PLEASURE ISLAND, NC — The Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce, which serves Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Ft. Fisher and southern New Hanover County, has announced that it will host the 35th Annual Carolina Beach Music Festival on Saturday, August 14 in Carolina Beach, NC. The festival is an all-day event that takes place on and around the beach in front of the Carolina Beach Boardwalk, with bands performing on the boardwalk’s oceanfront stage.

            Headliners for this year’s Festival include Jim Quick and Coastline, The Band of Oz and Blackwater Rhythm and Blues. Advance tickets go on sale on Monday, May 3 for $35 each at the Chamber offices, at various retailers and on Tickets will be available on the day of the Festival for $40 each. Festival patrons may bring their own chairs, coolers and food onto the beach to enjoy throughout the day.

            “The Carolina Beach Music Festival is the longest running beach music festival in the United States that is still held on the beach,” said Lynn Halterman, Chair Emeritus of the Chamber Board and Chair of this year’s Tourism Committee. “It’s a truly unique event that draws beach music enthusiasts from up and down the East Coast who get to enjoy a day of great music, shag dancing and the very best that Pleasure Island has to offer. We had to cancel the Beach Music Festival last year due to Covid so we’re anticipating even greater interest in this year’s event. We’re hoping for attendance of 2,500, if not more.”


            Jim Quick and Coastline, like their namesake the Atlantic Coastline Railroad, have been traveling the tracks of the southeast and connecting with loyal fans for more than 25 years. The band pulls from Soul, Blues, R&B, and Americana to create their own genre of music known as Swamp Soul. Front man Jim Quick and his band maintain an average of 250 tour dates per year and are best known for capturing the spirit of musical traditions born and bred in small town Americana.

            The Band of Oz originated in Eastern North Carolina in 1967 as a part-time band playing frat parties and high school proms across the south. Ten years later in 1977, the band went on the road full time. Since then, the Band of Oz has made an exceptional name for itself and has performed at top venues and Beach Music Festivals throughout the southeast. Today’s Band of Oz features 8 members, a full horn section and performs more than 200 shows per year.

            Based out of Clarkton, NC, Blackwater Rhythm and Blues is well known for its high-energy live performances and its dedication to Beach Music, Blues and Funk. This 8-member band is comprised of talented and varied musicians and together they perform about 100 shows per year. The band’s song Dance Tonight reached No. 1 on the Beach Music Top 40 in 2015.

            On the day of the Festival, the gates will open at 10:00 a.m. and the bands will begin to perform at 11:00 a.m. Corporate sponsorships are available ranging from $500 to $7500.

            Founded more than 75 years ago, Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce is the oldest business organization on Pleasure Island. For additional information,
