As the name suggests, Barefoot Country Music Fest pivots around Kenny Chesney's famous mantra of ‘No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems’, with the beachside extravaganza bringing fans together for a weekend of sun-soaked, margarita-fuelled anthems.
In 2024, Barefoot Country Music Fest is returning to Wildwood Beach, New Jersey, with the likes of Luke Bryan, Kane Brown, Keith Urban, Old Dominion, Bailey Zimmerman, Niko Moon and Jake Owen all set to storm onto the stage across June 20-23.
Attendees will also get the chance to enjoy stellar performances from a slew of fast-emerging artists, including country prodigies Nate Smith, Hailey Whitters and Alana Springsteen.
Thankfully, with Barefoot Country Music Fest being situated right on the beach between Morey's Piers, there are a range of seaside hotels and motels within walking distance.
Although this breadth of choice is undoubtedly a great thing when it comes to deciding where to stay for the festival, it can also leave you feeling overwhelmed by the plethora of options - particularly if it's your first time in the area.
But don't worry, we've compiled a guide to some great places to stay during the 2024 festival, to ensure the only frets you have will be the ones coming in from the sea on a balmy June evening, as you're serenaded by some incredible country music.
The Sea Gull Motel offers guests a sizeable pool, so that when you've spent the day gazing longingly into the ocean while you jam out to Luke Bryan's ‘Play It Again’, you can return to your accommodation and enjoy a late-night dip to cool off from the summer heat.
A 17 minute walk away from the Wildwood Beach, the Sea Gull Motel is a tad further away than the other candidates on this list, but is still undoubtedly in a great location to make the most of your Barefoot Country Music Fest 2024 experience.
Although a little more expensive, Daytona Inn and Suites is considerably closer to the action, with the 43-room block located a mere 4 minute walk from the sandy shores of Wildwood Beach.
Daytona Inn and Suites offers two outdoor pools, and this extra space will come in handy due to the hordes of festival-goers set to descend on Wildwood during the hugely popular festival.
The beautifully named Calypso Boutique Hotel is another charming option just a stone's throw away from Wildwood Beach, with guests able to utilise the well-sized outdoor pool.
Boasting a cute, colourful exterior that aligns with the joyously retro room designs, the Calypso Boutique Hotel will provide you with a cozy, comfortable base for you daily trips to the shore.
The Surf Comber Motel proves once again that Wildwood, New Jersey might be home to some of the coolest hotel and motel names on the East Coast. The Surf Comber stays true to its titular vibe of sun, sea and sand-driven decor, with the rooms featuring vibrant, oceanic blue walls and an array of holiday-inspired art.
Situated just 11 minutes away from Wildwood Beach on foot, the Surf Comber feels far enough that you can escape the noise of any late-night after-parties if you're looking to avoid them, but close enough that you hopefully won't struggle to find your way home relatively quickly if you do decide to stay out until the early hours.
Even though you won't be spending your time in Wildwood participating in the Bolero dance or even listening to Bolero music, the Bolero Resort nonetheless sets out to make you feel as though you're being carried away by the laidback, easygoing rhythm of the hotel.
Just a four minute walk away from the Barefoot Country Music Fest grounds, this option is conveniently placed and will ensure you feel relaxed and pampered when spending time away from the festival. With a pool and an accompanying bar, you'll be able to get in the perfect sunny-side-up mindset before heading down to the beach and dancing the night away to Kane Brown's wealth of breezy chart-toppers.
