Jim Beam® Vanilla to Host Relaxing Area at Festival
Special $119 Military Ticket Offered
Nashville, Tennessee (June 28, 2018) – Organizers of the 6th Annual Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam are excited to announce the return of the Jim Beam® Vanilla Military Appreciation Tent at the three-day Country Music Festival set for August 31-September 2, 2018 at Frank Brown Park in beautiful Panama City Beach. The hospitality tent is provided specifically for active and discharged military and their families, giving them the perfect place to go to sit, relax, and hang out during the event.
“The Military Appreciation Tent was a big hit last year, and we are honored to again partner with Jim Beam® Vanilla to offer a location at the Festival that specifically serves our military and their families,” said Rendy Lovelady, Executive Producer of the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam, which Billboard Magazine named one of “The 10 Best Country Music Festivals.”
In addition to a lounge seating area, massage chairs and cooling fans, military patrons can also register for giveaways inside the tent. Some of the prizes include Pepsi coolers and merchandise, Jim Beam merchandise, Bud Light swag, sunglasses, coolers, post-event weekend condo packages, upgraded ticket opportunities, gift cards and more.
Military tickets are $119 per person for all three days. That price will not increase, but quantities are limited. Members may purchase tickets for immediate family, and the entire group must be present to enter Festival grounds.
The tent will be accessible at no cost to active and retired military and their families. Upon arriving at the festival, military ticket holders will show their military ticket at the gate and will be given a specific wristband allowing them entry into the festival and access to the Jim Beam® Vanilla Military Appreciation Tent. Active and retired military patrons who purchase upgraded tickets to the festival will show their military ID at the tent for entry.
Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church, and Thomas Rhett are set to headline, and Justin Moore, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Chase Rice, Cam, Brett Young, Lauren Alaina, Rodney Atkins, Montgomery Gentry, Drake White, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Joe Diffie, Morgan Evans, A Thousand Horses, Tyler Rich, The Georgia Thunderbolts, Raleigh Keegan and the Pepsi Southern Original winner are all confirmed to perform over the three days.
Over 64,000 fans from all 50 states and 13 foreign countries packed last year’s Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam – the largest in the festival’s history. Country Living recently named the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam among “12 of the Best Country Music Festivals,” saying, “…this party takes place in one of Florida’s most beautiful locations, Panama City Beach.”
Tickets for the three-day Festival are available now and range from $149 General Admission to $439 VIP Pit Experience, $699 VIP Golden Circle and $999 VIP Side Stage. Skyboxes are already sold out! Information on purchasing tickets, Preferred Lodging Packages and more can be found here.
Music begins each day at 2 p.m., so festival-goers can spend the morning taking a leisurely walk on the beach, hitting one of many challenging golf courses, fishing, enjoying the bright sunshine, grabbing lunch at one of Panama City Beach’s wonderful restaurants or checking out other area attractions before heading to the concert grounds for an afternoon and evening of entertainment.
