The 8th Annual Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam was set for Sept. 4-6, 2020 at Frank Brown Park in Panama City Beach, Florida, but increasing Coronavirus numbers nationwide have forced organizers to move this year’s event to March 26-28, 2021. Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley and Lynyrd Skynyrd are still set to headline, and the rest of the previously announced lineup is still intact.
“We held out as long as we possibly could before making the decision to postpone this year’s Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam,” said Executive Producer Rendy Lovelady. “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.”
Along with Lynyrd Skynyrd, artists Cody Jinks, Joe Nichols, Lindsay Ell, Jon Langston, CJ Solar and Frank Ray are scheduled for Friday, March 26, 2021. Cole Swindell, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jordan Davis, Tenille Townes, Shy Carter and Alex Hall will help Paisley round out Saturday’s lineup. Bryan, along with Brothers Osborne, Riley Green, Walker Hayes, Ryan Hurd, Shelly Fairchild and the Pepsi Southern Original winner will entertain on the final day.
“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,” said 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!”
