Although a full lineup has yet to be revealed, Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam organizers announced who would occupy each day’s top slot and which evening they would perform during the event’s Aug. 31-Sept. 2 run at Frank Brown Park.

Florida Georgia Line will be the top act on Friday, Aug. 31; Eric Church performs on Saturday and Thomas Rhett closes out the festival on Sunday, Sept. 2.

The lineup for last year’s Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam included Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Jason Aldean, Tyler Farr, Brett Eldredge, Lee Brice, Kip Moore, Kane Brown, and Dan + Shay.  The festival’s 2017 estimated grossed was in the $7.5 million neighborhood.

“Last year was absolutely amazing, and we’re beyond excited about our headliners and can’t wait to get our entire lineup out there for this year,” Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam executive producer Rendy Lovelady said in a statement.  “We’re proud to have built this into the biggest country music festival in the Southeast, and we love showing off our fourth headliner – the beautiful beaches of Panama City.”

Tickets, including general admission, VIP, skybox, side stage, golden circle and VIP pit, go on sale April 15.  Special military tickets and early entry will also be available.  Watch Pollstar’s Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam page for updates.
