Organizers of the Fifth Annual Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam, set for Labor Day Weekend, September 1-3, 2017 at Frank Brown Park in beautiful Panama City Beach, Florida, have announced VIP Pit Experience Tickets will increase from $439 to $469 tomorrow, Friday, August 4. Jason Aldean, Little Big Town and Luke Bryan are set to headline the exciting Festival, and they will be joined by 18 other acts over the three days.
Over 25 artists competed in three cities for the title of 2017 Pepsi Southern Original. The Top 5 artists from 2017 will join the Top 5 finalists from 2016 to perform for the top prize. The finals are set for Thursday, August 31 at Ms. Newbys in Panama City Beach. All 10 acts will perform, and the winner will open the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam on Sunday, September 3. The Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam staff would like to thank HWY 20 Entertainment for coordinating the competition again this year.
“It was difficult to narrow down the finalists from such great talent,” said executive producer Rendy Lovelady about the Pepsi Southern Original Finalists. “We’re excited for fans to check out all of these acts and see the winner on the big stage a few days later.“
Lovelady also emphasized the Festival’s “Clear Bag Policy” for patrons entering the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam. Similar to the NFL and other major events, attendees may carry one large clear bag about the size of a one-gallon Ziploc bag or no larger than 12″x6″x12″. In addition, a small clutch purse no larger than 4.5″x6.5″ is permitted. Ticket holders are encouraged to visit www.GulfCoastJam.com/entry for additional items that are allowed or prohibited from being carried onto the Festival grounds.
In addition to the headliners, Brett Eldredge, Tyler Farr Lee Brice, Kip Moore, Dan + Shay, Granger Smith, Luke Combs, Colt Ford, Kane Brown, The Oak Ridge Boys, Darryl Worley, Diamond Rio, William Michael Morgan, The Railers, Gal Friday Band, Them Dirty Roses and Muscadine Bloodline are all scheduled to entertain during the action-packed weekend.

Music will begin each day at 2:00pm, so festival goers can spend the morning taking a leisurely walk on the beach, enjoying the bright sunshine, grabbing lunch at one of Panama City Beach’s wonderful restaurants or checking out other area attractions before heading to the concert grounds for an afternoon and evening of entertainment.
