It’s official: Incubus, Sublime to headline SandJam
Organizers announced Friday that Incubus, Sublime with Rome and Fitz and the Tantrums will headline the inaugural SandJam in Panama City Beach.
Other featured artists include Capital Cities, St. Lucia, and 20 more artists that will be announced later.
“We’re really excited about the lineup. The headliners have built incredible fan bases and really know how to entertain,” executive producer Rendy Lovelady said. “I don’t think we could ask for a better lineup. This initial group of headliners and support acts are phenomenal, and we’re in the process of booking another 20 acts for the weekend.”
SandJam, presented by Pepsi, fueled by Circle K, is expected to bring in about 10,000 people a day to the M.B. Miller County Pier, where artists will perform on a beach stage. The festival will be held on the sands of the beach, and is replacing Spring Jam.
“There are a lot of factors that go in to booking any act for any festival. The bottom line is we want to draw people to this beautiful area and give the a great experience,” Lovelady said.
Festival producers Lovelady and Mark Sheldon also are behind the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam, which brought in over 64,000 music fans to the Beach in September, according to a press release.
SandJam also will offers fans cabana views, with cabanas accommodating up to eight people and including a backstage walkway, free draught beer, four drinks per day, personalized staff and more amenities, according to a press release. The festival’s website list the cabanas at $7,000 to $10,000.
Lovelady said organizers expect to reach out to broadcasting stations like Sirius XM and iHeart Media to market the event.
