MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Whether you're going to the Carolina Country Music Fest, or not, it will all be right at your fingertips.

Our WMBF News smartphone App will give you continuous updates on what happens at the Carolina Country Music Fest. Concert organizers also created their own app, which will help you, especially when it comes to wristbands.

"If you're going to the concert and you want to put money on your wristband, the easiest way is to go right through the app,” said Carolina Country Music Fest owner Bob Durkin. “You pull up wristbands, sign into the account, it will ask you how much money you wanna put on there and instantaneously you'll have it on your wristband."

There will also be top-up stations throughout the concert. The app, however, will help you avoid lines.

Wristbands is one of the five areas on the app. There's a place with a site map, the concert lineup, the vendors, and social media.

You'll also get push notifications, for example, when the gates open or when a new artist comes - which our app will do for you too.

This is a way to keep the 20,000 festival-goers in the know, and connected.

"Its just the way the world's going,” said Durkin. “Everyone gets their information through digital and today, these days, people want it instantaneously so we want people to live right in the moment when they're at the festival."

On top of the use of apps, there will be social media kiosks here to get everyone active on forums like Facebook and Twitter.

We'll be sending you information using the hashtag #WMBFatCCMF, send us a tweet.
