Two more country music events are scheduled for Myrtle Beach on the heels of the Carolina Country Music Fest.

The events are scheduled for Aug. 3 and Oct. 26, but the lineup hasn’t been set.

Myrtle Beach City Council agreed to co-sponsor the two events with Palmetto Event Productions and Tin Roof.

Both events are to be held at the Burroughs & Chapin Pavilion Place off Ocean Boulevard and 9th Avenue North. Each is expected to attract about 7,000 concertgoers with free general admission and $25 VIP tickets available.

Food trucks will be at the events and there will be beer, wine and liquor sales.

Unlike the Carolina Country Music Fest, no road closures are expected.

The city’s co-sponsorship is about $21,000 for each event and it includes police and fire department services as well as $13,853 for use of the city’s concert stage.

The first event is Coastal Sounds Ocean Front Concert on Aug. 3 from 11 a.m.-11 p.m.

The second event is Myrtleween on Oct. 26 from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. with a Halloween theme.

Amie Lee of Palmetto Event Productions said the events are expected draw people to the city in the shoulder season and each is expected to grow in the future.

She said although country music is the genre for this year; the genres may change in the future.
