There's no need to choose between a relaxing summer vacation on the beach and a wild weekend at the concert event of the year. Grand Strand visitors can enjoy the best of both worlds by staying at Long Bay Resort away from the noise and crowds while attending the Third Annual Carolina Country Music Fest June 8-11 in the heart of Myrtle Beach's downtown district.

Held on the former Myrtle Beach Pavilion site with the Atlantic Ocean in the background, the Carolina Country Music Fest has quickly gained a reputation as one of the top spots for country music fans to see their favorite artists in concert while visiting their favorite vacation destination. Meanwhile, about five miles north up Ocean Boulevard, Long Bay has developed its own reputation for providing everything you need for an enjoyable vacation experience without ever leaving the property.

Featuring clean and comfortable accommodations with private balconies overlooking the beach, first-class amenities like our indoor/outdoor pool decks and on-site restaurants, and a spacious oceanfront tanning lawn in one of Myrtle Beach's most exclusive neighborhoods, Long Bay gives guests the perfect venue to relax and play. Catch a shuttle to CCMF and dance to the songs of some of country music's top artists, then head back to Long Bay to rest up for the next day.

Now, Long Bay is making it even more affordable for our guests to attend this year's CCMF by offering discounted accommodations and tickets. Save up to 40 percent off the regular room rate and receive discounted general admission and VIP tickets. With more than 30,000 country music fans expected to attend CCMF (and many more in town to kick off the summer season), rooms and tickets are going fast. Now is the time to act for the chance to see some of today's hottest stars live.

Headlining this year's CCMF are big-name acts Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and South Carolina's favorite son Darius Rucker, plus about 35 other bands, all sharing two stages and one spotlight at the festival. Although the headliner for the June 8 kickoff concert has yet to be announced, other acts on the main three-day schedule include Kip Moore, Billy Currington, Chris Young, Lee Brice and Dee Jay Silver. More acts and a detailed schedule are expected to be released in the coming days.

CCMF recently announced a new addition to its star-studded lineup with one of one of the most popular country music duos of all-time, Big & Rich. Known for No. 1 hits like “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),” “Comin' to Your City” and “Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace,” Big & Rich bring a party atmosphere to the stage that is sure to be a highlight of the event. Throw in all the headliners, undercard acts and the “Battle of the Bands” winners performing in front of cheering and dancing crowds, and you’ve got a special event that will be talked about and remembered for years to come.

This year's CCMF has all the makings to be the best one yet, so the time to start planning your trip is today. Book your reservations at Long Bay Resort and take advantage of all the savings and discounts, including reduced room rates and ticket prices. Claim your spot in the VIP section or the general admission crowd, along with your place in luxury at the oceanfront Long Bay. See your favorite artists in action, and then soak up the peaceful atmosphere of Long Bay Resort when you’re not at the show.
