The 5th annual Gulf Coast Jam will have the ground trembling with hundreds of toe tapping visitors! From September 1 through the 3rd–this is the best 3 days of live country music on Panama City Beach. Last year the audience was well over 15,000 people and that’s massive! This year is promising to be even bigger for festival goers and the line up even better than the previous. During the day, vacationers can enjoy the sugar white sands of the beach, but at sundown the true fun in the sun really begins. There will be free shuttle rides for those farther out from Frank Brown park, and these will run for the duration of the event.
With crowds this large it is also smart to make reservations in advance, though guests still have a full 7 months before this country music festival, this will guarantee visitors can get the accommodations that they want. However, with Panama City Beach hotels up and down the coast, visitors will have many options available to them–and if they book in early they’ll luck out with the more premier hotels and those special discounts as well. Seahaven beach hotel and others directly on the beach offer some fantastic savings for beach goers and put them right in the action too.
Gear Up For One of the Most Anticipated Events of 2017
Now, past years there were line headers like: Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood and many others. If country music fans thought it was amazing last year, there is plenty of time to ensure it is more than mesmerizing this year. And there are several different package prices to gain admission to this event as well. Visitors can purchase a 3 day pass and have access to shuttle service every day of the live concert. There’s a preferred lodging ticket package as well that will grant access to some very specific features too. If you go VIP then you’ll certainly have exclusive amenities to enjoy! Some of these include:
- Exclusive access to the main stage area
- VIP line entry to grounds
- Priority shuttle services
- VIP restrooms
- The ultimate VIP experience with lanyard included
There are also a couple of other ticket packages, but these do go up quite a bit in price but include extravagant features such as sky-boxes and excellent alcoholic beverages (4 paid for). It’s all basically about what you want to spend, but no matter where you might be you’ll have a great time with excellent music! Do be aware though, that general admission tickets will land you in the very back of the concert area, so you might be able to hear but you won’t have the visual impact that others will. The VIP pit is one of the preferred locations and those planning a visit certainly have the time to plan and save for this specific Panama City Beach event!
Of course, there will also be great vendors available for this specific event too–where visitors can purchase some novelties they can be proud of. Not only will tourists love the sights and sounds with terrific shopping, but there are almost always mouth watering good authentic street foods to enjoy as well. These are unforgettable and almost always have visitors coming back for seconds. All in all, this venue offers a memorable experience, especially for those who have never had the chance to visit and attend it. And there are some amazing beach resorts very close to all of this interaction–those like Seahaven Beach resort, Origin at Seahaven and yes, The Reef isn’t very far off from the excitement either. But, you choose what is just right for you and your family. As stated previously, the vast variety of hotels allows for each and every vacationer to have their expectations taken care of.
Beach Activities During the Day Live Music at Night
That’s right, you can leisurely stroll the beach, shell hunt, sun bathe, jet ski, or perhaps go parasailing during the day, but prepare for dynamite live entertainment in the evening these very special 3 days.
