Myrtle Beach, S.C. — July 13, 2020 – Ocean Lakes Family Campground in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, announces a band change for Friday’s show featuring Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. The 22nd Annual Premier Bluegrass Weekend is only for Ocean Lakes’ guests and will be held on Friday, Aug. 21st, and Saturday, Aug. 22nd. Some of the most popular performers in Bluegrass will be at Ocean Lakes. The 2020 revised lineup includes: Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Rhonda Vincent, Breaking Grass, and Carolina Blue Band. The concert is exclusively for guests of the campground staying at campsites, rental houses, or annual lease sites. “We are excited to welcome Doyle Lawson back to our stage! We know this is a different year and our guests are looking to this event, even calling to confirm it is happening,” explains Barb Krumm, Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Ocean Lakes Family Campground.
The music will fill the air-conditioned, 17,000 square foot Recreation Center, which is less than 200 feet from the ocean. Seating is limited.
Along with the musical performances, tickets include a Bluegrass Golf Car Poker Run, Mini Golf Tournament, and many more activities for family members of all ages, such as amenities like Sandy Harbor Water Park.
The climate-controlled building is a real benefit to any Bluegrass fan! Every year the event grows in popularity, so it is important to reserve a site and purchase tickets as soon as they go on sale.
Looking for 2020 Ticket? |
“Guests loved the changes we implemented last year!” said Barb Krumm, Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Ocean Lakes Family Campground. “We sold out last year and had guests scrambling to find tickets. Featuring four bands, as opposed to our traditional eight bands allows us to book big names and adjust the schedule for attendees.” Tickets sales were limited for this year’s show in light of COVID-19. It is a private event/activity only for Ocean Lakes’ guests (camper, renters, leaseholders). Guests can contact us at the Event Ticket Hotline at (843) 828-4856 or online at www.OceanLakes.com.
“We expect cancellations and are working to have guest-friendly policies for those that need to change their plans this year due to COVID-19,” comments Krumm. “Anyone still looking for tickets should call our Ticket Line or reach out to Lauren at email@example.com to see if there are tickets not being used for this year’s show.”
Bluegrass entertainment begins mid-afternoon each day (see schedule at OceanLakes.com).
2020 prices for adult wristbands for both days are only $65 (plus site fee) if ordered in advance. Wristbands for ages 7 – 12 are $40, and children 6 and under are free. Tickets for the day of the show will be $70 for adults and $45 for children ages 7 -12.
