Give your friends a holler and get ready for some fun in the sun ’cause country music’s biggest stars are coming to the beautiful Wildwood beach! The inaugural Barefoot Country Music Fest (BCMF) will be held Friday, June 19 through Sunday, June 21 on the beach at Lincoln Avenue.
Last week, BCMF announced the first headliner for the music festival will be seven-time Grammy Award winner, Carrie Underwood. Since winning Season 4 of American Idol in 2005, Underwood has sold over 64 million records worldwide and had 26 No. 1 hits.
Underwood will be joined by over 30 of country music’s biggest stars and up-and-comers on multiple stages on the beach during the three-day event. With the combination of country music and the scenic beach backdrop, this family-friendly festival is sure to attract thousands of new visitors of all ages.
BCMF is brought to you by Southern Entertainment, the producers of the award-winning Carolina Country Music Fest (CCMF) in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the largest outdoor country music fest on the East Coast. BCMF is expected to be the Northeast’s largest outdoor country music festival, occupying a 27-acre playground on the beach.
“We’re excited to bring the top talent like we have brought to CCMF to the Wildwoods,” said Bob Durkin, President of Carolina Country Music Fest. “We will bring our talent pool, experience and success to make Barefoot Country Music Fest a world-class event.”
“The Barefoot Country Music Fest will be one of the most exciting events ever held in the Wildwoods, bringing thousands of new visitors to the Wildwoods at the very start of the summer tourism season. The economic impact on the Wildwoods and Cape May County should prove to be enormous, filling our hotels with overnight visitors, increasing restaurant covers and retail expenditures and generating increased revenue for all our attractions. We are excited that this great three-day festival will take place on our award-winning beach,” said John Siciliano, Executive Director/CFO of the Greater Wildwoods Tourism Authority.
