Over 64,000 People Visit Panama City for 2017 Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam

We’ve got everything that went down at the festival!

The 2017 Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam took place at Frank Brown Park in Panama City Beach, FL over Labor Day weekend and brought in some record-breaking crowds. Over the three days, 33 artists performed hours and hours of music for 64,000 adoring, rain soaked, mud covered and sunburned fans.

Over 23,000 fans packed Frank Brown Park in beautiful Panama City Beach to see artists such as Luke Bryan, Brett Eldredge, Granger Smith, Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Them Dirty Roses and Pepsi Southern Original winners South of Heaven. The almost-full moon was high above the stage, when headliner and Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan closed out his high-energy, crowd-pleasing set on the final night on late Sunday evening (September 3).

“This was the biggest crowd we’ve ever had by far,” said Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam Executive Producer Rendy Lovelady. “We can’t thank Panama City Beach enough for helping us make this an incredible success. I have to give credit to Chief of Police Drew Whitman and his whole team, Mayor Mike Thomas, the TDC (Panama City Beach Tourist Development Council) all of our first responders and the countless numbers of people behind the scenes for helping make this a huge success.”
