After an initial postponement to September, the festival will now take place in June 2021
Since the decision was made to postpone the Carolina Country Music Fest (CCMF) from its traditional June date to September amid COVID-19 concerns, fans were even more anxiously anticipating the chance to experience an epic weekend of country talent. The three-day outdoor festival, which was slated to start with the McDonald’s Thursday Night Kick-Off Concert, and run from September 17 to 20, has now been postponed again. The new date is set for June 10–13, 2021.
The uncertainty around the pandemic and the desire to protect the health and safety of fans, artists, the community and CCMF staff made it increasingly clear the postponement was necessary. The 2020 headliners—Jake Owen, Luke Combs, Eric Church and Darius Rucker—will still be on the summer 2021 lineup.
“Let’s just say it. 2020 sucks,” said festival organizers. “We understand many of y’all hoped to still gather together on the beach this year—and we did, too.”
For those who purchased tickets to the 2020 event, rollover incentives will include lower pricing than will be available in 2021, 30 minute early entry to the fest each day, $20 in CCMF bucks loaded on wristband to use for drinks or merch and entry to win a CCMF prize pack.
