Carolina beach music is returning to Aiken this summer.
The second Beach Music Festival, presented by the Aiken Standard, will be held from 5 to 11 p.m. Friday, Aug. 13, at The Village at Woodside, 230 Village Green Blvd.
The festival will feature the Band of Oz performing beach music classics, a shag dancing contest and food vendors.
“The Band of Oz is one of the most successful groups in the Southeast … The band now features a full horn section to total a dynamic eight-member group,” according to the group’s website.
Attendees can bring a beach blanket and chairs to sit and enjoy their favorite beach tunes. No coolers or outside food will be permitted.
There will be a cash bar.
The first Beach Music Festival in Aiken was held in 2019.
