Kellie Pickler, Corey Smith and three other performers have joined the lineup for the Carolina Country Music Fest in Myrtle Beach in June, organizers announced Tuesday.
Rodney Atkins, David Nail and Rainey Qualley also will perform during the festival June 5-7 on the former Pavilion site in Myrtle Beach, organizers said on the festival Twitter page (@CCMFLive) Tuesday.
Acts already lined up to perform at the festival include Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, Rascal Flatts, Colt Ford, Big & Rich, Hunter Hayes, Georgia Satellites, Brooke Eden, Cole Swindell and the Davisson Brothers Band. The festival is expected to feature 35 national, regional and local acts.
About 15,000 people a day are expected to attend the three-day festival.
Never miss a local story.
Festival organizers have said they have sold out of pre-sale tickets, but a representative was unable to say last month exactly how many tickets had to be sold to sell out.
Myrtle Beach City Council approved a motion to co-sponsor the event as well as offer more than $57,000 in in-kind services during the festival.
The motion appropriates a total of $57,289 from the undesignated balance of the general fund for festival costs to the city. Those costs will include staffing expenses for police, emergency management services, parks and solid waste, city spokesman Mark Kruea said.
Tickets are $189 for general admission, $299 for main stage VIP tickets, and $999 for super VIP tickets. Single-day tickets are not being sold. Visit www.carolinacountrymusicfest.com for more information.
