ATLANTIC CITY —Tickets for the year’s first BeachFest concert will go on sale later this week.

Country music star Sam Hunt will July 1 with special guests Kane Brown and Conner Smith. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

Hunt has won several awards, including an American Music Award and a CMT Music Award. This year, he is nominated for a Grammy for best country solo performance for his hit “Body Like a Back Road,” which also is up for best country song at Sunday’s ceremony.

Last year’s beach concert series featured Pink, Brantley Gilbert and Ruff Ryders.

The show is part of a three-year, $6 million agreement with the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority that requires Live Nation to bring at least six beach concerts or events that attract 30,000 attendees or more to Atlantic City this summer.

Tickets are available Friday at or by phone at 800-745-3000.
