CCMF 2022 promises to be a weekend full of good music and great people

Fans gather at the Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place each year to enjoy country music's top artists.

Every year, the Carolina Country Music Festival draws in crowds of 20,000 or more, enticing country music fans to make the trip to Myrtle Beach and providing locals with a source of entertainment every year. With full days of music, fun and friends, it’s easy to see why CCMF is one of the area’s largest annual festivals.  

This year, the June 9-12 festival is mixing things up with three themed nights. Guests are encouraged to wear outfits that follow the theme of Diamonds and Denim (on Friday), Wild West (on Saturday), and U.S.A. Day (Sunday). Be sure to come as one of the best dressed, and if you stand out from the crowd, you’ll have the opportunity to win exciting prizes like meet and greets, ticket upgrades, backstage tours, prize packs and more! Plus, CCMF is offering new merch that falls in line with each of the three themes, so now’s the best time to pick up some new threads for the concert. 

This year’s headliners include the likes of country music stars Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Keith Urban. With more than 30 country music stars in the lineup, every stage will light up the night with the best sounds in country. 

While you’re in the area, the venue is just a few feet away from the area’s shoreline, so take a minute or two to stop and enjoy the sand between your toes. With a number of accommodations to fit your needs, and with some located right on the beach, you’ll have to perfect opportunity to get away for a while. Plus, with delicious restaurants, amusement parks, and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk within walking distance, you’ll never experience a dull moment during the festival. 

CCMF has been bringing the best in country to the shores of Myrtle Beach since 2015, and gets better every year. For more festival information and to purchase tickets and merch, be sure to visit their website at
