Some of country music’s brightest stars will have an opportunity to shine at the upcoming Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam. First held in 2013, the festival has quickly become a Panama City Beach tradition. Past events have featured such familiar names as Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Trace Adkins, and Lady Antebellum.

Headliners for this year’s show, scheduled for Labor Day Weekend, September 1, 2, and 3, are Jason Aldean, Little Big Town, and Luke Bryan. Aldean, whose hard-charging sound and style helped define today’s country music, has just released his seventh album,

Friday night’s concerts will conclude with a performance by Jason Aldean.

They Don’t Know. The four members that make up Little Big Town have been performing together since 1998. The winners of an Emmy, a Grammy, two Academy of Country Music (ACM), and three Country Music Association (CMA) awards, they have just released their sixth album, Pain Killer. ACM and CMA award winner Bryan was chosen to sing the national anthem at Super Bowl LI in Houston. Since the debut of his first album in 2007, Bryan has placed 18 singles in the No. 1 spot, sold 10 million albums, 40 million tracks, and accrued back-to-back double-platinum albums in what continues to be a phenomenally successful career.

Also part of the 2017 lineup are Lee Brice, the Oak Ridge Boys, Darryl Worley, the Railers, Gal Friday, Kip Moore, Dan + Shay, Colt Ford, Diamond Rio, William Michael Morgan, Muscadine Bloodline, Brett Eldredge, Granger Smith, Kane Brown, Them Dirty Roses, and the Pepsi Southern Original contest winner.

The main stage for Gulf Coast Jam is at Frank Brown Park. The gates will open daily at 2 p.m., with shows starting at 2:30 and ending at midnight. There is no seating, but fans are welcome to bring their own portable folding lawn chairs. There is a handicapped-accessible viewing area, and festival personnel with golf carts will be available to transport those who need assistance. Shuttle service will be running all three days of the festival and is free for ticket holders.

Jason Aldean will perform on Friday night, September 2. Little Big Town’s performance is scheduled for Saturday night. The festival closes with Bryan’s Sunday night show. Crowds for 2017 are expected to top 75,000 for the three-day event.
