Plans for this weekend’s Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City Beach, Florida have been canceled due to Tropical Storm Hermine.
The three-day music festival was supposed to feature Eric Church, Brad Paisley and Jake Owen, but festival organizers say they’ve been forced to take down the staging and tents as the storm approaches. As a result, they won’t be able to get them back up in time for the festival Sept. 2-4.
Brett Eldredge, The Band Perry, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Granger Smith were also on the bill for the festival. City Mayor Mike Thomas says they’re disappointed to have to cancel the festival, but safety is their first concern.
He adds, “We look forward to welcoming the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam back next year.”
Fans who bought tickets for the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam can get a refund at the point of purchase. They can also leave their tickets in the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam system to use at the 2017 event.
