine beaches and oceanfront, we are also home to some amazing opportunities to soak up some great music while on holiday in the USA. Here are just a few of our favorites spots to enjoy our music scene.
Carolina Country Music Festival (CCMF)
Traditionally held the first week of June each year, it was moved to September 17 – 20, 2020, due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The good news is, there is still time to get your tickets to see some of the top country music superstars including local favorite Darius Rucker as well as Luke Combs and Eric Church just to name a few. And did we mention that the backdrop is the Atlantic Ocean? This top country music festival is one you won’t want to miss! Learn more about CCMF.
