Military Appreciation Tent returning for 2018 Gulf Coast Jam
2018 Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam promoters aren’t just excited about such headliners as Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett and Eric Church. They’re also delighted to announce the Military Appreciation Tent will be returning to the event.
“The Military Appreciation Tent was a big hit last year, and we are honored to again partner with Jim Beam Vanilla to offer a location at the festival that specifically serves our military and their families,” said Rendy Lovelady, executive producer of the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam.
The tent is for active and retired military members and their families, according to a news release. Lounge seating areas, massage chairs and cooling fans will be inside the tent. Military attendees also can sign up for giveaways of Pepsi coolers, sunglasses and more inside the tent. The tent was introduced in 2015 to give back to those who serve the country.
Military ticket holders and their families will have to present their ticket at the gate to receive a wristband that will allow them access to the tent at no cost.
Florida Georgia Line, Church and Rhett will headline the festival scheduled for Aug. 31-Sept. 2 at Frank Brown Park. Music kicks off at 2 p.m. Justin Moore, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Chase Rice, Cam, Brett Young, Lauren Alaina, Rodney Atkins, Montgomery Gentry, Drake White, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Joe Diffie, Morgan Evans, A Thousand Horses, Tyler Rich, The Georgia Thunderbolts, Raleigh Keegan and the Pepsi Southern Original winner all are scheduled to perform for the three-day event.
More than 64,000 people from all 50 states and 13 countries attended the festival last year, according to the release. Last year’s attendance was the largest in the festival’s history.
Tickets are available and range from $149 general admission to $439 VIP Pit Experience, $699 VIP Golden Circle and $999 VIP Side Stage. Skyboxes are sold out. Military tickets will be $119 per person for all three days of the festival. The price will remain the same, but tickets are limited. Military members can purchase tickets for immediate family, and all group members must be present to enter the festival.
