Plans in motion for 2016 Carolina Country Music Fest, tickets on sale as soon as Friday

Country music fans can prepare for next year’s festival.

After what they’ve said was a successful inaugural year, organizers of the Carolina Country Music Fest on Tuesday told Myrtle Beach City Council they plan to announce the 2016 festival in the next few weeks.

“We’re excited about doing this 2016 and beyond,” said Bob Durkin, president of Full House Productions, the group that organized the festival. “Hopefully in the next couple of week, with approval from the city, we can announce that we’ll be back in 2016.”

Durkin said $139 tickets will be sold hopefully beginning Friday, despite the fact that organizers have not nailed down specific dates or artists for the concert.
