Jelly Roll and Morgan Wallen are set to headline the 12th Annual Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City Beach, Florida.

Last month, the popular oceanside festival announced Morgan Wallen as the headliner for Sunday, June 2, 2024, after he was forced to cancel this year’s performance as he was placed on a six-week vocal rest.

“As we said last year, Morgan Wallen is one of the most requested headliners we have ever had in the history of Gulf Coast Jam, and his star is continuing to shine even brighter,” said festival Executive Producer Rendy Lovelady. “We’ve been working feverishly with Morgan and his team over the last three weeks to figure out a way to get him down here next year, and we’re happy to announce he is locked for 2024!”

Now, event organizers have revealed that Jelly Roll will take the stage as the Friday night headliner on May 31, 2024.

“Jelly Roll is absolutely exploding, and he was one of the top artists our Jammers kept raving about when we started putting our lineup together,” Lovelady shared. “We can’t be more excited to have him as one of our headliners next year.”

“Jelly Roll sold out Bridgestone Arena in Nashville last year, he’s winning awards, and his music and his amazing story are connecting with fans in a huge way,” added Gulf Coast Jam Presented by Jim Beam COO Mark Sheldon. “We can’t wait to have him on our stage next June!”

The announcement of the 2024 headliners comes after the success of this year’s event, which featured Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Kane Brown and HARDY. The 2023 installment of Gulf Coast Jam drew in an astounding 30,000 fans to the Florida Panhandle and recorded the event’s first sellout.

The 12th Annual Gulf Coast Jam is scheduled to take place on the beautiful Panama City Beach from Thursday, May 30, 2024, through Sunday, June 2, 2024. Additional headliners and the full lineup will be released in the coming weeks.

Although VIP packages for the 2024 Gulf Coast Jam have already sold out, there is still a chance to secure your spot with four-day general admission tickets, which are currently available.

Gulf Coast Jam Presented by Jim Beam is the largest music event in the Southeast and was previously 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.

Four-day General Admission, First Responder/Medical Personnel, Military, and College passes are available now. 

Jammers can follow Gulf Coast Jam Presented by Jim Beam at and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for special announcements about the festival.
