Last week, the 2018 Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam announced headlining acts Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett. This week, the sunny beachside festival revealed the full lineup for the three-day festival in Panama City Beach, Florida.
Cam, Brett Young and Dustin Lynch among others join the lineup. The festival also features a few “legacy” acts like Joe Diffie and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. You can also get your early 2000s fix with acts like Rodney Atkins and Montgomery Gentry.
Unfortunately, the only two female acts at this year’s festival are Cam and Lauren Alaina — both powerhouse vocalists with critically acclaimed pop-leaning country music. But the festival is giving a stage to a few up-and-coming and regional acts. Raleigh Keegan and Morgan Evans join the bill, too.
“We are incredibly excited about this lineup and feel there is something for everyone who walks through our gates,” Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam Executive Producer Rendy Lovelady says in a press release. “We love presenting new talent and showing off some amazing classic artists who paved the way in our business.”
The country festival ranks among some of the best, thanks to its beautiful setting and relatively affordable ticket price. A three-day pass is only $129. Last year more than 60,000 people from 13 countries attended the festival.
It certainly seems like festival season is well underway now that the sun is out to stay. The 2018 Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam takes place on Labor Day weekend.
