MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Carolina Country Music Fest is coming back to Myrtle Beach in June 2016, and Early Bird tickets are now available.

The official twitter account for the festival announced Friday they will be hosting another country music event in Myrtle Beach in June 2016.

The website already includes an option to buy Early Bird tickets for the festival for $139, and quantities are limited.

Exact dates and headlining artists for the festival have yet to be announced.

The 2015 event was held in June, brought over 19,000 attendees, according to organizers, and featured some of the biggest names in country music, including Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, and Rascal Flatts.

Myrtle Beach city leaders were pleased with the concert overall, noting that it brought in many first-time visitors to the city.

City spokesman Mark Kruea said they needed more workers than expected, especially for clean-up.

"We need to look at all the moving parts, and how we can make them work a little bit better, what the city's role in all of that will be. That's really on the table next year," Kruea said.
