The 2021 edition of the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam has been postponed to next year due to concerns over the recent surge in Covid-19 cases.
Florida reported the most new cases – 56,633 – and most COVID-related deaths – 239 – on Friday, marking the state’s highest single-day total of infections since the pandemic began.
“Due to the ongoing public health emergency caused by the current growth of Covid-19 cases in Bay County, Florida and across the country, the 9th Annual Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam, scheduled for September 3-5, 2021, in Panama City Beach, has been moved to June 3-5, 2022,” reads a statement on the Gulf Coast Jam website.
Those who purchased tickets for this year can either retain them for next year or request a refund at the Gulf Coast Jam website, the organizers said.
The Gulf Coast Jam said it encourages “everyone to follow guidelines and protocols instituted by local public health officials.”
Chris Stapleton, Brooks & Dunn and Old Dominion were scheduled to headline the 2021 Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam.
