- Performances by Toby Keith, Eli Young Band and more, September 26 to 28, 2013 -
Panama City Beach, FL, March 27, 2013 -

The Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam, a three-day celebration of sun, fun and country music, recently announced plans to debut its festival on the Gulf Coast shores of Panama City Beach, Florida from Thursday, September 26 to Saturday, September 28, 2013.

The first artists to join the concert lineup at this year's festival include 2013 Country Music Award nominees Toby Keith, Brantley Gilbert and the Eli Young Band. Also appearing onstage will be leading country artists Trace Adkins, Kip Moore, The Charlie Daniels Band, Pepsi's X Factor Winner Tate Stevens, Darryl Worley, Blackberry Smoke and Pepsi's Southern Original Winner.

Comprised of six stages, the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam will provide the best of today's country music for an audience of more than 15,000 people on the coast. During the day, three beachfront stages will be hosted by Edgewater Golf & Beach Resort, The Boardwalk Beach Resort and Seahaven Beach Resorts. Festival-goers will watch their favorite performers as they stand on the white "sugar sand" beach and dip their toes in the water. As the sun begins to set, patrons will ride free shuttles to the headline stage at Frank Brown Park. Once Toby Keith, Brantley Gilbert, and Trace Adkins close out their respective nights, the fun will continue at various venues across the destination.

"We are thrilled the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam will be taking place in Panama City Beach," says President and CEO of the Panama City Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau, Dan Rowe. "Visitors and music-lovers can enjoy great weather, Southern hospitality and good times all year round in Panama City Beach. This festival will be a perfect example of that."

With an influx of more than15,000 people estimated to arrive in Panama City Beach in September, not only will the festival bring in significant business for condos, hotels, restaurants, retail, and other tourist attractions, Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam will also be hiring hundreds of people to operate the festival.

Lodging packages, which include tickets to the three-day event, are on sale now and can be found at www.gulfcoastjam.com.

Beginning in May, three-day tickets that provide patrons access to all of the six stages and free shuttle passes will go on-sale to the public.
