Festival includes original headliners
The 2020 Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam that was set to take place over Labor Day Weekend in Panama City Beach, FL, has been moved to March 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns. Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, Lynyrd Skynyrd are still headlining the event.
“We held out as long as we possibly could before making the decision to postpone this year’s Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam,” shares Executive Producer Rendy Lovelady in a press release. “The excitement for the festival was amazing. We knew our Jammers wanted to get out and hear some great country music, but virus numbers are rising all over the country and we had to make this very difficult decision.”
“The safety of Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam artists, fans, vendors, staff and the residents of our wonderful city is our highest priority, no matter what’s going on,” states Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam COO Mark Sheldon. “We felt like we had a great plan in place to make this a safe event, but conversations with state and local officials, the health department and CDC confirmed this was the most prudent move for everyone involved. We look forward to seeing everyone in March!”
Performance dates and times will be released exclusively via the festival’s mobile app that will launch closer to the festival.
The lineup includes Cody Jinks, Joe Nichols, Lindsay Ell, Jon Langston, CJ Solar, Frank Ray, Cole Swindell, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jordan Davis, Tenille Townes, Shy Carter, Alex Hall, Brothers Osborne, Riley Green, Walker Hayes, Ryan Hurd, Shelly Fairchild and the Pepsi Southern Original winner.
