Concert Series & Music Events
If you’re a fan of live music, Myrtle Beach has you covered. In addition to the numerous venues that host bands nightly, the area is also home to several concert series’ throughout the warmer months of the year. Rock & roll, country, jazz, pop, beach — there’s something for everyone at these shows. The performances also take place at a variety of venues, from under the live oaks at Brookgreen Gardens to oceanfront in downtown North Myrtle Beach and at a bar on the Intracoastal Waterway — check the schedule, pick a show, and go have a great time.
Music on Main
North Myrtle Beach’s annual concert series takes place on, you guessed it, Main Street. The usual lineup includes bands that play classic rock, motown, top 40, variety, blues, beach music, 90’s rock, and more. Bring a beach chair, your family, and friends, and enjoy the tunes.
Boathouse Backyard Summer Concert Series
This bar and grill on the waterway brings in all kinds of music for their Sunday Funday concert series. Past performers have included Little Texas, Coolio, Rehab, Fuel, and numerous other national, regional, and local acts. The series runs from May to September, and many attendees come by boat, hanging out on them or floating in the water as they listen to the live band. If you’re lucky, you might get invited onto one of them for a post-concert bash.
Cool Summer Evenings at Brookgreen Gardens
There’s nothing quite like nighttime in South Carolina during the summer months. It’s still a little warm even as the sun has passed for the day, but cooler in comparison to the sunshine-soaked afternoons. Enjoy relaxing tunes while taking in the surrounding beauty that the gardens have to offer. Shows are free with admission to the grounds.
