HARDY, Morgan Wallen, Miranda Lambert, and Kane Brown will headline the 2023 Gulf Coast Jam.

The 11th annual four-day oceanside festival presented by Jim Beam, will take place from June 1-4, 2023, at Frank Brown Park in Panama City Beach, Florida.

Serving as the perfect kick-off to summer, the event will feature Brown, Wallen, Lambert and Hardy alongside 28 additional artists, which will be unveiled on Friday, November 18. 

Gulf Coast Jam Presented by Jim Beam is the largest music event in the Southeast and was named one of the 10 Best Country Music Festivals by Billboard. The festival was extended to four days in 2022 to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Due to the overwhelming success of the 2022 event, the festival will permanently be four days long. 

Wallen and Lambert were previously announced as headliners, while HARDY and Kane Brown were recently added. 

“Morgan Wallen is by far the most requested headliner we have ever had in the history of Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam as the fans hear their lives in his music,” festival Executive Producer Rendy Lovelady previously shared. “We are all excited to welcome him to Panama City Beach!”

“Morgan’s lyrics are about living in small towns, the way you can get pulled away by your dreams and the things or loves you leave behind,” added Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam COO Mark Sheldon. “That’s real life … and his fans and our jammers see and live that stuff every day. The way his music is connecting makes him the perfect headliner for us.”

“We’re incredibly excited about the addition of HARDY to this already amazing lineup,” Sheldon continued. 

“Miranda headlined one of our very first Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam festivals, and we’ve been working like crazy to get her back ever since,” Lovelady went on to share. “She is an entertainer who leaves it all on the stage every time she performs, and we’re excited to add her to our amazing 2023 lineup.”

Festival organizers are also excited to welcome back Brown, who will make his long-awaited return to Gulf Coast Jam.

“Kane Brown played Gulf Coast Jam in 2017, and it’s incredible to see how his career has exploded over the last five years,” Lovelady shared via press release. “The impact he’s had not just on country music but on music overall is inspiring, and he’s an artist our Jammers have been requesting for a while.”

Sky Boxes, Side Stage and Super VIP packages are already sold out for 2023. Early Entry passes, Platinum Parking and General Parking are also sold out. 

A very limited number of VIP Pit passes are available for $589.00, General Admission is currently $169.00, College passes are $159.00, and Military and First Responder passes are $149.00. All passes are plus applicable fees and are available at www.GulfCoastJam.com.

Many ticket packages are already sold out, and prices for remaining passes will increase on Friday, November 11. 

“Our list of headliners had already pushed ticket sales beyond any year in our history, and there’s no telling what’s going to happen when word about Kane Brown starts to spread!” said Gulf Coast Jam Presented by Jim Beam COO Mark Sheldon. “We’re excited about him hitting the stage next June, and we’re encouraging our Jammers to book their accommodations now.”
